Evans & Church:

Vancouver Island based Acoustic Guitar Duo, who perform their own Mediterranean & Middle Eastern influenced Jazz compositions.

The passionate and sensual music of Evans & Church evokes the mystery and romance of exotic, faraway lands.

Vincent F. Evans: Guitars / Hand Percussion / Keyboards.
Richard Church: Guitars / Hand Percussion / Keyboards. http://www.ChannelEau.com

"The music itself is both passionate and organic. Church lays the foundation of a basic chord progression, which he constantly varies with different voicings and rhythms, over which Evans provides "extensive rhapsodic improvisation." Evans' improvisation is intuitive. The result is sensual and mesmerizing, transporting the listener from the mundane to the extraordinary."

- Lisa Szeker-Madden - Focus magazine.
