Maggie & Jackson Trio

Jackson Evans

Jackson Evans was born in northern Utah and began playing guitar at the age of twelve. He holds a BM from Utah State University where, as an undergraduate student, he was entrusted to teach beginning guitar courses and individual lessons. He has since maintained a private studio, conducted clinics at universities across the U.S. and is faculty at the Hilton Head Jazz Camp.

As a performer currently based in Savannah, Georgia, Jackson is an in-demand bandleader, composer, arranger and accompanist.  Tours with his own group have included appearances at The Bar Next Door in New York City and two residencies at jazz clubs in Mainland China.  He has traveled with artists such as Velvet Caravan and Colin Gilmore and is currently the guitarist for the Martin Lesch Band, which performs at the Jazz Corner in Hilton Head, South Carolina every Monday.  Jackson has also performed with jazz luminaries Nicki Parrott, Kate Baker, Quentin Baxter, Kevin Bales and Howard Paul and has been endorsing Benedetto guitars since 2009.  He has released three studio albums, two with his wife and frequent collaborator, Maggie Evans and one under his own name which was produced by and featured saxophonist Jody Espina

Maggie Evans

Born in Texas and raised in the mountains of Utah, Maggie Evans is a creative powerhouse. She was formally trained as a classical pianist, studied French horn in high school and discovered bass as a teenager in her brother’s punk band. She later added voice studies to the list while pursuing an MFA in painting at Savannah College of Art and Design where she is now an adjunct professor in foundations. Her obsession with Brazil and its music has been a key factor in shaping her sound-her voice is constantly compared to that of Astrud Gilberto. As a bassist she has worked with countless groups in many styles but Maggie specializes in the music of Latin America: Salsa, Latin Jazz, Bossa Nova, etc.

In addition to her work as a musician and teacher, Maggie has a career as a gallery artist. She holds the BFA in Illustration from Utah State University and an MFA in Painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design. For 2011-2012 she was awarded a position as a visiting scholar at the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China.
