Born and raised in North Manchester, Kris Evans is an Urban artist with a passion for music.
Kris was initially spotted by UK Battle Rapper Shotty Horror and co-signed to independent record label North City Entertainment.
Kris was later scouted to join the Manchester band The Mend who reached the finals of Britain’s Got Talent. Their debut single ‘Where Were You?’ reached the UK Top 40 and they were selected by Little Mix to support them on their DNA tour.
Kris’ love of performing has also seen him play gigs across America at iconic venues including Whisky A Go Go.
In late 2016, Kris released ‘#HappyKristmas’ which gained over 30k views in only 24 hours.
2017 has seen Radio 1 DJ Charlie Sloth name Kris’ unreleased track ‘Nothing Changes’ as his Record of the Week and his singles ‘N.U.M.B’ and ‘Mine’ have been picked up by BBC Introducing.
‘N.U.M.B’ recently won ‘Best R&B/Hip-Hop Song’ at the 2017 Unsigned Only Awards. Kris was the only UK act nominated in the category and, in fact, the only UK winner across all categories. Almost 6,000 tracks were submitted to the competition from over 100 countries so that is quite an achievement!
‘N.U.M.B’ has also been nominated as one of only 10 finalists in the ‘Best Unsigned Song’ category at the 2017 Unsigned Music Awards hosted by Best of British.
Kris has been playing bigger and bigger shows. He performed his first headline show at SONDER Music Festival and went on to perform at Sundown 2017.
Kris has big plans ahead including releasing more new music and exciting live performances.
