Kris Evans, an up and coming Urban music act from Middleton, Manchester, was formerly in the band The Mend who were finalists on Britain’s Got Talent and went on to have a Top 40 hit and support Little Mix on tour.
Now solo, Kris released his hot new single ‘Mine’ on 29 September 2017.
‘Mine’ is a personal song that Kris wrote following a painful time in his life that made him cautious about the motives and actions of others. It showcases his distinctive vocals, rap and flow alongside a fresh sound that mixes classic jazz and soul influences with 808 trap drums.
‘Mine’ is the follow up to Kris’ debut solo single ‘N.U.M.B’, the proceeds of which were donated to the ‘We Stand Together Manchester’ Fund to support families of those killed and injured in the Manchester Arena attack.
‘N.U.M.B’ recently won the ‘Best R&B/Hip-Hop Song’ category in the Unsigned Only Awards. Kris was the only UK act nominated in the category and, in fact, the only UK winner across all categories. Almost 6,000 tracks were submitted to the competition from over 100 countries so that is quite an achievement!
‘N.U.M.B’ has also been nominated as one of only 10 finalists in the ‘Best Unsigned Song’ category at the 2017 Unsigned Music Awards hosted by Best of British. http://www.
Kris is working hard to get his music to a wider audience. His tracks ‘N.U.M.B’, ‘Who’s That Boy IV’ and ‘Nothing Changes’ have all featured on BBC Introducing with the latter named as ‘Gas Track of the Week’ on DJ Charlie Sloth’s 1 Xtra show.
Kris recently headlined his first show as part of Sonder Music Festival in Manchester and he then went on to perform at this year’s Sundown Festival.
