Ewan grew up in Kent playing cello and double bass. He moved to London in 2002 to study music at King’s College, where he returned in 2008 for his PhD, supervised by George Benjamin and Silvina Milstein. Between those spells in London Ewan achieved distinction in his MPhil at Cambridge University, and in 2012 was appointed as Composer-in-Residence with the Cambridge University Music Society. Ewan was an Associate Lecturer at King’s until 2015, and he now lives and works in Cambridge with his young family.

Ewan’s music has been awarded several international composition prizes including the New York-based Counterpoint Competition, the Forme uniche Competition in Adelaide and the Italian Mare Nostrum Competition. His works have been performed by ensembles and soloists including: London Symphony Orchestra, Britten Sinfonia, Küss Quartet, Fukio Ensemble, Lontano, Ensemble Matisse, Consortium 5, The Hermes Experiment, Mercury Quartet, Dr K Sextet, Anton Lukoszevieze, Gaby Bultmann, Thomas Gould and Clare Hammond.

As well as writing music for the concert hall Ewan has collaborated with various choreographers, filmmakers and theatre companies. Ewan is also active as a conductor and interdisciplinary events curator, and is currently working with the Dr K Sextet on the Pierrot Project, which nurtures collaborations between the visual and aural arts. Ewan also directs the Wilderness Orchestra which performs his orchestral arrangements of artists such as Radiohead, David Bowie and Nina Simone. They have performed with a number of soloists including Charlotte Church, Kate Nash, Laura Mvula, Shlomo, and Camille O’Sullivan at the Wilderness Festival.
