The creative forces behind Summer Child, Evan apRoberts and Melissa Louise Castellano, started playing music together when they met in Los Angeles in 2009. Initially they played live shows under the name The Evan apRoberts Band, frequently joined by Trevor Beld Jimenez (Tall Tales and the Silver Lining), Edgar Acosta (minor me) and Bryan Martin (Cotton Jones), supporting Evan's 2009 solo record "Under the Ghost".

In 2015, joined by Scott Kinnebrew of Truth & Salvage Co. on bass, apRoberts and Castellano began playing out as Summer Child, performing a mixture of new unreleased material and some fresh interpretations of tracks from Evan apRoberts' solo record. Summer Child is currently finishing up mixing tracks for their first release, due out Fall 2015.

In addition to Summer Child, Castellano and apRoberts are both members of the Los Angeles band, Tall Tales and the Silver Lining. Evan has also performed with other west coast and international bands, playing guitar or bass for bands including Little Wings, Joel Jerome, Seth Pettersen, Kings of Convenience, Port O'Brien and Jeff Grimes.
