Evan Runyon is an acoustic and electric bassist, composer, arranger and producer based in Brooklyn, New York whose work has been called “quirky, interesting” (Milford Independent), “very loud” and "unlikely to be well-received” (New York Times).

Evan is artistic director of antiphonal rock band Real Loud and a member of ensemble mise-en. He has been a guest with Talea Ensemble, the American Composers Orchestra and Contemporaneous and a featured performer at the Look & Listen (New York), Philadelphia Fringe, Gaida (Lithuania), Arena (Latvia) and Sound of Stockholm (Sweden) festivals, the Dither Extravaganza and Bang on a Can Marathon. As both soloist and collaborator, Evan has been privileged to work directly with such composers as Julia Wolfe, Beat Furrer, Rebecca Saunders, Louis Andriessen and George Lewis in the realization of their work.

His principal mentors have been Robert Black and Louis Levitt, additional study with Uli Fusseneggar, Ira Gold and Shawn Conley, amidst many others.

Evan is a native of Tucson, Arizona. He finds biographies tiresome but is fond of unusual liquors, bicycles and cats. He lives in Greenpoint.
