Evans has just completed a year of solid touring and promotional activities in both the USA, the UK and Australia.

He’s done so primarily as a one man band. But Evans says that journey is now coming to an end.

“I started playing with a loop pedal around 4 years ago when I moved to the US full time and my Australian band didn’t move with me,” said Evans today on social media. 

“Starting with a 2 button version from guitar centre and driving around in my old F150, through to designing and building our own custom looping setup, opening tours for some of my favourite bands and playing my first world tour,” he continued.

Evans now plans to spend some time in the studio for the next couple of months.

“I’m taking a break from the road for the next couple months to make more music … I’ll be bringing a full band for the next chapter,” he said.

Evans’ next performance (with his exciting new band) will be as one of the headliners of CMC Rocks Qld 2020.
