Biography

There are at least three artists with the name James Evans.

1. James Evans
From frozen lakes to the ZepOcean

“It all started with that tone. The string vibrating over the fret board, being sustained over the bridge and sending these coloured frequencies into my ears, giving me a picture to the movements of those sounds to phrases.”

That comment from guitarist, composer and producer James Evans perfectly describes the passion James has for his instrument of choice and the impact it has made on the Canadian musician. And it’s a passion that started from a very early age…

Born in Windsor, Ontario, James was introduced to the guitar at the age of five. By nine he had achieved Grade 5 in Standard Guitar. When James was fourteen the Evans family moved to Pinehouse, Saskatchewan where the young teenager was introduced to Country, Fiddle and Jig music. The precocious six-stringer entertained and competed in ‘best act’ contests at the town hall before a move back to Windsor saw James playing rock music with various three-piece high school bands.

By sixteen James was back in Pinehouse, playing guitar - and driving trucks (graduating as the youngest ever to become licensed at age seventeen). James found the isolation of driving through such beautiful surroundings an amazing experience and one that greatly built his character, but music was never far away…

James played guitar in The Roy Corrigan Band and the rock band Danger Street before a move to Prince Albert led to James playing heavy rock and pop. Returning home once more to Windsor he played in a number of heavy rock and metal bands and began classical training.
