EVER-G, an original soldier for Reggae, writes and sings positive and uplifting songs of peace, love and unity. His messages of Jah, Family, Peace and Love of Life come through powerfully in his music. Although musically influenced by Peter Tosh, Bob Marley, Dennis Brown, Bunny Wailer, as well as an admirer of the harmonies of the Wailers, Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions, EVER-G has a distinctive and sophisticated style of his own, which is appreciated by music lovers everywhere and has garnered him an international fan base.
Hailing from Hanover, Jamaica, singing from the age of four and performing live since the age of sixteen, EVER-G released his first Album, “World Peace” in 1999 and followed this with 7 more stellar works of art. Since then, he has been the recipient of numerous awards for his musical and professional contributions to and for the Reggae music industry.
A consummate performer, EVER-G has graced the stage, as the Support Act, of many of Reggae’s greats including: Steel Pulse, Third World, Shabba Ranks and Gregory Isaacs.
EVER-G has been compared to some of the great Reggae artists which he accepts as compliments, and caused the entertainer to say “Music is at the core of my being from which I am positively inspired to write about and spread the message of peace, love and unity.”
Coco Butter from 105.3 Kiss FM in Norfolk, VA says “EVER-G’s music is a mixture of reggae and gospel to me. It’s spiritual. His lyrics, combined with the music, take you to another world. It makes you escape your problems.” One of his fans, JoAnne says “Listening to your "muzik" you can tell how much your pour your heart and soul into the lyrics. Keep enjoying life! Luv Ya!”
In addition to his body of work with International Artists & Groups, and as his popularity increases, EVER-G has headlined at numerous festivals, clubs, Colleges and Universities along the US EAST Cost, Canada and Jamaica, with repeat performances at many, in subsequent years.
EVER-G never fails to energize and uplift his audience. His goal, above all, is to use his gift of words and powerful vocals combined with original and classic vintage rhythms to inspire others to become aware of their surroundings, extend a helpful and loving hand to those in need and fill the world with peace, love and unity.
