Evans, David J
Author & Composer
b Dartford, Kent 1957; except for two years in Maryland, USA, he lived most of his early life in Winchester. He graduated in Social Science (BSc) from the Univ of Southampton, a city where he continues to live, in Shirley. As well as composing, he works in the field of music education and is currently undertaking PhD research into the psychology of music. He has been involved in a variety of church denominations, both modern and traditional, and has written and composed some 50 items (largely unpublished and ‘mainly out of my own life’s experience’—DJE), one of which has far outstripped the rest and indeed most other contemporary worship songs in popularity. He also yearns to write (and play and sing) what is authentic rather than merely derivative or superficial. No.566.
