David Lyle Evans and Rancho Notorious

David Lyle Evans long music career began at 5 years old playing the piano.  He taught himself bass and six-string guitar after being inspired by The Beatles during his junior high years. He never had a lesson on the guitar, but his natural talent and dedication allowed him to excel.

His first band was called Tarwater, which he started at 22.  It had an 8 year run before Lyle played with Kip Ataway, a soul artist.

Lyle moved to Nashville in 1998 and played with the famous Chris LeDoux from 1999 until he passed away in 2005.  After his death, Lyle played for 12 years with the Western Underground. After playing with Pinto Bennet and the Famous Motel Cowboys, he started the Rancho Notorious Band.

Rancho Notorious In the Studio


Within the sanctum of the recording studio, a symphony of collaboration and innovation unfolds as musicians dive into the heart of the creative process. This space, buzzing with artistic energy, becomes a playground for reinvention, where the back and forth between band members and producers gives rise to an ever-evolving sonic landscape. The relentless pursuit of perfection, encapsulated by many retakes, propels the artists to push beyond their limits, refining each note and lyric until they meld seamlessly into the final composition.

Yet, the moments of rule-breaking, the audacious experiments that challenge conventional boundaries, often lead to the most memorable and groundbreaking masterpieces. Embracing the chaos of creation, musicians in the recording studio dance along the delicate balance between structure and spontaneity, crafting an auditory tapestry that resonates with the hearts of listeners.



David Lyle Evans and The Rancho Notorious Band is currently working on a new album due out this summer.  They'll be playing many of the songs at Oasis88.

These videos are a great insight into the creative process, and the exchange that happens between musicians.  In most of the footage you can see the reflection of the "coaches" in the studio.

One of the most touching is "Handful of Ashes" which is about Chris LeDoux's Son Beau paying tribute to his father.  Beau competed in the bareback riding competition at the Cheyenne Frontier Days rodeo in Wyoming in 2019.  His father won the same competition in 1976.

Beau carried a small bag of his father's ashes in his shirt pocket.  It was a way for him to feel his father's presence and honor his memory. When the ride ended, Beau spread a handful of the ashes on the arena floor.  Talk about the power of storytelling.

Michaela French

Michaela French possesses a voice that is an instrument of emotion that flows like a river with the ease of a gentle breeze. Her tone is rich and full, resonating with a warm, velvety timbre that caresses the soul. Her phrasing is nuanced and expressive, imbuing each line with a sense of intimacy and depth.

Her voice bears similarities to the breathy vulnerability of Lana Del Rey, the emotional intensity of Florence Welch, and there are moments where her vocal tone and phrasing also bring to mind the ethereal quality of Enya.
