American Crooner to Perform in China


MEDIA RELEASE PR34598


LOS ANGELES, May 10 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --


    Brian Evans, the crooner, is preparing to perform in China, as soon as

the new CD is released in 2009. Likened to Frank Sinatra, Evans has been

performing in the United States as the opening act for such American talent

as Jay Leno, Joan Rivers, Social Distortion, and Dionne Warwick.

    But his turn is finally coming.


    His debut album will feature a duet with Kelly Osbourne, daughter of rock

legend Ozzy Osbourne, and of the 14 songs to be featured on the CD, Evans

wrote 8 of them. One song was written by Ahmet Zappa, son of rock legend

Frank Zappa.


    "I have always loved this genre of music," says Evans. "It tells a story,

and unless you've lived these songs, you don't have a right to sing them," he

says.


    Originally an actor on such American television shows such as "Full

House," Evans was born in Boston, Massachusetts and now calls Las Vegas home.

The new CD will be recorded at Capitol Records, and will be produced by

Grammy nominated producer Chris Walden.


    "I don't intend on rehashing the Sinatra material. No one will ever sing

Frank Sinatra songs better than Frank Sinatra," says Evans. "I intend on

writing new material in the same style, so that the genre gets a breath of

fresh air."


    Evans, who met Frank Sinatra as a boy, wants to continue the genre

without using the Sinatra material.


    "I think people want to hear something new, but with respect for the

style."


    The new CD will feature a full big band. Previous recordings are

available at iTunes.


    Evans intends to travel to China this summer to appear on various

television programs to promote the new CD. He has performed corporate and

special events in China, but this will be his first foray into the general

public in China.
