A native of Washington DC, Evan Samuels began studying and performing music at a young age. Upon picking up the guitar, he delved into traditional music, blues, slide guitar, and fusion, eventually leading him to the language of jazz. Evan studied jazz with Chuck D’Aloia and John Nazarenko at Skidmore College, and was privileged to interact and learn from great visiting artists like Joshua Redman, Aaron Goldberg, Eric Harland, and John Scofield, as well as participate in the Skidmore Jazz Institute. In 2007 Evan earned Bachelor’s of Art in music and history. Now based in DC, Evan is a regular on the local jazz scene and performs across the metropolitan area as a side-man as well as leading his own combos playing a mix of straight-ahead jazz and multi-genre influenced fusion.
