Evans and Stokes

We met online back in October of 2016 and right from the beginning we seemed to click musically. Although we come from completely different backgrounds our musical tastes meshed well, as did our desire to put our creations out there for others to hear. We started with collaborating on one song, which turned out to be the song ‘Kingdom’ which is on our first album. The music had already been written by John but was in need of lyrics and vocals, and Jenny was eager to contribute. The experience we had finalizing this song was enough to know that our partnership was solid. So we decided to go full on and make the Metal concept album ‘Beyond The Gates’. The album took over 10 months to complete and with the two of us being literally on opposite sides of the planet it was a huge undertaking. The fact is that we have only spoken to each other one time! One time we had a Skype call to discuss the vision for the album. The rest of the process was done through thousands of emails, sharing files on Dropbox, etc. Back and forth, and back and forth, until each song was complete. An exhausting but very rewarding process. So that’s our story through today, but it is still evolving as we create more music together. Stay tuned!
