Faculty Spotlight: Evan Marien

Published November 20, 2017 in Notes

If you were to tell me 5 years ago that SBL would soon become one of the world’s most interactive educational platforms for the bass guitar, I could never have imagined it. Our ever-expanding teaching faculty has allowed us to give you guys the kind of ongoing support and backing that you need to take your bass playing to the next level. And that’s why we’ve been working round the clock to bring you such a phenomenal series of monthly courses and experiences that I know you will truly want to spend time with. For us, the content we create for our academy members isn’t just about empowering you with a new set of skills; it’s a complete philosophy that informs everything we do. With that in mind, it’s time I introduced you to a brand-new faculty member who’s joining the SBL team… the incredible Evan Marien!

I’ve been keeping tabs on Evan ever since he was named as an ‘Exciting New Player’ in Bass Player Magazine’s 2009 Reader’s Choice Awards poll (he actually made the top 3 alongside Esperanza Spalding and Hadrien Feraud!)

Evan Marien: Faculty Performance Spotlight

Evan is both a hugely talented bass player and a fast-maturing solo artist whose latest release as EMAR embraces everything from dance to rock to ambient jazz and anthemic pop. In April 2017, Evan flew to Los Angeles and joined what would become Allan Holdsworth's last band and final tour.

I’m super excited to be releasing Evan’s new course into the SBL academy. You’re now going to be able to learn directly from Evan without leaving the comfort of your own home!
