Life and career[edit]

Early life and career beginnings[edit]

Evans was raised in Stockbridge, Georgia. After graduating from Stockbridge High School, he began his career as a professional drummer for the band Marching Two-Step, which included Michele Rhea Caplinger, Ed Roland and Matt Serletic. The band performed local gigs for a few years, but never managed to grow beyond the club scene.

Collective Soul[edit]

Evans performed on half of the tracks featured on Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid, an album consisting of Ed Roland's songwriting demos.[3] Evans was dismissed from the group in 2001 due to excessive drug use.
