Evan Brown is a guitarist, songwriter/composer and artist.
As guitarist and co-songwriter in the band Shaimus his music was featured in video games (“All Of This” on Guitar Hero, “Like a Fool” on Rock Band 2), TV shows (One Tree Hill, Ruby and the Rockits), and the 2011 film The Roommate, where he even made an Oscar-worthy onscreen appearance as “Band Member.” (The film debuted as the #1 movie in America, most likely due to his slightly out-of-focus performance.) In 2012, he launched his own music project called E8 (e8music.com). As a freelance guitarist he has played with Arielle Verinis (including a performance at the Long Beach Blues Festival), Jules Larson, and many other artists both live and in the studio.
Evan’s other musical projects include composing for video and radio. You can view a demo reel of some of his video scoring projects here. His instrumental guitar version of the Eagles Fight Song became a regular feature in his hometown of Philadelphia’s popular Preston & Steve morning show on WMMR. He created several presets that are included with Line 6′s POD Farm 2 software, and he also likes to have a little fun whenever possible, as evidenced by his song “Oh Veronica” written for the video How to Write a Love Song.
Outside of music, Evan writes and draws Of The Fittest, a webcomic featuring a self-aware dinosaur dealing with his impending demise by passing his wisdom on to the inferior species (homo sapien) that will inherit the Earth. He also writes his thoughts on life, art and the creative process in his blog.
Evan is endorsed by Music Man guitars. He lives in Los Angeles where he enjoys throwing a frisbee on the beach, reading non-fiction books, watching baseball and football, and attempting in vain to maintain a reasonable tan. He also helps to coordinate performance opportunities for Crescendo Young Musicians Guild.
