Pop, R&B, and soul singer-songwriter Jacob Evans is interviewed about his influences, favorite songs he’s written, favorite places to play, and much more.
What first got you into music?
Hard to say, but hearing music through headphones for the first time definitely did something different for me.
Who are some of your influences?
Richie Havens, John Legend, and System of a Down.
Do you have any personal favorite songs you’ve written, and why?

Make sure it’s real.
