Evan grew up immersing himself in American and English folk music.

Since 2012, Evan has been writing, recording and performing his own music. One night, Ryan Boldt, of the Deep Dark Woods, stumbled upon one of Evan's performances, and the two bonded over shared musical chemistry. Since then, it blossomed into a great friendship, and musical venture. Together, they recorded and produced Evan's latest album Chasing Shadows. Other musicians included on Chasing Shadows: The Deep Dark Woods longtime Organist Geoff Hilhorst; Keenan Mittag-Degala on Drums; Maria Grigoryeva on Violin & Viola; Lyudmila Kadyrbaeva Cello; Jayne Trimble on Backing Vocals. The sound of Chasing Shadows has echoes of Psychedelic Folk, Country Blues and English Ballads while retaining a distinct originality of it’s own.

Evan has now joined The Deep Dark Woods, since the reformation in the Spring of 2017, as the lead guitarist and toured around Europe, Canada and the United States.

“Cheadle’s intricate guitar picking and delicate vocals instantly transport listeners to a diverse musical world inhabited by the likes of Bert Jansch, Nick Drake and Harry Nilsson, all-the-while avoiding nostalgia’s tepid waters; Cheadle, it seems, stands outside of time.”

“Chasing Shadows... it’s a rather special treasure if you have any interest towards things like psychedelic folk and baroque pop”
