Bastian Evans started playing guitar and singing back- up for his first band, The Helmets, in his garage at 8 years old. By 10 the SoCal guitar-player, singer-songwriter had played two Lollapaloozas [with a Music Man Albert Lee]. Now at 15, he fronts The Alive and has played Lollapalooza Chile three times, Lolla Chicago, Lolla Argentina, Aus$n City Limits, Eddie Vedder’s Ohana Fest, Kelly Slater’s WSL Founder’s Cup, SMF Spain, Boardmasters England, and opened BoTleRock Napa’s main stage for RHCP, Foo Fighters and The Killers. Bastian has jammed on stage with Perry Farrell, Tre Cool, Gregg BissoneTe, Drew Hester, John “Lou” Lousteau, Brent Woods, Wiley Hodgden, Donovan Frankenreiter, Ron Ar$s II, Robert Trujillo, and Taylor Hawkins with his band Chevy Metal. When The Alive’s 2020 Lollapalooza Chile, Shaky Knees, BoTleRock and Japan dates were postponed due to Covid, the boys got busy recording and mixing new originals set to be released later this year. Writing and recording has been amazing but Bastian can’t wait to get back to playing live. His Music Man Albert Lee, JP and Mariposa are his go-to guitars for recording and playing live.
