Prior to releasing four albums of his own original music, composer/arranger John Evans had been best known for his work with saxophonist David Sanborn on the RIAA certified gold, Grammy-nominated album, HIDEAWAY. Evans composed and co-penned with Sanborn, the tune that became the single release for the album.
This past year, Evans released three successful music videos. One of them, All I Wanna' Do is Dance has already received over one million views on YouTube.
