Born in Perth and raised in Singapore, Klar later spent a number of years in London as a session player and was soon crossing Europe on significant stages, including Glastonbury, Big Chill, and The Great Escape. Evan ultimately felt disconnected when playing other people's music and decided to return to Australia to reconnect with family and pursue his own projects.
He moved to Melbourne in 2012 and released his 2017 debut LP Deepest Creatures, delivering us singles Barefoot and Sleep which have so far gained him over 1 million streams and counting. Klar has an outstanding reputation for his engaging and energetic live performances and has support the likes of Confidence Man and The Jungle Giants.
Over the last two years, he has painstakingly established Fall Back Studios in Flemington, an inclusive songwriting hub where he has fostered a close-knit music community. Klar has collaborated with an impressive (and rather long) list of international and Australian artists in early 2020 we'll also hear works Evan has co-written and produced for Kate Miller-Heidke, Austen, Essie Holt, Marloe, Elenore and many more.
