Artiestinformatie

Land   Verenigd Koninkrijk

Evans komt uit Airdrie, Schotland. Hij heeft zijn baan als postbode opgezegd, omdat zijn video’s op TikTok het zo goed doen dat hij inmiddels een platencontract heeft getekend bij Polydor Records. Wat maakt dat hij opvalt tussen al die andere TikTokkers, is dat hij een nieuwe virale rage is begonnen met zeemansliedjes. Zijn nummer Wellerman is een cover van de uit Bristol afkomstige groep The Longest Johns.

Songtekst

There once was a ship that put to sea
The name of the ship was the Billy Of Tea
The winds blew up, her bow dipped down
O, blow, my bully boys, blow

She had not been two weeks from shore
When down on her a right whale bore
The captain called all hands and swore
He'd take that whale in tow

Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go

Take our leave and go

Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go

Before the boat had hit the water
The whale's tail came up and caught her
All hands to the side, harpooned and fought her
When she dived down low

She had not been two weeks from shore
When down on her a right whale bore
The captain called all hands and swore
He'd take that whale in tow

Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go

Take our leave and go

Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go

Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
One day when the tonguin' is done
We'll take our leave and go

Take our leave and go
Take our leave and go
