After many years of vacillating between being a professional musician and building a nest in Asheville, Stephen Evans asked the True Grits to form and make some music together.
Then in June of 2015, Stephen Evans & the True Grits released their debut LP, “Something to Bleed”, and in 2017, their EP, “Under the Bridge”. Both records received local and regional praise for its passion and creativity. The True Grits are Brian Shoemaker (bass/vocals), Sam Hess (drums) and Woodstock (mandolin) who add complimentary color as well as solid driving rhythm.
Stephen’s strong melodic songwriting style is a blend of creative imagery of darkness and hopeful optimism. There is no denying the passion that shines through with powerful vocals and lyrics. Songs like ‘The Garden’, ‘Cherokee Hills’, ‘1000 Roses’ and ‘Shining Star’ are beacons of his folk rock songcraft. With local radio play on WNCW 88.7, 98.1 The River, and the local online radio station, Buzz Radio Asheville, as well as shows around the Carolina region, Stephen Evans & the True Grits are becoming a local favorite. A new album is on the way for 2022 so they look to continue that trend.
