Evan Evans’ score for The Poker Club is a very dark and sensual score which recalls the sound of Jerry Goldsmith’s film noir excursions, and its elegant ‘under-your-skin’ qualities may remind some listeners of Howard Shore’s finest scores. The Poker Club, which was released on DVD in the US on April 21, is a dark thriller starring Johnathon Schaech, Judy Reyes and Johnny Messner. It tells the story about four friends whose weekly poker night turns into a nightmare when they discover and accidentally kill a burglar.

Young composer Evan Evans, who is the son of legendary jazz icon Bill Evans, has crafted a score which effectively combines a live orchestra with electronic elements, with low brass clusters, sustained misterioso string writing and a sophisticated main theme at its core.
