Adison Evans Adison Evans

Evans combines pure excitement with a soulful saxophone sound and a contagious smile to create one compelling performance after another.. She has shared the stage with several legendary artists including Demi Lovato, Trisha Yearwood, Nicki Minaj, Wynton Marsalis, Christian McBride, Terence Blanchard, JayZ, and many more. She made her debut in the pop world playing in the 2013 Superbowl with Beyonce. Upon graduating from the Juilliard School, Adison embarked on a two and a half year adventure thus far playing and touring with Beyoncé in the “Mrs Carter Show World Tour” followed by Beyonce and JayZ in the history making “On The Run” Tour. Adison can be heard on the album that crashed iTunes, “Beyoncé” and seen in many of her music videos including “Countdown”, the HBO Beyonce specials, and Beyonce dvds.

Adison is proud to release her debut album, “Hero”, a tribute to those who have shaped her into the musician and young woman she is today, featuring her unique melody driven compositions in addition to ones by her heroes, Stevie Wonder, Beyoncè, Steve Wilson, Sonny Rollins, and more. The album features the AEQ, comprised of musicians she’s been playing with since moving to New York to attend Juilliard eight years ago.

Adison endorses Vandoren reeds and mouthpieces, and the Cannonball Raven Alto Saxophone.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
