Hello friend! Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to get to know me. I’m Evan, and I’m here to share practical lessons from my journey toward mastering Propellerhead Software’s Reason. I’ve been using the software since 2003 and have owned a lot of different versions of it.
Not only that, but I use it to produce professional music. So if someone tells you there’s a “Reason sound” that won’t get you results, I’d disagree and I’ll show you how to make Reason sound the way you want it to!
I’ve had songs included on NPR’s “All Thing Considered” and my clients range from independent content creators to massive companies, like Verizon.
A little about me
I wrote my first song when I was in 3rd grade.
It was called “Gerbils Like to Fly.”
Obviously, it was a hard act to follow!
I started on piano, but have since moved on mostly to guitar and bass. I studied music at Georgetown and have had the honor of playing with great musicians from bands like Cults, Delta Spirit, Handshakes, and Aaron Abernathy.
I started recording 20 years ago, first with a Tascam 424 record (it was a four-track recorder that used cassette tapes) and then with my bandmate’s 8 track digital recorder. We mostly were doing guitars, bass, vocals, and sampled drums. We didn’t have a lot of effects, didn’t have any monitors, knew nothing about EQ or compression (except that you were supposed to use it), and yet sometimes are mixes sounded really good.
In 2003 I got Reason 2.5. After a lot of fits and starts, fiddling around, mucking about, and general twiddling, I’ve acquired a very particular set of skills that I’m looking forward to sharing with you.
Thank you again for joining me! Drop me a line any time! I’m here to help however I can.
I can’t wait to see your inner gerbil fly.
