Let’s discover Melodic Canvas in 5 questions:

Welcome to our redaction, can you introduce yourself to our readers and tell us how you started to make music?

I am Evan Alderton. I am a 24-year-old musician from northern Michigan. I write, produce, and perform the instruments on all of my own recorded material. I got into music when I was about 14 when my older brother gifted me an electric guitar for my birthday. It immediately took off from there. I started writing my own music almost automatically before I even learned any covers of songs.

What inspires you to write and create music?

I am inspired by almost everything in life. Mainly the simple everyday circumstances we face as human beings. Who are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going? Why is the sky so vast? Those are the things I like to write about.

Do you have a specific creative process?

My creative process is rather simple. I write a riff, put a melody to the riff, and then the lyrics come last. I find it takes me several attempts to put it all together, but it is always a rewarding feeling when you have the finished song. 

Can you describe your latest releases to our readers?

Yes. I have my first full-length album coming out called “Sterile”. It has a lot of different styles intertwined within the album. from heavy grunge riffs to super quiet acoustic tracks. It is very much inspired by the 90’s era of rock music while having interesting and modern elements within the songs. I am really excited about releasing it.

What are your plans for the future?

I want to start to grow my audience. I want to move people with my music and have it affect them on a deep level. I am not really a surface level kind of musician. I want to go all-in on a project and have it last in the listeners’ ears even after the music stops playing. That’s the kind of music I hope to write in the future.
