Having already graced the stage at the Hollywood Bowl earlier this year and receiving rave reviews from Billboard , Variety , and Entertainment Weekly as ‘Beast’ in Disney’s Beauty & the Beast, powerhouse vocalist, author and actor Anthony Evans is preparing to release his new album, “Everything Else” on Friday, November 2nd. We would love to arrange an interview with you and Anthony to discuss his highly anticipated album that takes a departure from last years’ last #1 Billboard Gospel Album “Back to Life.” Anthony is also available to discuss his incredible journey as an artist since competing on NBC’s “The Voice,” and having since worked in the studio with such artist including Mariah Carey, Sam Smith, Kanye West, and 2Chainz, as well as his recently released book, “Unexpected Places: Thoughts on God, Faith, and Finding Your Voice.”
Set to release “Everything Else,” his ninth studio album (fifth studio album as an independent artist) after the success of his 2017 #1 Billboard Gospel Album “Back to Life,” Anthony is ready to make the transition into a more mainstream sound but maintain the same quality that his fans have grown to love. Drawing inspiration from his own life experience and always wanting to continue to grow his sound, and a push from both Christina Aguilera and Jewel to expand his musical horizons, Evans gives much of the credit of his new album to all-star producer Max Stark (Tori Kelly, Tamela Mann, Kirk Franklin), and esteemed vocal arranger Tim Davis (Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Sam Smith, Mariah Carey). With an unconventional, stereotype-shattering mindset, Anthony’s new album will unequivocally draw in the masses with his soaring vocals and personally penned songs that reflect his musical journey.
Anthony’s recently released book, “Unexpected Places: Thoughts on God, Faith, and Finding Your Voice,” is the personal story about his life as the son of well-known pastor Tony Evans and brother of author Priscilla Shirer. In this intimate and moving memoir, Anthony shares the details of his struggles with depression and doubt and encourages readers with the unique story of his search for purpose and identity. From growing up duty-bound to his name, to his time as a finalist and then talent producer on “The Voice,” Anthony explores the pressures he experienced as a child and as a young man in Hollywood.
Anthony was born into a family known for singing and decided to pursue it as a career at the age of 18. After following in his father’s footsteps in the gospel arena, Anthony moved to Los Angeles to pursue other avenues and ended up being a finalist on 2012’s season of “The Voice.” After being eliminated to everyone’s shock, the creators of the show created “The Steal,” which is still used in today’s season. Evans also returned to the voice for seasons 7-9 as a talent producer to help find musicians for the show.
