Adriana Evans is truly a one of a kind artist, the likes of which have not been seen since Natalie Cole and Chaka Khan. She is the daughter of jazz recording artist Mary Stallings, who sang with Count Basie, Dizzie Gillespie and Cal Tjader. Adriana was raised in the Haight Ashbury and Mission District of San Francisco. Exposed early in life to the sounds of jazz, and blues by her mother and also the explosive sounds of Afro Cuban music from her father's culture , she was destined to be a musical sponge. Her love for soul, rock and hip hop added more to her rich musical tapestry.
