When off the road, Alan is the chief engineer and producer at Iron Wax Studios staying busy recording / mixing and producing a wide array of projects. The studio is also production headquarters for Vintage League Music.
Alan grew up in Buffalo, NY in the 1980’s. There were strong musical influences in Alan’s life from the very beginning. To say that the Evans family is musical is to say that the Kennedy family has a proclivity for politics. The record player spun in the Evans household the way the TV blared in many other homes. Alan’s father, Willie, and his older brother Rod played DJ and the assembly of vinyl they accrued was broad and vast. Miles Davis, Jimmy Smith, Ray Charles, Joe Cocker, Kool & the Gang, Jimi Hendrix, the Headhunters – these were just some of the sounds emanating out of the Evans living room.
“First and foremost, I am a music lover. There is nothing better than discovering and falling in love with a new song or album. Something that you put on repeat and listen to for hours, days, weeks. Music that transports you to another world, a place meant just for you. This is what drives me to make music and help others bring their music to fruition.”
