But that’s only half the story. Evan is also one of the most thoughtful and dedicated human beings I know. He is a true seeker and is on a continuing quest to live a deliberate life. He is full of love for humanity, and that’s not a platitude. He walks the walk and talks the talk. That in itself is truly inspiring. If you want to get to know Evan as a person check out the video called “Uncovering the Love” at the bottom of this post.
Thank you Evan for your continued presence in the JPQ and in my life.
BONUS VIDEO: I had to post this here too. This is a live performance of the Nick Drake tune “Three Hours” that the JPQ did at a masterclass at Cal. State University, Bakersfield on our Spring tour. This is the performance that Evan references in the above video. I agree with him that this was a turning point for the band. With this performance, everything clicked, and we jumped to a new level as a group. Sadly, Evan is on the very edge of the picture, but his bass solo is astounding. I was actually crying by the end. My reaction at the end of the tune was genuine!
