Born May 5, in Windsor, Ontario Canada, Guitarist of Pop/Rock Instrumental. On September 1, 2010 James has released his second self-produced CD “ZepOcean”. Current contributing talent include, Brian Doerner on drums (Helix,Saga), Steve Hogg on Bass (Ian Thomas Band) and mixer Richard Chycki (Rush, Aerosmith, Pink). On October 10, 2010 James Evans has released a solo guitar and sitar CD entitled "Transform". Also available on iTunes and CD Baby.
This album had taken James 3 yrs to complete due to some challenges he faced during the process.
Initially the album began in 2006 when one day James woke up to find his Ulnar nerve in his left arm to be severed. This stopped him from playing for nearly 2 years.
He then began working with track selections and booked the studio. Technical problems ensued with studios during the tracking process and James found himself as service tech trying to get through these trying times. Scheduling was also an issue where contributing artists were either on the road or tracking at another studio, this caused further delays.
In the final process James was very fortunate to have hooked up with renown Producer/Mixer/Engineer, Richard Chycki, who inspired to keep the project on target and focused. Richard brought his mixing skills to bring the project to where it is today, complete. Mastering was done by Andy VanDette, Chief Mastering Engineer at MasterDisk in New York. Again another quality talent brought to the project. CD Design and layout was contributed by James and Roee Gold.
