Saxophonist Adison Evans Releases Debut Album
Known for her work with Beyoncé, Jay Z and Demi Lovato, Adison Evans debut album, HERO, draws on her influences, travels and life experience that have influenced her both musically and personally for a deeply personal offering, that encompasses a love for jazz, R&B and positive affirmation.
Adison Evans is a dynamic millennial who has shared the stage with several legendary artists including: Trisha Yearwood, Nicki Minaj, Wynton Marsalis, Christian McBride, Terence Blanchard, Jay Z, and many more.
Evans made her debut in the pop world playing at the 2013 Super Bowl with Beyoncé. Upon graduating from the Juilliard School, Evans 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 Beyoncé and Jay Z in the history making On The Run Tour. Evans can also be heard on the album that crashed iTunes, Beyoncé, and has been seen in many of her music videos, including "Countdown," the HBO Beyoncé specials, and Beyoncé DVDs.
HERO is Evans' debut jazz offering, a well beyond her years emerging baritone and alto saxophonist who has done more world travel at the age of 25, than most of her contemporaries.
Evans takes those experiences to task, penning original compositions that offer deeper meaning and a sense of space and rhythm that normally takes years to achieve. Her infectious melodies offer a hand shake of jazz history and bridge-gap of genres with something for every generation to enjoy.
In a recent press release, Hrayr Attarian of All About Jazz commends Evans for a high caliber debut release that is sure to mark the first of many fine offerings from the talented saxophonist:
"With Hero, Adison Evans has made it clear that she is a creatively ambitious and immensely talented unique voice in modern music.
"This accomplished first release sets the stage for her brilliant future career."
Recorded at RiRo Muzik in Brooklyn, NYC in April of 2015 and Engineered and Mixed by Rozhan Razman, including Mastering Engineer Dave Darlington of Bass Hit Recording, HERO was fully-funded 100% by Evans' fans who were excited about her debut, which gave Adison personal control over the synergetic vision of the project that was release in the Winter of 2016.
