About Wesley EvansEdit

Evan Wesley Smith (born August 13, 1997), better known as Wesley Evans, is an American singer-songwriter, from Pennsylvania.

2016: Musical Beginnings Edit

Wesley Evans began writing music in February 2016, during his freshman year of college. Before this, Evans had played around with creating songs and music, and had plans to create a different album, but scrapped that idea. It wasn't until he finished his first song, Barbed Wire, that he became serious about writing music and releasing an album. In June, he released Barbed Wire as his first single, thinking it was only fair to release his first completed song as his first single. In August, he released his second single, Fresh Air, which received a piano-version in September. In November, he released his first promotional single, Invisible Thief. This song was originally meant to be the first song off of his debut album, Trust Issues, but was removed from the album shortly after its release.

2017: Trust Issues Edit

In January, Wesley Evans released Your New Favorite, as the lead promotional single off of his debut album, Trust Issues. In March, Evans released the album's second promotional single, Captivated. In May, Evans released the third, and final, promotional single, StormCloud. In June, Evans released a special remix version of Barbed Wire to celebrate the one-year anniversary of releasing music. The remix, however, was not included on Trust Issues. In July, Evans released the album's lead single, Best for You. The song was accompanied with its B-Side, Looking for Harm. The song received a remix version in September, and an acoustic version in October. In November, Evans released the album's second single, Lock and Key, just two weeks before the album's release date. The single was released in accompaniment of its B-Side, Someday You'll Understand.
