Evergo

Evergo (Alt Rock/Pop) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania




The band “evergo” is the alternative rock pop, group from Pennsylvania. Several members were previously touring the east coast with the former country duo, Born Sisters for the past 10 years. It was a grateful journey that lives on in their hearts. Today they have taken their amazing experiences and musical backgrounds to cultivate evergo. These musicians are fusing alternative rock rhythms with a pop-punk feel, tied together with story-telling lyrics. These artists are influenced by powerful music creators such as Paramore, Goo Goo Dolls, The Veronicas, The Killers and Michelle Branch.

They released their debut EP in 2018 and recently released their sophomore EP in Summer 2020. Immersed in their new music, they are diligently and excitedly honing their craft, sound and lyrics, while also gearing up for 2020 shows. Lead singer/songwriter/rhythm guitarist, Kristen, began penning songs on piano and guitar from the ripe age of 11 years old. A few years down the road she collaborated with members Jason, Dante, and Jeff. Bassist, Jason, has continued to highlight songs with his bass licks and co-writing contributions since the age of 14. Drummer, Dante, has been tearing up the kit since before he could talk and is truly the heartbeat to the band's sound. To top it off, lead guitarist and producer, Jeff brings over a decade of lead guitar arrangements and professional studio experience.

This group is not short of success to say the least. evergo has opened for acts, Drake Bell, Carousel Kings, Best Not Broken, and more! Three members, Kristen, Jason, and Dante have shared the stage with well-known acts such as Miranda Lambert, Gary Alan, Chris Stapleton and more. Jeff has worked in the studio with acts such as, August Burns Red and Mitchell Rogers, of Varials and in past bands has opened for acts such as Emarosa and The Early November. evergo has performed at venues such as Radio 104.5 Philadelphia’s Alternative Rock studio and Underground Arts in Philly, to The Grape Room in Conshohocken, as well as Anchor Rock Club in Atlantic City, NJ to name a few.

The first time evergo performed as a band was in September of 2016. After the show, crowds of people were rushing up to the group in shock of the buzz that their debut performance created. There was not an audience member that day who was not raving about the band and from that moment on they knew they had something special. We hope you think so too. ;)

"Tomorrow Somehow" EP Review
The opener "Head Down" has a subtle build early on with some swirling riffs before finally breaking through around the one minute mark. The high tempo chorus works quite well and showcases the incredible range of the entire group. "Glue or Tape" brings to mind The Morning Of. The soaring chorus and melodies are awesome. The track has single written all over it. "Fake." starts off with some emotional vibes. There's a slight Alternative Rock vibe to it but it has stronger Pop qualities. It's super catchy and deserves to be on radio as soon as possible. "Hypocrite Misfit" has a lengthy instrumental intro that lasts until the 45 second mark. The track then takes off running and has that Pop/Rock energy to it, especially in the chorus. "Neptune Eyes" kicks off with some Dredg like instrumentation to create a more atmospheric Rock feel. The low key vibes continue in the first verse. The chorus could be a bit stronger in its delivery but overall it's good in its intent. The guitar work on the track takes over at times to add some flair. The closer and title track "Tomorrow Somehow" wraps everything up nicely. Theere's a bit of Flyleaf to it as the track as some Hard Rock edge to it along with some tremendous melodic vocals.

Verdict:
Evergo captivates the listener with their ultra catchy blend of Alternative Rock/Pop.

-Interview- (9/23/20)
1. How did you get started with music and how did you develop your sound? Who thought of the name “Evergo" and is there any meaning behind it?

We all played in bands previous to evergo for many years but we all got together making music in 2017 after each of us had gone on a little hiatus from performing. We developed our sound by blending each band member’s personal music style into one vibe and it has kinda been evolving with edge ever since. Kristen thought of the name ‘evergo’. The band name derived from the thought: Music is everlasting and no matter what struggles come about, in order to get past them, you have to keep going.


2. What do you want people to take away from your music?

What we want people to take away from our music is any kind of connection. Whether it be a lyric, melody, rhythm or a smile exchanged on stage. If we left even the smallest imprint on your soul, the music we are making is worth it.


3. How would you describe your sound to the average listener?

Our sound is raw vocals intertwined with alt rock melodies and poppy hooks.


4. Who are three bands you’d like to tour with?

Never been asked this question and it is very hard to answer but if we had to pick 3 at this time: Paramore, The Killers and Boys Like Girls.


5. What are your three desert island albums that you'd never get tired of listening to?

'Dizzy Up The Girl' - Goo Goo Dolls, 'II: This Time It's Personal' - Periphery and 'Stadium Arcadium' - Red Hot Chili Peppers.


6. What’s your take on the current state of Pop Rock?

Rock will never die and pop is constantly evolving ear candy.


7. What’s the current music scene like there in Pennsylvania?

There are numerous talented bands here in PA. We love playing shows here just as much as we love supporting the live music scene here. Unfortunately, due to the covid pandemic us, along with a lot of other musicians, are unable to play as many live shows as we would like. Safety comes first and we will happily continue to do our part during these tough times until the virus passes. We are all trying to make it work by keeping our content alive on social media, best we can, to connect with the rest of the creative community.


8. What’s your take on the royalties that streaming services pay out to artists?

No news flash here: Streams are not compensated fairly and sadly this has been a never-ending, always ‘appealing’, legal battle between us (the songwriters/creators/performers, etc.) and the big players such as Spotify, Pandora, Tidal, etc. However, these streaming platforms are crucial for all artists, large and small. They make music accessible to the listener at the touch of a button which is paramount in helping to grow a fanbase and staying connected with those fans through newly released material.


9. What’s next for Evergo?

We have a show coming up on October 3rd! We are currently writing new music to put out, sooner than we probably normally would because of the low volume of concerts everywhere, since we just released our latest EP in Summer 2020. Stay tuned for new evergo bops in the next few months!


10. Any shoutouts?

To anyone who has played one of our songs or made it out to a concert, thank you for showing love.
