Musician Evan Carr Expresses How He Wants His Music To Help Others Struggling With Their Mental Health

Please introduce yourself, what you do, why you do it, and what you want people to know about you.

My name is Evan Carr. I’m a musician out of Dallas, TX. I just moved out to Nashville, TN, to release my 3rd single and debut album. My single “Change of Scenery” was released on November 19th of this year.

I’ve been in love with music my entire life, and it did not take long for me to realize the impact that I could have on the world. That realization put a lot of life into perspective, and I decided to take a step up and be an avid advocate for mental health.

I use my music, my lyrics, and my story to help articulate emotions and experiences that other people struggle to articulate. My goal is to make everybody know they’re not alone in their dark times. Time to fight the stigma attached to mental health!

What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?

My honesty. I didn’t grow up with any instruction on how to make music, it was therapy for me. I never had any songwriting lessons, singing lessons, etc. I just spoke my mind honestly and unapologetically, and thankfully the world listened.

Describe THAT moment when you realized you wanted to do what you do now. Who did you tell first? What has it been like since that moment? 

I have known since before I could even speak that I wanted to be a musician. I remember “writing” my first song (in which I actually just scribbled gibberish on a paper because I was too young to write) and running to my grandparents to show them.

They called my mom and had me sing to her over the phone. Since then it was set in stone.

What has been the biggest challenge you’ve had to face and how did you overcome it?

The fear of not being accepted. I’m very honest in my music, I open a window to my mind, and that can be a lot to see.

It’s absolutely terrifying to talk about depression, heartbreak, love, lust, happiness, anxiety, etc. and just to hope the world accepts you. I really feel that I have paved a difficult path.

If you had to pick the TOP 3 people you’d want to meet that could take your career (or business) to the next level…who would those 3 people be?

Without question, I would pick a band named “We Three”, Jon Bellion, and Brendon Urie. They have all been HUGE inspirations to me. I believe if I had an hour with any of them, we would be friends for life.
