ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Official Soundtrack for a Crash Course on the Anatomy of Robots is a unique blend of Spoken Word, Rock, Trip-Hop and Jazz. Written and recorded live at On Studio in Guanajuato, Mexico, the album is a companion piece to the new novel by Kent Evans (KentWood, We're Not Vampires, Meitz). Kent performs the lyrics, electric and acoustic guitars, and composed the music. The album features the talents of Ramón Hernández (Barro Negro) on drums and bass, Michael Severens (Tom Petty, Donovan) on Cello, rocker Verena Elisabeth Wacker on additional voices, and trip-hop/dub-step production by Moisés Wonderlust King (We're Not Vampires, Quantum) and DJ Sujinho (Nossa).

Kent Evans is the author of Malas Ondas: Lime, Sand Sex and Salsa in the land of conquistadors, a semi-autobiographical novel about self-destruction throughout Latin America and finding that corniest of motivators – love. He was a fixture on the spoken word and experimental art scene throughout the 90’s, and the internationally acclaimed artist has performed at such venues as the Festival Internacional Cervantino, Madison Square Garden Theater, Acadamie Beaux Arts in Paris and Nuvorican Poets Café in Greenwich Village.

Kent has appeared on NPR for shows including Nuestra Palabra, the Front Row, and Living Arts showcase. His creative non-fiction and opinion pieces have appeared in numerous national pop-culture and literary zines and publications.

Kent is currently pursuing his artistic craft through music and fiction. His performance of choice involves gathering non-traditional musicians – DJ’s, classical players, Latin funk bands – and performing poetry in a live Jazz/Trip-Hop format.

His forthcoming novel A Crash Course on the Anatomy of Robots releases September 17, 2012 from Pangea Books.

Half Cantonese and half UK, Kent was born in New York City in 1975 and grew up between New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island. He graduated in psychology and dramatic literature from New York University, and began traveling extensively throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean. He fully expects to answer that “but where are you really from” question the rest of his life.
