Evan James is one of the latest set of singer songwriters to come out of the rich Colorado music scene. After moving from Cincinnati, James cut his teeth playing a litany of bars and coffee shops around Denver before releasing his first EP, When You Walk, in the winter of 2020.
With his latest EP, The Breeze and The Birds, James takes a step into uncharted emotional territory, tracking the relationship between broken relationships of the past, the process of forgiveness, and the fight to forge a new future. Set against the backdrop of classic Americana rhythms and strong hooks, you can feel the smooth edges of the music battling to contain the raw emotion of the storylines.
