Ae3 (Alan Evans Trio) - The Wild Root (LP)

Ships In 1-2 days - Available for In-Store Pick Up
Founded by Soulive member, writer and drummer of over 15 years Alan Evans, the Ae3 (aka Alan Evans Trio), is a power funk/soul organ trio consisting of Alan Evans, Danny Mayer (Eric Krasno Band) and Kris Yunker (Jen Durkin and the Business) and is undeniably special. 

Evans, Mayer and Yunker have spent years individually and collectively touring the world bringing the soulful music they love to a captive audience. Each of these musicians are true artists who have bold and confident voices yet they create one massive sound together that is truly their own. 

The trio’s sound proves hard-driving and groovy with deep, funky melodies and powerful, rhythmic counterplay. Ae3 opens a window into another side – an emotional introspection, as dark as it is powerful. Their passionate progressions emanate an electrified, smoky, 70s-era CTI Records zeitgeist. Mention the name Alan Evans to a room full of music lovers, and you will get a consensus nod at one of the most celebrated and tenacious drummers in the jazz, funk, and soul scene. A producer, recording engineer, guitarist, percussionist, vocalist and writer, Alan‘s repertoire of skills have been perfected with more than a decade of dedication. 

As Ae3, the outfit has two albums under their belt: their debut “Drop Hop” released on Royal Family Records in 2012 and follow-up “Merkaba” in 2013. 2019 will see the release of “The Wild Root”, the first new album from Ae3 in five years. This new album certainly shows the growth of each member and thus, Ae3.
