Alexis Evans, a timeless songwriter based in Bordeaux, found a love for music and learned to play the guitar from his father, an English musician. His inspirations range from Marvin Gaye and Sam Cooke to David Bowie. At the age of 17, he debuted his first project "Jumpin' to the Westside", with which he received the "Cognac Blues Passion" award.

He flew to the "International Blues Challenge" in Memphis, Tennessee, where he impressed the American public, while still a teenager. Evans made a name for himself on the scene as "soul's golden boy" starting with his debut album, released in 2015, and solidified his reputation with his second LP "I've Come a Long Way," released in 2019 by Record Kicks. Rolling Stone France described it as "Soul Album of the Year," while Blues & Soul Magazine and BBC 6 defined it as "One of the most exciting additions to the international soul scene." After the release of this last album, Alexis toured extensively in France and Europe, only stopped in 2020 by the Pandemic. Thanks to this forced break, Alexis started writing the new album, and is now ready to present the fruit of his hard work: "Yours Truly".
