first 'proper' kit at just three years old!
His earliest influence was Ringo Starr and his Ludwig drums. He is a
founding member of The Strypes.

They have released two albums, the first a top 5 UK chart entry and the second a number one in their home country of Ireland.

Evan has a hard hitting rock'n'roll style and cites Terry Williams (Rockpile, Dire Straits), Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello & The Attractions) and Gilson Lavis (Squeeze, Jools Holland) as his favourite drummers. Evan plays Ludwig Keystone drums.
