About Evan Handyside

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. In 2005, I vividly remember vacuuming my apartment. The television was on, and I stopped the vacuum to watch the Brokeback Mountain trailer (as the film was controversial at the time). The soundtrack music by Gustavo Santaolalla just blew me away. What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Gustavo Santaolalla, Brokeback Mountain (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) [Bonus Track] Herbert Grönemeyer, The American (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) Radiohead, The Bends The American is a meditative western. and the soundtrack by Herbert Gronemeyer is my all-time fav. Gustavo Santaolalla's Brokeback Mountain score changed the way I play guitar. The Bends; incredible songwriting, lacerating guitars. Love it Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Rain” I believe 'Rain' is the best song I've written. It's minimalist, and just moves seamlessly between the verse and chorus. Everything I've written since is only trying to capture the spirit of this one simple song.
