Orrin Evans

I have learned many things from this pandemic. My father passed when he was only 65 years old, and my mother was only a few days shy of her 70's birthday. In my late 20's 65-70 years old seemed so far away. Today "some of my best friends are between the ages of 65 & 70," hence my desire to live in the NOW. Buy that property, start that business, go on that vacation, make that doctor's appointment, have that conversation, have faith in something, have faith in someone, have faith in yourself, and LIVE LIFE! I've always been a seize the moment kind of person, but 2020 proved that I could do more. My oldest son is the same age I was when my father died, and my youngest is the same age I was when I got married. I'm blessed to be here, so NOW is the time to be there for my sons. Maybe even more important than when they were babies. It's time to be there 100% as a Husband, Father, Musician, Uncle, Brother, Son-In-Love, and Friend! Now is where I find JOY! Now is where I find LOVE! Now is SCARY but extremely rewarding!
"The Magic Of Now" is released today on Smoke Session Records. Is it my "best" record? Is the sound excellent? Do the musicians gel-like never before? Are the compositions groundbreaking? Will it win a Grammy? Will it make the top list in 2021? I have NO IDEA, but I do know it's my celebration of living life and loving NOW while looking forward to tomorrow with a SMILE ON MY FACE! Grab your copy, and I pray it encourages you to LIVE! Available wherever you buy music!
Love & Peace!
