Brian Evans was born in Haverhill, Massachusetts.
The son of Helen Marie Wilson and William Evans, Brian began his career at the age of 11 when he appeared on the popular Boston morning show, “Community Auditions,” which starred host Dave Maynard.
Taking his career to the next level, Brian has been called one of the premier “big band crooners” by practically every entertainment publication that has ever existed, from People Magazine to Maclean’s Magazine, from Readers Digest to USA Today.
His music has been used by David Lee Roth on his “The Roth Show,” and on popular TV shows such as BoJack Horseman, Drop Dead Diva, So You Think You Can Dance, The Wedding Weekend, and in commercial campaigns for Vodafone and many others.
As the opening act, he has begun the show for Jay Leno, Joan Rivers, Lou Rawls, Social Distortion, Franki Valli, Erasure, Carrot Top, and the list goes on. He also guest starred on shows ranging from "Beverly Hills, 90210," to "Full House."
His music video, “At Fenway,” has garnered close to 12 million views on YouTube, and features William Shatner as the home plate umpire. This milestone led to Brian Evans, Helen Marie Bousquet, and William Shatner all being added to The National Baseball Hall of Fame, and The Baseball Almanac. His second video, “Creature,” was filmed at The Bates Motel, and is the first time Universal Studios and The Alfred Hitchcock Estate have ever approved the use of the famed location for the iconic major motion picture, “Psycho,” be used for an entire music video. It received close to 300,000 views during just the week of Halloween, and is being groomed as the new standard for Halloween songs in this century.
Brian’s next release will be in March, 2016, when his take on the Dolly Parton classic “Here You Come Again,” is released both as a single and as a music video. The music video, filmed on Maui, Hawaii, co-stars William Shatner, Dog The Bounty Hunter, Beth Chapman, Leland Chapman, and legendary “Latin King of Comedy” star Paul Rodriguez. In December, DMDS reported that it was the #6 (The Weeknd was #7) most added single to radio...and that's two months before the music video has even debuted.
Brian’s next video production will be directed by William Shatner, entitled “Planet Blue.” It will be Executive produced by Dog The Bounty Hunter, Beth Chapman, Carrot Top, and Brian Evans himself.
Music, however, is not Brian’s only talent. In 2014 he released his first novel, “Horrorscope,” and in 2015 released “Horrorscope II,” and the comedy novel, “The Funny Robbers,” co-written by Carrot Top’s manager, Dan O’Leary, as a feature film vehicle for the star. Both “Horrorscope” and “The Funny Robbers” are being developed for the big screen. Brian is now working on several additional fictional novels, and is also preparing an autobiography simply titled “Me,” with a Foreword by William Shatner. His booked are available in paperback, kindle, and audio book (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Audible, etc.).
Brian is also the creator of The Maui Celebrity Series, which presents stars on the island of Maui almost every month. To date, Brian has brought Mos Def, Academy Award winner Jeff Bridges, Emmy winner Roseanne Barr, Emmy winner William Shatner, Emmy winner Louie Anderson, and stars ranging from Bob Saget to Citizen Cope. While Brian typically opens for the shows, he also incorporates local talent in the hopes of giving them an opportunity to add to their own resumes. In just four shows, Brian has grossed over $1 million in sales and sponsorship partnerships. In April, his series will be presented at The Lahaina Civic Centre Amphitheatre and a capacity that went from 500...to nearly 3,000.
"Two years ago I was scraping change for coffee creamer, unable to get up after the loss of my mother. I have a firm belief that my mother is behind me, and a strong belief in God," says Evans. "I am grateful, and fully aware that no one deserves this life. What is most important to me though, is that I am earning my living from my work, the work my mother helped me to accomplish."
Brian Evans, with the help of Oscar winner Jeff Bridges and legendary star William Shatner, have been avid supporters of The American Sleep Apnea Association, after Brian lost his mother in 2012 due to this condition following what was supposed to be a routine knee surgery.
