No One Is to Blame
MERGING DANCE AND THE MAINSTEAM 'Smalltown Boy', Evan Cowden attended Boston's BERKLEE COLLEGE OF MUSIC after being awarded a scholarship for excellence in vocal performance. There he studied his craft along side such vocal talents as Layla Hathaway (daughter of reggae great Donnie Hathaway) and Grammy Award Winner Paula Cole. Strongly influenced by the post-modern/new-wave movements of the early 1980's, as well as blue eyed soul and pop heavyweights of the 1990's, Evan's inspired vocals have been compared to those of Jimmy Somerville, Andrew Bell, and George Michael. In addition to being praised for his vocal talents, Evan Cowden has emerged on to the dance music scene as one of it's brightest new production talents, lending his production/remixing skills to not one, but TWO of Klone Record's(a division of Rumour Records) largest compilation releases of 2007. Evan's remixes of Ernest Kohl's "To Save The Love 2007"(currently charting on the world nrg charts top 40 singles) and "Live Like You Were Dying" both appear on "Mad About the Boy Vol. 15" and the chart topping "Forever Country" compilations as well as Special Edition Compact Disc Maxi-Singles released on the WideAngle/EMG Record label. In a relatively short amount of time, Evan Cowden has managed to burst on to the music scene sharing production credits and being listed along side such industry greats as Steve Skinner (Broadway's Rent Soundtrack, Bette Midler), Julian Marsh (remixer on the grammy nominated "When Will You Learn" by Culture Club's Boy George as well as Kristine W, Taylor Dayne) and the legendary creator of disco and the 12"; Tom Moulton. Drawing from heavy synth/pop arrangements like those of Vince Clarke and the Pet Shop Boys, blending them with contemporary house and R&B flavor, Cowden has managed to maintain a strong sense of self while remaining reasonably true to a more conventional commercial POP sensibility. Now, Evan Cowden has teamed up with multi-platinum POP/ROCK producer Geza X (The Dead Kennedys, Josie Cotton, BlackFlag, Tyler Hilton and Merideth Brookes smash hit single 'Bitch')to create 'Evan Cowden: 10 days at Satellite Park'...a collection of original songs & dance/pop covers that represent his life long love of quality, commercial DANCE/POP tracks that resonate beyond the boundary of genre. Bringing together a team of the industries finest production/remix pro's, including: Julian Marsh (Kristine W., Taylor Dayne, Lonnie Gordon, and Boy George), Sweet Feet Music featuring Paul Brewer (Datura, Jeannie Tracy, Miss Pepper Mashay) and Leo Frappier (Megatone Records, Sylvester), The Perry Twins (Kristine W.), and NorthernBeat/UK (Nicki French, Rozalla), Evan Cowden and BOBD Productions, offer 10 incredible remixes of his brand new single "NO ONE IS TO BLAME"!
