Adriana Evans

I’ve been listening to Adriana Evans song “Suddenly” on Streetwise Radio. She reminds me of the late great Phyllis Hyman. This amazing talent is a native Californian, born and raised in San Francisco. Adriana has singing in her blood. Her mother Mary Stalling sang with some jazz greats Count Basie, Dizzy Gillespie and her godfather jazz saxophonist Pharoah Sanders. That would have been incredible growing up around all that talent. Adriana debut album self-title was released in 1997. She was so dissatisfied with the music industry in the United States. She went to Brazil for a while and didn’t record for seven years. When she did decide to record she released an album called “Nomadic” this album had various genres of music, especially African music. Adriana released 3 more albums “Kismet” in 2005, “El Camino” in 2007 and “Walking With the Night” in 2010. She is so underrated. Artists like her need to receive air play instead of some of this crap their playing on the on-air radio stations. Thank God for internet radio. My favorite songs are “Love Me On The One”, “Let You Get Away”, “Suddenly”, “Waiting”, “Never Thought”, “Blue Bird” and “Undercover”. Listen to Adrina on Streetwise Radio, Live365,Athena365,MyGen365,iTunes,Pandora.
