Evan Sinton (MAALA) Singer

If you weren't a musician, what would you have been?
I don't know... As long as I am able to continue to be creative in some way it's good. Otherwise I'd go crazy. I should have had a plan B but I did not...

What was your first ever stage performance like?
I never thought I was a good singer, I was terribly nervous. The first time I performed in front of an audience was in high school with a dorky little band. The audience responded well though.

What are your hobbies?
I'm into music full-time, otherwise I'm a really boring person (laughs). But I used to play tennis a little bit, and I also love watching cricket... I should definitely take up some more hobbies...

What has been the lowest point in your life?
A couple of years ago, I was in Auckland, where my car got broken into and all my music gear was stolen. I got fired from my job, so things were a little grim.

What was the highest point in your life?
Being able to travel with music and winning a music award at the 'New Zealand's Got Talent' was an incredible feeling. I am really lucky and grateful for that.

What is your idea of an deal weekend?
Probably, playing cricket and some whisky...

Favourtie singer: Robert Plant
