In Conversation with Evan Marien – Fusion Grooves

Full video available to Academy members »

About This Episode

In today’s podcast we catch up with the extraordinary talented Evan Marien.

Evan first emerged as a force to be reckoned with with his duo recordings that featured drummer Dana Hawkins. About to hit the road with guitar legend Allan Holdsworth, his latest solo EP builds on his flexibility as both accompanist and soloist. In fact, Evan’s solo prowess is little short of awe-inspiring, particularly when playing his Ken Smith 5-string, but for all his speed (and he’s one of the fastest around), his ideas remain crystal clear. “I listen to a lot of different types of music and I love bass players of all styles,” said Evan. “But there’s obviously a heavy fusion influence in my own music and in my own playing.” If you're a member at ScottsBassLessons you can look out for a brand-new course from Evan coming very soon.

In this episode you're going to learn:

  • All about Evan’s bass gear and his approach to composition
  • How he’s been preparing for the upcoming shows with Allan Holdsworth
  • About Evan’s new course for SBL
  • And much, much more…
