Inigo Evans began playing bass in 1986 and guitar in 1988 – just in time to emit his first pinched harmonic before grunge took over and rendered anything squealing as tasteless. He played in cult rock bands with funny names such as “Mrs Whiterousers”. Despite the obvious commercial appeal, the big break didn’t come at that time. Jazz guitarists such as Django and Wes also came onto Evans’s radar after climbing through a toilet window to see Joe Pass perform in 1992 at Brecon Jazz Festival. A short audio engineering career running the sound for wedding bands ran in parallel to lifting a lot of road cases for the Princes and U2s of the world. It was around this time that Evans taught his first students (on bass.)
Music went on the back burner when Evans moved to Sydney, Australia in 1999. He started a family and founded and ran a successful Apple computer business. However, in 2011 non-Hodgkins lymphoma put a bump in his road and after treatment he sold the Apple business and moved with his family to the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.
Inigo Evans now teaches guitar, bass and music theory from his private studio and enjoys writing and recording original music and collaborating with other musicians.
