biography

It all started for Evan with a riveting performance of Bruce Springsteen’s “Born In The USA” at his school’s Talent Show when he was 6! When he was 11, he played his first official “gig” in the lobby of a local musician’s CD Release Party and that is when he got the ‘performing bug’.

Since then, Evan has had the honor of playing on the stage that Bruce Springsteen made famous, The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, New Jersey, several times! A dream come true for Evan, a life-long Springsteen fan!

Over the past several years Evan has opened shows for Honeymoon Suite, Wheatus, Willie Nile, Joe Grushecky, Bobby Mahoney & The Seventh Son, Joe D’Urso, Southside Johnny, and the great Steve Earle. He has played with Dave Rave, Rick Rose, Bobby Mahoney, Danny Gochnour (Houserockers) and Stephen Stanley (Lowest of the Low). He's played patios, bars, theatres, open mics, festivals, churches, school gyms and more.

In 2021 released his first Vinyl 45 for his song "(If I Was A) Rockstar" and the B-Side "No Mother Should Have To" and just recently released his first CD called “The Demo Tapes”, consisting of 12 original songs he wrote from the age of 12 to 16. He's currently working on his first official full band album with Mark and Myles Rogers at Impression Recording Studio in Niagara Falls called “Happy To Be Here”.
