George Evans George Evans

Recognized as one of the foremost vocal interpreters of standards on the Canadian scene, George Evans has been celebrated diversely as “a ballad's best friend” (All-Canadian Jazz Festival) and “an agile voice and always swinging” (National Post) and praised for lively, polished performances in cities such as New York, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, and Shanghai. Since 1997 George self-released seven CDs as a leader, including a ballad collection. The current album, “LIVE at the Cellar” has been heard on jazz outlets on five continents.

Getting his start in New York Cabaret in the 80s, George became a part of the Montréal club scene in the 90s. Introduced to Canadian jazz fans by Katie Malloch on CBC’s JazzBeat, he went on to perform nationally in concert, clubs and the festival circuit. He debuted in Toronto in 1999 with the launch of his second album (I’m All Smiles) at the Top o' the Senator, and appeared there regularly through the launch of his fifth album (Movie Songs) in 2005.

George Evans became familiar to audiences at home through appearances on TVO, Bravo, and CoolTV, as well as in studio and concert for the CBC. Evans founded “The Three Crooners” in promotion of his successful project as producer, “Here Come The Boys: a Canadian Crooner Collection” for Universal Music Canada, A three time National Jazz Awards Canada nominee as “Male Vocalist of the Year” or “Vocalist of the Year,” George has twice been nominated for a MAC Award, and was nominated Ontario Independent Music Awards “Jazz Artist of the Year.”

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.
