Rising film composer Evan Wilson is lending his distinctive musical talents to an increasing number of today’s independent films. Concerned with the mediocrity in much of current film music, Evan is intent on writing high-quality music capable of elevating a movie to new heights. His focused approach to crafting new music has made him a sought-after composer by many talented directors and producers.

Recently, the composer was praised for his score to the movie La Soga (2009 Toronto International Film Festival), winning an award for best music in a feature film at the 2010 Oaxaca International Film Festival. Other highlights include: Forged (2010 NYILFF and 2010 LALIFF), A Kiss of Chaos, a Latino thriller (2009 American Black Film Festival and 2009 NYILFF); Salvage, (2006 Sundance Film Festival) available internationally at all major retailers; Tryst, released by Maverick Entertainment; and Rise of the Dead, released by Lion’s Gate. His music has been featured in commercials for Crayola and for trailers for ParaNorman, by Laika Studios.

In addition to scoring for film, Evan writes and performs songs to share with people throughout the world. He just released an EP, “The Still Point,” which has been featured on Noisevox, Facebook, and websites around the world.

Evan graduated with a Bachelor’s of Music from the Oberlin Conservatory and went on to do additional course work at the Juilliard School. He is a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers (ASCAP).
