It all started Christmas 1997. It was just a normal holiday
at the Ross house until 9 year old Julia announced to her sisters Sarah and
Amber they were going to start a band. They had been singing together around
the house for years, and there was an obvious natural talent among the three
sisters. And since that day, the girls of Everlife have worked to develop
their passion - writing music, perfecting their instruments, learning harmony
and theory and preparing spiritually for the road ahead. When you have a
calling, you just have to jump into it full force.
It wasnt long before Everlife's fresh pop/rock sound and
natural songwriting talents caught the ear of SHELTERecords. Amber, Sarah
and Julia had recently moved to Nashville and quickly they were on the radar
of many of the major labels in the area. Their work ethic and passion for
ministry couldn't be denied, and were directly in line with how SHELTERecords
as a label is structured. It was obviously a perfect fit, and Everlife decided
to sign with the label.
Under the guidance of producer Kevan Cyka (Lifehouse,
R.E.M., Gin Blossoms, Hillary Duff, Jump 5) and Dan Needham (Stacie Orrico,
Steven Curtis Chapman), Everlife is excelling in the studio. Cyka's
multi-platinum songwriting/publishing history, combined with Needham's studio
prowess has helped create the musical platform of Everlife's message and
sound. "We love working with the guys," explains Sarah, "They are a wealth
of knowledge and they always know the direction we need to go in before we
start working. We are individually finding our strengths while we grow together
as a band. It's been a fantastic experience, and even though it's a lot of
work, it's been a lot of fun as well."
Recently Everlife stopped by the Epiphone showroom to
check out some new Epi's for their Spring tour.
