ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born in Florida in 1979, Evan Hesse moved as a child to the alluring state of North Carolina. In this lush, natural setting, he found himself drawn to a musical, artistic life. His first instrument was the piano, which through study and fascination, became his favorite musical outlet by the age of 16. Having roles in Feature Films and acting also drew his passion. Living in the region of the Smoky Mountains, the very heartland of American traditional music, he grew up embraced by the strains of guitar and mandolin. Picking up a long neglected guitar of his father's one day, his first tentative efforts began an instant and lifelong love affair which defined his path. His college years were an immersion in the study of guitar music in all its forms, from Classical/Flamenco to modern Rock. Mentored in a world of guitar masters, captivated by the Spanish forms, he made them the hallmark of his own style and compositions.

At the age of 23 Evan headed west, where a one year sojourn in Tucson Arizona, led to the production of his first two albums "Trance" and "E Natural." The first is an exploration of the possibilities of keyboard and electronic compositions, while "E Natural" gave voice to Evan's guitar virtuosity and emergence as a lyricist. Here he also taught private lessons and performed in the night life.

Arriving in San Diego, working as a session guitarist and securing a properly equipped studio, Evan began the recording sessions which resulted in his latest and most widely acclaimed album, "Leucadia." The 10 tracks of this innovative collection of Spanish guitar pieces are awash with textures that evoke scenes of the early Californios and New Spain. All were wonderfully burnished by the contemporary musical perspective and compositions of this remarkably talented young guitarist. Learning software such as ProTools, his skills as a Producer and Engineer are fully evident in this album.

Evan is currently living in Los Angeles (Hollywood) composing, performing and arranging in his studio. He performs live at venues such as the historic Hotel Del Coronado and composes original music for Television and Film. His current work involves Audio Post Production, doing Engineering/Sound Design, and Composing for a Feature Film titled "Sparkling Sea." He's also doing work for Ira Opper (Four-Time Emmy Award Winner), Tony Tarantino (Four upcomming Feature Films), Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Tony Robbins Foundation (DVD Series), General Electric (GE Commercials), MAPP (Miss American Power Plus Pageant), and WCDI Unique Films (400 Mil. 10 movie slate). His company EHP (Evan Hesse Productions) also produces local rock bands and artists and has featured music on sports television networks such as FOX's Long Board TV.

Great Spanish guitar tunes! I can't stop listening to it!
I was browsing through CDBaby, and I came across Leucadia. I'm skeptical about buying CDs I've never heard, so I listened to the samples. I really liked what I heard, so I bought a copy. The entire CD is awesome! If you have any doubts about buying this CD, don't worry, it's worth the money!

Leucadia is simply fantastic and is a must have for anyone who enjoys great music, played by real musicians who have a true passion for their art.

I really enjoyed this CD!
The moods created by this artist are just phenominal. He captures the California landscape and atmosphere in a way I thought was never possible with music. It just blew me away! I can't wait until his next CD comes out.
