Inigo Evans began his journey touring with a BMX freestyle team in Wales, and then playing bass, guitar and/or vocals in cult UK rock groups with names such as “Mrs Whitetrousers”. Despite the obvious commercial appeal, the big break didn’t come at that time. Jazz guitarists 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 he taught his first students (on bass.)
Music went on the back burner when Evans moved to Sydney, Australia in 1999. He founded and ran a successful Apple computer business. However, in 2011 a diagnosis of non-Hodgkins lymphoma stopped him in his tracks. This required lengthy treatment, and also caused Evans to re-evaluate his life direction. 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 home studio and enjoys writing and recording original music and collaborating with other musicians.
