Evan Evans, a child prodigy, has been scoring professionally since the age of 12, chalking up over 60 Feature Film Scores, after working in the TV, Radio, and Commercial industries. He is known for his rich and complex scores of polytonal soundscapes and orchestral color shapes that penetrate viscerally for even more dramatic effect than his predecessors. Recalling the prowess of Jerry Goldsmith(“Basic Instinct”,”The Omen”,”Rambo”,”Total Recall”) and the rebelliousness of Bernard Herrmann(“Psycho”,”Vertigo”,”Citizen Kane”,”Taxi Driver”), Evans continues that legacy of innovation, now into the 21st Century, conquering new frontiers of emotional communication in film.

Evans studied music theory privately since the age of six, and attended University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) at age seventeen. At the Nadia Boulanger Institute in Paris he shared pedagogy with Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, and Elliot Goldenthal. He apprenticed with groundbreaking Argentinian film composer Lalo Schifrin (“Mission Impossible”), veteran TV composer Don Ray (“Twilight Zone”), top-notch orchestrator Steven Scott Smalley (“Batman”), leading harmony specialist and arranger Clare Fischer (Michael Jackson), and music editor Joseph E. Rand (“Titanic”).

He is the son of legendary Jazz artist Bill Evans, who is known for re-inventing jazz in the 50s and 60s, bringing his conception of what’s known today as “the cool sound” to Miles Davis on their collaborative seminal album “Kind Of Blue”.

Evan has worked on numerous star powered films, racking up credits starring Christina Ricci, Martin Sheen, Danny Trejo, David Carradine, Dennis Hopper, Tom Berenger, Norman Reedus, Jonathan Schaech, Michael Madsen, C. Thomas Howell, Wil Wheaton, Rebecca De Mornay, Eric Roberts, Robert Carradine, Judy Reyes, Adrian Paul, Michael Rooker, Udo Kier, John Ritter, Rachel Hunter, Judge Reinhold, Steven Bauer, Louis Mandylor, Billy Drago, Karen Black, Mark Rolston, John Saxon, and Robert Culp.

His award winning approaches have made rounds at the worlds most respected art film festivals, including The Sundance Film Festival.
