Evans’s entry into film scoring was forged by the 1960s’-70s’ music of John Barry and Ennio Morricone. His first concept album of pop ballads: The Lunatic, the Lover & the Poet with lyrics by John Porter, under the duo name: After Magritte is currently streaming (October, 2022).

He works between London and the vintage La.M.P. recording studio, near La Rochelle, France.
