Kris Evans

Kris Evans is an up and coming Urban music act from Manchester, making music since the age of 11. At 14 he was spotted by UK Battle Rapper Shotty Horror and co-signed to independent record label North City Entertainment.

 

Kris later joined the band The Mend who were finalists on Britain's Got Talent. They also went on to have a Top 40 hit, support Little Mix on tour and play many live shows across the UK and America. 

 

Now solo, Kris has been honing his individual sound in his studio in Manchester. His unreleased tracks 'Who's That Boy IV' and 'Nothing Changes' were picked up by BBC Introducing and the latter was named as Record of the Week on DJ Charlie Sloth's 1Xtra radio show. 

 

Kris has a loyal and growing social media following and his spoken word release ‘#HappyKristmas’ had over 30K views in only 24 hours. He’s focused on getting his music out to a wider audience and is currently playing gigs with his live band across the UK, receiving a great response. 

 

 

Kris has just been confirmed for this year's Sonder Music Festival and he was recently announced as the headline act for The Undisclosed event in July. There are more exciting live dates shortly to be announced.
