Jake Evans, is a solo musician, but not like any other out there at the moment.

Bands and musicians are strongly coming out of the North, and whilst the region might not be an economic powerhouse, it is certainly a talent powerhouse. Jake Evans, is a solo musician, but not like any other out there at the moment. Though people such as Jake Bugg, and James Bay have monopolized the mainstream with their partly self-written music, Jake Evans seems to be a more classy act.

Not only does he seem to be a man that stands on his own two feet lyrically, but the necessity for a second guitarist would appear to be beyond his needs. Though he may stand alone, he has been joined by the likes of Bernard Sumner of New Order and Joy Division on stage. Whilst he does freely employ the influences of past Mancunion exports he does also collaborate, while Bernard Sumner features on the album there is also a feature of Jimi Goodwin of Doves.

'Glorious' takes you right back to the early 2000s of guitar pop and anthem-like Guitar riffs. Most appreciatively, the song isn’t overdone but isn’t simplistic. There are many textures amongst the sound of Glorious from the rapturous drums straight through to the under the cuff Bass line holding the song tight.

It’s no surprise that with praise coming from the likes of Sumner and Goodwin that Jake Evans is heading out on his own headline tour amidst the release of his Debut album. Not only in past gigs has he sold out a hometown show in Night and Day’s Café, but they also sold out The Black Heart in London in association with Radio X.
