David Evans grew up in Brownsburg, IN just outside of Indianapolis. He was introduced to music at a young age by his mom who was a music teacher and dad who was a music minister at their church. David began writing songs and playing the guitar at the age of 14 which sparked his interest in songwriting as a profession and eventually led to his move to Nashville in 2013. Prior to his move, in 2009, David won the songwriting portion of the Indiana Farm Bureau High School arts competition. The next four years Evans attended Anderson University in Anderson, Indiana where he earned his degree in music. His last semester of college he was selected to attend the Contemporary Music Center in Brentwood, TN where he focused on songwriting and performance. With the direction and help of award winning songwriter, Rick Elias, he was able to fine tune his songwriting skills in Music City where he made the move to after graduating. In 2016 he independently released his first EP Something About a Love Song which was featured on iTunes and peaked at #29 on the iTunes country charts. Evans is currently working on unveiling his second project, starting with his latest single, Miss Taken.
As an independent writer, Evans has cuts with independent artists including Lacey Caroline, Adam Mac, Addison Johnson, and Sasha McVeigh. His song, All over but the Cryin’, that he co-wrote with Addison Johnson and John Griffin helped Addison’s Cherokee Blues record reach #5 on the iTunes country charts. His song, When I’m Over You, recorded and co-written by Sasha McVeigh was featured on Spotify’s “Wild Country” playlist twice and has accumulated over 600,000 spins on Spotify.
Evans regularly plays venues such as Tippy Creek Winery and George Jones. Over the summer, he played in Ireland and Scotland where he and his fellow writer and artist, Megan Barker, were invited to play for a wedding. While in the UK, they played at several venues around the area. He has also done several events for the military where he has received a Certificate of Appreciation by the 101st Airborne.
