Kiley Evans is a Boston girl with a Nashville soul.
A former engineering student from a coastal town in MA, Kiley Evans never would have guessed that she'd be pursuing a career in music. After a few semesters of college, her deep-rooted passion for music caught fire and her true calling became apparent.
"I'd love to say that I'd always dreamt of becoming a pop-country artist, but it didn't really happen like that for me. My Dad's a mechanical engineer and is the person on this planet that I look up to the most. I guess I always thought I'd follow in his footsteps and get an engineering degree! When I look back, I wonder why I never considered anything else, but hey, when you're young, you're bound to wind up down the wrong road a time or two, right?" As luck would have it, Kiley's father sent her off to her freshman year of college with his old acoustic guitar, the same one that he had played back in his college days. "My Dad taught me a few chords on the guitar, and also taught me how to play "Blackbird" by the Beatles. Music was always around when I was a kid too; I grew up on 70's rock bands! I've always been a singer, and I also wrote poetry to get through my moody teenage high school days, so it was easy for me to combine those skills with my new guitar hobby. Music is the only thing that ever came easily to me." After a few semesters attending Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, MA and success in an original song contest hosted by CMT, Kiley left college and moved back home to pursue a career in music.
Kiley has won multiple awards including "Country Act of the Year" by the New England Music Awards and "Songwriter of the Year" by the Massachusetts Country Music Association. She has opened concerts for national acts including Tyler Farr, Scotty McCreery, Gary Allan, Chris Isaak, and more! She is currently living in Nashville, TN, and even though she is now pursuing a career as a pop-country artist, she is still an engineering nerd at heart. She sheepishly admits, "I have Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle bed sheets and I'm obsessed with Harry Potter. Oh, and I can solve a Rubik's Cube in under two minutes!"
