Marc Avon Evans, newly relocated to Takoma Park, hosts the long-running, verging-on-legendary Thursday Night Acoustic Soul open mic and is the very personification of charisma. His elegant baritone vocals exude confidence and honey one moment, sheer sensuality the next, all the while expressing a positive message of community and family. He's truly the SOUL of Baltimore Soul.
"Marc A. Evans, a native Baltimorean, was born into music. Yet amazingly, this son of a vocalist and jazz saxophonist didn't discover his own music until his late teens. Finally, as a student at Morgan State University, under the tutelage of Dr. Nathan Carter, Evans began nurturing a love for music. Out of that nurturing arises one of the most sultry, smoky baritones ever. That smooth voice meshed with passionate delivery sets Evans apart from the rest as one of the most talented vocalists of the millennium."
