biography

Evan has been playing guitar since he was 6 and writing songs since he was 12. He has studied guitar, piano, and drums at the Niagara Rock Academy since 2010.

When he was 11 he played his first official gig in the lobby of local musician, Cory Cruise’s CD resease party and that is when he got the ‘performing bug’.

But it all started with a riveting performance of Born In The USA at his school’s Talent Show when he was 6!

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 Willie Nile, Joe Grushecky, Bobby Mahoney & The Seventh Son, Joe D’Urso, Southside Johny and the great Steve Earle. He has played patios, bars, theatres, open mics, festivals, churches, school gyms and more.

Evan recently released his first Vinyl 45 for his song "(If I Was A) Rockstar" and the B-Side "No Mother Should Have To". He's currently working on his first official CD with Mark and Myles Rogers at Impression Recording Studio in Niagara Falls.
