Meet James and Evander

By Barbara Szabo

James and Evander is a band from Oakland, California. The two members Adam Myatt and Glenn Jackson met in a college that is not to be named, because they feel that the tuition was too expensive for what the curriculum had to offer. There was, however, one positive outcome of the college experience: meeting one another.

The duo has been making music together since 2006. In this interview they talk about aspiring to be on Alicia Keys’ level, drawing inspiration from hip-hop and the difference between their DJ and live band performance experience.
