During this time, Evan would work with a wide range of artists including the award-winning inventor, Ray Kurzweil and Brazilian world music artist Badi Assad. Later, Even moved on to serve as Staff Producer, Music Director, and Director of A&R for Bluefish Entertainment where he produced records for notable artists such as Michelle Featherstone, Merchants of Moonshine, and Ambrose. Evan would also begin composing music for large music production houses such as Killer Tracks and De Wolfe Music, UK.
Discovering a passion for teaching, Evan spent three years instructing audio production students at the Art Institute of California, Los Angeles.
