J. Isaiah Evans is a native of Dallas, Texas best known as the founder and front man of roots rock and roll band, The 40 Acre Mule. Following the critical and commercial success of The 40 Acre Mule’s Goodnight & Good Luck (State Fair Records, 2019), the band set out on an extensive touring schedule. Known for loud, high energy live shows, The 40 Acre Mule gained a devout following with fans all over the world. But there’s always room for something different. Enter J. Isaiah Evans & The Boss Tweed! A fan of organ driven bands such as Booker T. and the M.G.’s and the Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio, he’s forged a new path with a band that puts keys front and center of Americana rock creating what he calls "Garageicana Rock-N-Roll".

“It’s an opportunity to try new sounds on some old favorites as well as explore new music with artists that I’ve always wanted to work with. I want to take Americana and blues and soul and garage rock and make it into something unique. I’m excited for people to get to know this new project.”- J. Isaiah Evans 

With Spud Crowley on drums and Matthew Vasquez on keys, the trio debuted by opening for one of Texas’ favorite sons, Alejandro Escovedo, at a sold-out Kessler Theater. This was quickly followed by supporting slots for Jason Boland & The Stragglers, Silverada (formerly) Mike & the Moonpies, Messer Chups and Dave Alvin and The Third Mind with more tour dates on the horizon. The debut single, a rockin’ cover of Mel McDaniel’s “Stand Up”, is streaming on all platforms with a full-length album coming soon!
