Singer-Songwriter, Acoustic Guitarist
Alexandra Lillian Evans, known professionally by her first and middle name, is a country-pop/rock singer-songwriter from the San Francisco area. Her family knew when she was young that she had a singing voice and, with contagious energy and enthusiasm and an endearing passion for writing, great potential as an artist.
At age 9, after being cast as an ensemble member in a local production of Aladdin, Alexandra became hooked on musical theatre, adding guitar and voice lessons to her repertoire when she was 14. Until age 18, her senior year of high school, Alexandra performed at various music events in her hometown such as school cabaret nights and talent shows, open mic nights, reception-style birthday celebrations and a wedding.
After two years at community college and a four-year break from performing, Alexandra moved across the country in 2018 to complete her B.S. in journalism at Boston University. Her combined theatrical and musical experience of almost a decade never left her back pocket. The now 23-year-old felt inspired by Boston's music scene and eventually discovered Bristol Studios in early 2019. Despite the time gap in her music career, the studio director said, her extensive background would serve her well.
Her songwriting journey began in late April of that year. She took her first two originals, "Arizona Boy" and "Once a Babe" to Bristol, catching producers' attention. Alexandra recorded both songs in May and they were released on all streaming platforms as singles in June. Since the release, “Arizona Boy” has been aired on radio stations and garnered listeners in the United States, Canada, France, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Austria, Peru, Brazil, Chile, Mauritius, Russia, Philippines, Taiwan, and Australia. Within one week of the initial airing, the song was ranked 4+ stars out of 6 by several disc jockeys worldwide. The French station FACE2RADIO alone has aired the song over 50 times.
Alexandra's debut EP, “Aesthetics,” was released in September 2019 and features new originals: “Smoke Show,” (released as a third single in August) “Adhesive,” and “She Won.” She is currently working on her debut full-length album, "Just Drive," set for a spring 2020 release.
Alexandra embraces her multiethnic background, which consists of Korean, Japanese, Irish, Welsh, Scottish, English, and French descent. She values originality, takes pride in being one of few Asian American country-influenced artists, and credits Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Maroon 5, Lady Gaga, and Ed Sheeran as some of her greatest musical influences.
