PEOPLE

Don Martin

Don has been honing his audio skills since 1981. Don started his career at Soundtrek in Kansas City, and opened Evolution Audio in 1995, with partners John Blank, and his future wife Ginny. Evolution Audio bought the original Soundtrek building in 2017, a dream come true for Don, John and Ginny. Don still can’t believe that people actually pay him to play with toys. He plays the guitar and harmonica, although he would say, not very well.

Ginny Martin

Ginny has been a Recording Studio Manager since 1985. She also started at Soundtrek in Kansas City, before becoming a founding partner of Evolution Audio, along with Don and John. She is patient and kind, and determined to make sure everything is running smoothly at Evolution Audio. And she plays the piano, quite well. She and Don have been married since 1997. (God bless her soul)

John Blank

John started his audio career at Soundtrek in 1987, before teaming up with Don and Ginny to start Evolution Audio.
John tirelessly vies for perfection every time - he’s the standard by which all engineers at Evolution compare themselves. He also plays the clarinet, and is a pretty dang good guitar player.

Bryan Nelson

Bryan started his career at Evolution Audio in 2001. He has the same love for the sound business, and commitment to excellence that we all share.  
He loves Indie Rock, Classical Music, Jazz, Experimental stuff, and has a cautious respect for “Popular Music”.  He plays trumpet, guitar and bass.

Patrick Meagher

With over a decade of pro audio experience, Patrick has been with Evo since 2017, and is our Resident Music Composer.  
He loves all styles of music, plays guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, cello, trombone, and, of course, accordian.  He’s also an excellent sound designer.  It’s impossible not to like him.  Oh, and he has a degree in Psychology.  ( MFA in Sound Design too! )

Kate Zadoo

Our Assistant Studio Manager is the newest member of the Evolution Audio family.  Kate joined Evo in 2018, and has years of experience in the biz.   She has a very kind and gentle soul.
She’s confident, capable, and it’s very important to her that everyone who visits or works at Evolution Audio is happy.  
By the way, she is an excellent baker.  Really, she used to do it professionally.
