Bio

Evan has performed at jazz clubs and private parties throughout the northwest. He's featured regularly in the Piano Starts Here series, curated in partnership with KNKX radio. Past performances include The Pink Door, Royal Room, Vito's, and Hotel Sorrento.

When performing with a trio, Evan regularly features Cornish and UW Jazz school students, and many local legends - keeping close to the heart and tradition of Seattle music lineage.

Evan currently accompanies ballet classes at the Pacific Northwest Ballet School, and has also worked with Evergreen City Ballet and Spectrum Dance Theater. He feels inspired to help teachers give students skills to dance to their fullest potential.

His piano influences include energetic players like Ahmad Jamal, Dave Brubeck, Vince Guaraldi, Thelonious Monk, and Bud Powell.
