Born in Chicago, Illinois on April 19, 1967, (Aries/Taurus) Pierre Andre’ Evans is an innovative singer/songwriter. A native of Chicago, Playerre has always been surrounded by music. “As a child, I was always around music. My mother, who’s a classically trained pianist, could always be found playing the piano in the dining room. She never forced me to play, but encouraged me when I did. I’ve always played by ear. My father was a DJ and a singer and led many singing groups in his youth. My brother introduced me to DJ’ing when I was a teenager, in the early 80’s. I was bitten by the music bug at birth,” says Playerre.
Since then, Playerre has performed at numerous venues throughout the Chicagoland area including the New Regal Theater, the South Shore Cultural Center, aboard the Spirit of Chicago cruise ship, Navy Pier, the House of Blues Chicago, Ole Lounge and the Checkerboard Lounge. Upcoming events include “Showtime in Chicago” talent showcase at IIT and a performance at the Victor Hotel Chicago.
“AVALANCHE!” his debut mini CD, will debut in the Fall of 2010. The CD is a collection of Neo Soul, R&B and Chicago’s very own Steppin’ music. The first single “GUARANTEED LOVE" is a sexy, smooth, sultry, infectious Steppin cut that conveys the desire for true, genuine, everlasting love. “It’s a desire that we all wish for,” says Playerre. “WEIGH ME DOWN” is a groovin’ Neo Soul jam that celebrates a woman’s self respect, confidence and independence, as this excerpt from the lyrics shows, “I ain’t tryin’ to clown, but ain’t nobody weighin’ me down!” “FANTASY” is a late night, quiet storm, love making R&B groove. This is exemplified by the following lyric “Baby girl, wanna see your body wet…yes….uh huh.” Playerre jokingly quips, “Plenty of babies will be made from this cut.”
