Advent welcomes new bassist, Evan Hause!

by Alan on March 17, 2020

It is a great pleasure to announce that Evan Hause has joined Advent. A very accomplished multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and versatile composer in his own right, Evan will fill the group’s bass chair (likely singing and eventually playing other instruments in the band as well). With his extensive and deeply compatible musical background, we’re confident that Evan will bring Advent’s new full-band lineup to a whole new level. Please join us in welcoming him aboard and stay tuned for great things!
