Cinemasters provides master quality recordings of original songs and source music to the Film & Television industry. Producer Joel Evans has had over 300 song placements including numerous hit TV series episodes and more than 60 Motion Pictures. Dan Kimpel writes in Music Connection Magazine: Meet Joel Evans, a musician and bandleader from San Francisco whose extensive list of credits includes major Hollywood films, hip indie flicks, network shows and daytime dramas, over 60 big screen credits and 250 television episodes and counting, from Wedding Crashers to Desperate Housewives. Evans has built his own catalog, and he has also worked extensively with companies that place songs: Position Music, PEN Music Group, TAXI and many other firms. His first big break in visual media came when he met Marc Ferrari of MasterSource at a pitch session sponsored by the West Coast Songwriters Association. As he recalls, "It turned out to be a bossa nova thing I played for Marc and he included it in his catalog." When a composer disappeared from a project that needed tracks within a week, Ferrari enlisted Evans. "He sent me a few things to listen to and I got them down with five players, and they've since been used a number of times." In configuring music, Evans will generally take live players into a studio, track the basics, then return to his home studio to edit, overdub vocals, guitars, piano and other instruments before returning to the original studio to give the tracks the requisite Polish. He often e-mails MP3s back and forth with collaborators, and he also enjoys writing with an actual collaborator in the room as well. Among his key co-writers are Nashville-based Lisa Aschmann and pop/theatrical writer Adryan Russ. Evans' Hollywood-sophisticated melodies are often used on screen to evoke sumptuous surroundings like hotel lobbies and upscale restaurants, so it's no coincidence that Evans spent many years performing in just these types of venues as a live player. Swing, big band and jazz: he occupies a decided stylistic niche. "I can't do everything. I don't write stuff that's like what's on the radio. I decided early on to hell with it, I'm going to do stuff that I love." Song info: 1.
