Dave Evans sings with a power and soul that few others possess, and that comes from sheer talent as well as a life lived hard. He grew up along the Ohio River and further inland in the Buckeye State of Ohio. His father, known as Pop, was a clawhammer-style banjo player and by eight years of age Evans had acquired the five-string bug. As a young up-and-coming musician, Evans honed his craft during some stints with great bluegrass musicians such as Earl Taylor, Red Allen, The Goins Brothers and The Boys From Indiana. Evans also spent a few influential years with another bluegrass legend, Larry Sparks.
Dave Evans takes his place among the bluegrass legends thanks to his amazingly expressive voice and a style that is unique to the music. Bad Moon Shining
marked Evans’ return to Rebel Records after an absence of several years, and he returned in as good a form as ever. In places, Evans uses a moody, bluesy guitar instead of his usual banjo, creating a spellbinding feel on some tracks across an equally enthralling album.
