The Players

Founded in 2009, American Song Box harnesses theĀ original essence of sound and utilises the rhythm of life at seven beats per second to project a raw and uninhibited emotion that the human spirit is subconciously attracted to while adhering to the chemical responses of individual synapses that are connected to the invisible guidelines that animate and bind all things.

Chris Evans - Drums, Vocal

Chris is a classically trained percussionist, originally from northern Virginia  His initial focus was on keyboard percussion (xylophone, vibraphone) but shifted to the drum set as he began to play in garage bands during high school.  After moving to Florida for college, he picked up a djembe so he could continue drumming in the dorms where a full kit was not practical.  The djembe also provided Chris with an avenue to participate to the local Tampa open mic scene, where he met Todd and RJ.  Since then, Chris has been playing the drums and percussion for American Song Box.
