Evan Craft Biography
With the coming release of Yo Soy Segundo (I Am Second), Craft has worked day and night preparing one of his most anticipated feats yet. This album intends to leap the hurdles of language and reach out to the Spanish speakers of America and Latin America with a more in-depth worship of God. Whereas Giants was more pop/rock, Yo Soy Segundo features more soulful that is worship based and melody driven, making it easy for the audience to sing along and relate to.
With a greater goal in mind, Craft explains that there is more at work than the eye sees. “My goal for this album is to be more than a singer and a songwriter. My job is to lift God’s name on high for the people and let Him take care of the rest. I am just a tool for God, a resounding trumpet, a lighter for Him the Almighty.”
Craft’s deep faith helped him rely on God’s help to choose the best songs that would have the greatest impact on the listener. At times, he would wake up in the middle of the night with an incredible vision or melody of the music he wanted and he would immediately set to writing the music.
One of the songs on the album that speaks to Craft the most is “Dame Fe” (Give Me Faith). Craft wrote this with a personal and relatable meaning of – “Give me faith to trust in God in the hardest times so that I can trust Him and so that He can guide me.” Lyrically driven and acoustically satisfying, Dame Fe and the title track “Yo Soy Segundo” can both be found on the Dream Records artist page or on his YouTube page atwww.youtube.com/EvanCraftMusic. Both songs have an amazing and very catchy beat to them sure to draw in any listener regardless of their understanding of Spanish.
This proves to show that Craft’s music is universal. Despite the language difference, the music itself will draw the listener to God. It will make the listener want to look up the lyrics bringing those from different languages closer to one another unified in ONE FAITH through the amazing hand of God. Craft’s artistic vision is a vision of “Love Thy Neighbor,” relating to the US and Latin American relationship pushing both cultures to work together and love one another.
After the release of the album, Craft plans to tour the Border States and Latin America for six weeks spreading the love of God to more than just the people of America, unifying those from different cultural backgrounds under one Love, under one God.
Evan Craft won’t be done with his work after this record, so keep an ear out for more albums to come that may feature both English and Spanish lyrics from this rising star.”
