Outstanding live performances drive great music. This is EverShine's philosophy and theirs is a tightly woven sound that has been rocking out for nearly a decade. They've been paying dues in live music venues where fans flock to see their beyond energetic, commanding stage performances. Collaborative efforts include every member bringing their individual, diverse, aesthetic to the table, helping to solidify the band's unique style and unity.
Their resume speaks for itself. EverShine has been the featured artist on several Northern Michigan fm radio stations: 97.5 WKLT, 104.5 The BOB FM, 98.1 The Bear, 95.5 Real Rock. The group has shared the stage as the opening act for Jackyl and FireHouse, Saving Abel and all female rockers Kittie. The group has hosted after parties for SevenDust, Seether, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Adelita's Way & Saving Abel.
Rick Coates (Contributing Editor) of the Northern Express said "EverShine is a really great band. I've seen them several times and if you ever get a chance to see them live, do it!"
Not only has this foursome competed in a state-wide battle of the bands called "Rock Your Way To The Top" (created by Turtle Creek & Leelanau Sands Casino & Joey Callahan of 13mg), but industry insiders like Mark Farner of Grand Funk Rail Road who judged the group through the preliminary and finale commented "Damn nice and great." Martin Atkins of Nine Inch Nails exclaimed "Great hooks & live energy". Terri Ray (Program Director) of 97.5 WKLT fm radio station said " You own the stage! I LOVE the songs!" and Grammy Award winning producer Howie Beno gave them a perfect 40/40 score and succinctly described them in one word: "Excellent"
This conscientious group of Michigan residents believe in giving back to their community. 2009 & 2012 saw EverShine performing in many charity concerts aimed to raise awareness and aid for several families & Michigan NonProfits. Their goal is to continue to lend their talents whenever possible to impact change.
When not on stage performing and doing charity work, EverShine found time in the studio with Howie Beno to forge their debut album, "The Core" released April 2010. The group set about creating a new look and sculpting a newly refined sound which he describes as "Smoky backroom bluesy vocals set against an undeniable hard driving force of rhythm and guitars."
EverShine's main focus has been on EXPANDING and writing material and creating videos for the next album! The group has been working on a second full length cd with Howie Beno. They are proud to release a 4 song EP called "Rise Above" released 11/2013. With part of the proceeds to help Northern Michigan Veteran's through the local NonProfit - Angel Ambassadors. http://www.angel-ambassadors.org
