Details:
Belizean music in Evan''s early days was a combination of Brukdon, Lash Weh and Boom an''chime. You can find aspects of all of them in his songs. "I cannot let them go. That''s the foundation. But when I write a song, I don''t try to write any particular style of song. I just let it be. I believe a song can compose itself, at least that''s what I feel. It''s all roots with me, so to speak. "

Evan enjoys the music of MIRIAM MAKEBA, LOUIS ARMSTRONG, BELLA CARIB, THE MARLEYS, PETER TOSH and more musicians than you can https://www.tradebit.com listens to classical music. He listens to country. Evan doesn''t care about listening to any one particular style of music, or being one particular style of musician. "Reggae, I love it! Soca, I love it! Ska! I dig it. Dance Hall. That''s it!"

He expresses this thought in a song you can hear on his CD: WE ARE ONE or read in his book: SONGS OF POETRY

Musical Farmer

I don''t prejudice when it comes to music.
I no prejudice when it comes to a song.
There are some of them who brag
that all the music come from Africa.
So why they exclude one from another?
All you do is contradict yourself.

I am a musical farmer
I am a musical farmer.

You want to know why? -- I plant my
music in the brain , in the brain
cultivate it in the heart,
in the mind, body and soul.

(Bridge)

I am fighting so hard to make
this one work.
I am fighting so hard to make
this one work.
Can you put jealousy aside
and make this one work?
All I am saying
is come together.

Don''t be like crab inna barrel--
as one reach the top, you pull
him back down.
They find fault because they
dislike my progress.
So remember not everyone
will reach that top.

I don''t prejudice when it comes to music.
I no prejudice when it comes to a song.
Why exclude one from another?
All you do is contradict yourself.

I am a musical farmer
I am a musical farmer.
