Evan Runyon is a bassist, composer, arranger and producer based in Brooklyn, New York.

Founder/director of antiphonal rock band Real Loud, Evan is a noted soloist, collaborator and session player that has worked with The Knights, International Contemporary Ensemble, Metropolis Ensemble, Talea Ensemble, Urban Playground Chamber Orchestra, Contemporaneous and American Composers Orchestra. Composers with whom Evan has been privileged to work directly include Julia Wolfe, Rebecca Saunders, Brian Ferneyhough, Louis Andriessen and George Lewis, and he's performed and recorded with Wye Oak, Emily Wells, members of Eighth Blackbird and the Bang on a Can All-Stars.

Evan's principal mentor was Robert Black, with notable additional studies with Uli Fussenegger, Gregg August and Paul Ellison. He performs and records on all manner of early and modern acoustic and electric basses and has a significant body of recorded work on electric guitar.

A native of Tucson, Arizona, Evan is fond of esoteric drink, b-horror films and small animals. He lives in riverside Greenpoint, Brooklyn with his wife LeeAna Benson and their cats Jupiter and Eva.

Fwiw, his favorite bands are Liars, MMW and Suicide.
