Darrell Evans is an evangelical Christian musician and songwriter, known primarily for his contributions to contemporary Christian worship. Influenced by the music of Bruce Springsteen and U2, his style of music is noted for its extensive use of free form composition, with several of his songs having been written spontaneously during concerts and worship times. Besides his music writing, he is an accomplished guitar player and singer.

Bio

Family

Darrell has five children. Daughter Leah, three sons Connor, Zachary and Grayson and daughter Makenzie. "They are my heart and world. My kids have changed my life for the better. I want to be the Godly father and leader that they need," Darrell said about his children.[this quote needs a citation]

Music and Ministry

Best known as the writer of songs like "Trading my Sorrows", "Let the River Flow", "Your Love is Extravagant", and "Freedom", and "Fields of grace", he is considered by many to be a pioneer in the modern worship music movement.
Darrell's ministry started as a teenager in Olympia, WA: playing spiritual music for classmates in his parent's home. He has served as a worship pastor for churches in Washington, California, Oklahoma and Texas.
For the past 17 years Darrell has traveled the world alone and with the band, combining music with worship, preaching, and prayer.
Darrell's projects "Let the River Flow" and "Freedom" both garnered Dove award nominations and influenced a new wave of congregational worship. His newest project, "Nothing Less Than Everything", wraps his joy, passion and experience in a fresh and powerful sound. In Darrell's words, "It's my prayer that the Lord will use these songs to help people connect with Jesus in a life-changing way".
