Born 10 weeks early in Baltimore, Maryland, Evan Nachimson was never supposed to make it past a couple weeks. Spending his first few weeks of waking life in an incubator, he was shielded from physical touch. It’s no wonder he has spent his life's work depending on his ears. At 16, Evan began attending Berklee College of Music. He created music with future-famous artists and respected musicians like The Pocket Queen, and dormitory neighbor, Charlie Puth.
In 2017 the self-produced QUESTIONS, and collaborative QUESTIONS (RE-ENVISIONED) were released. NIGHT FALLS FAST produced by GRAMMY Award Winner Fernando Lodeiro (Esperanza Spalding) followed teaming up with a band of his best friends (C-BASS and James Quinlan of Sammy Rae & The Friends, Ronnie Lanzilotta of Evolfo and future producer Cale Hawkins). The EPs included songs like Take Me As I Am which explored his turbulent battle with depression. Unfortunately, a death in his family, and a turbulent break-up sent him back into a depressive relapse and marred his ability to promote and tour the records.
During COVID he began writing and directing an audio-series, the first fictional episodic series of its kind featuring EMMY and TONY Winner Billy Crudup. The series is set to release behind a bed of new music produced by long-time collaborator, Cale Hawkins in 2022. Self-funded, fiercely independent, and wildly imaginative, Evan Nachimson continues to innovate and create despite whatever challenges are thrown his way.
