Hi beautiful people!
I hope all is well and everybody is ready for the holiday spirit!!! Christmas is coming, eh? So quick this year has gone by…but I have some amazing new interviews coming until the end of the year.
I had the pleasure of talking with Evan and manage to sneak out some answers from the questions you guys asked me. As you know, Evan Gamble is an actor, writer, and musician. He is known for Hap and Leonard (2016), Fear the Walking Dead (2015) and The Vampire Diaries (2009), American Sniper (2014) with Bradley Cooper. Besides his acting career, he is a very talented musician and he plays very well.
He is coming to London for the Worlds Collide Con that is managed by Passion for Talent. You can get tickets to see Evan at https://www.worldscollidecon.com/
Let’s see what Evan had to say:
Andreea: When and why did you start playing?
Evan: I started playing guitar at age 13 because my best friend started learning and I wanted to be like him.
Andreea: Which instruments do you play?
Evan: I can get by on the piano. But my main instrument is the guitar.
Andreea: What was the first tune(s) you learned?
Evan: The first songs I ever learned were Nirvana songs. All of the tunes off of their NEVERMIND album. I can’t remember which one I learned first though…
Andreea: What are the five things you can’t live without?
Evan: I can’t live without my WIFE AND FAMILY, COFFEE, MOVIES, SPORTS, and PIZZA.
Andreea: What’s your motto or the advice you live by?
Evan: Take life one day at a time. Don’t worry about yesterday or tomorrow. Focus on the here and now. Be present.
Andreea: Which famous musicians do you admire? Why?
Evan: I admire Dave Grohl because of his longevity, positive attitude, and constant creative drive. Oh and how hard he hits the drums.
Andreea: Ten years from now you will be….
Evan: Hopefully in ten years, I’ll be alive and happy. And still making music, acting, and writing screenplays.
Andreea: Can you remember the first time you wrote a song?
Evan: I’ve always been coming up with little songs in my head and on piano, but when I first started playing guitar, it started to ‘click’ in a new way. I can’t remember the first song I wrote, but I do remember how exciting it was around the time I first started playing guitar and coming up with guitar-based songs.
Andreea: Do you ever get nervous?
Evan: I get nervous all the time. Before an audition. Before a social event. Before a live performance. For me, it’s about accepting that I get nervous and not trying to fight it.
Andreea: What kind of things inspires you to write?
Evan: I get most of my good ideas when I’m running outside or on the treadmill. Or just after I’ve woken up in the morning. Oh and coffee inspires me to write too.
Andreea: What’s your favorite place to eat?
Evan: My favorite place to eat is anywhere that sells pizza in Manhattan.
Andreea: Do you have any pets?
Evan: I have four pets. Two dogs and two cats. They are my furry children.
Andreea: What’s your bad quality?
Evan: I get bad anxiety, and sometimes it makes me lose my cool. I have a hard time staying calm and patient.
Andreea: How much do you practice singing/playing instruments a week?
Evan: I practice playing guitar two or three times a week.
Andreea: What’s next?
Evan: I have a new EP coming out in the very near future called COLDWATER CANYON VOL. 2. And I’ll be releasing other random new music here and there on my youtube and Soundcloud.

Lot’s of love,
