Adriana Evans

Adriana Evans, born as Adriana Madera, is an American R&B vocalist and was among the pioneers of the late-'90s and early-2000s neo-soul movement. She was born 1974 in San Francisco, CA, the only child of jazz recording artist Mary Stallings, who sang with Count Basie, and Dizzy Gillespie. Evans' godfather is jazz saxophonist and former John Coltrane band partner Pharoah Sanders. This childhood immersion in jazz was always apparent in Evans' later recordings. At the age of 18 she moved to Los Angeles, where she met rapper Dred Scott. Her friendship with Scott grew into a musical relationship. In 1993 this led to her appearance on Scott's single "Check the Vibe" off his Breakin' Combs LP. In 1995, the two wrote and recorded her pioneering self-titled debut album on Capitol Records. Changes at Capitol landed Adriana and her debut record on RCA/Loud Records and it was officially released in 1997. The album featured Scott's hip-hop-centric production backing Evans' jazz-influenced vocals -- combined with live instrumentation, it was a significant departure from the R&B of the day. It was more of a critical and cult success, reaching only the number 33 position on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Its two singles, "Love Is All Around" and "Seeing Is Believing," charted, with the former reaching number 65 on the R&B charts and the latter reaching number 50. Following the release of her debut record, Adriana became disillusioned with the music industry and took refuge in Brazil, and didn't record a follow-up until 2004's Nomadic, an album that dabbled in various genres, held together by a theme of what she described as "African music." The next year she released Kismet. In 2007 Evans released El Camino, an album that seems, more so than her previous records, more heavily influenced by her stay in Brazil. Evans' fifth LP, Walking with the Night, was released in 2010; "Weatherman" was the album's first single. ~ Vincent Thomas, Rovi

Been a fan of her since her album dropped but rarely hear anything about her. I have all her albums but never see/hear about concerts or anything. If you search YouTube there is a an old BET Planet Groove concert of her. That'll have to do until she decides to come to the ATL...
I call her The Soul Soother.

I played this CD until it was demolished. Adriana should be much bigger than she is... her vocal talent and stylings are amazing!
Her latest album is great, I wish it was on here. But good job Pandora on getting her first album on here.
beautiful woman, beautiful voice....
jimmylee73

Talented.... . B e a u t i f u l . . . s m o o t h . . . . .
Great album with a laid back sort of vibe. I can recall hearing "Love is All Around" on the radio over the years wondering why the general public never "got her". Pleasantly surprised to hear her distinctive voice on the theme song for HBO series Noah's ARC. Ms. Evans still has it!
JUST saw the video for 7 Days off the Nomadic album, not yet featured here on Pandora. How do we get it on? Sounds n looks like an Instant Classic to me. With sounds and images like this I'm betting she WILL get her due!

I love love love the first cd she released in 97. I have replaced it twice and I am currently seeking a third replacement. It is sad that her vocal talents are under appreciated. It reminds me of another great vocalist who was not appreciated. . . P h y l l i s Hyman. I can only hope that someone will get a clue and give this girl her due ( I did not mean for that to rhyme...lol)
beautiful and wonderful artist. i wish so bad she had made it mainstream, so under appreciated.
@ Eiyana Favers, I do agree she is a spectaular artist and gifted singer/songw r i t e r , I wished she did receive more exposure and I have enjoyed her musical genius since '97 and the latest album does exemplify the same brilliance as the 1st! Much luv to AE! @ Susie: check out "Remember the love" on "Nomadic" hot joint
She is someone who when you hear her you will never forget her vocals(album was wonderful!) but I always forget her name! Cant even find the album-bought it back in the days! I wish she would come back! May have to go diggin' the crates for her moms stuff too!

I bought this cd when it came out in 1997. Its all that and then some. You just press play and nothing else. Unfortunatle y she hasn't come out with anything else since then which is truley sad. She needs to and can come back but where the hell is she?
Wow...just heard this! Never heard of her, but this song is great!

Okay I dunno who this girl is...Adriana Evans but somebody need to put her music on blast. She has brought it back old skool style.
