Three very young sisters raised on 60’s and 70’s rock n’ roll stood together in 1997 to make a musical promise that would determine their future – to become a relevant, popular music act. Wading the waters of the music business as teenagers allowed Julia, Sarah and Amber to reach a business and musical maturity beyond their current years.
With successful stops at SHELTERecords and Disney’s Buena Vista Records, this pop rock threesome had the amazing opportunity to contribute to 12 Disney Compilations, release 2 albums and perform for millions of fans while opening shows for the Jonas Brothers and on tours with Disney teen superstars The Cheetah Girls and Miley Cyrus.
“We grew up performing for years in random places; from churches to bars to parties to festivals. We always had to gauge our audience and learn what they would respond to. The Disney tours helped us perfect that, how to perform for hundreds of thousands of kids, parents and teens all at once and still capture them individually.” - Julia
At the conclusion of 2007, Everlife found themselves at a crossroads – although “family-friendly,” their songwriting and musical style was maturing – making it harder to be a “tween” band. Coupled with the news of their parent’s divorce, the three devoted sisters decided to step back and regroup.
“When we came to this place where we felt like our world was shaken, we realized we had a choice to go through the heartache and confusion with each other or avoid it and become bitter and closed off. Because we decided to face it all as a family, we really became stronger together, and ultimately, as individuals.” - Sarah
The girls spent 2008 writing and touring, performing charitable tours in Germany with the USO and creating and promoting their own Christmas tour. The first part of 2009 brought a 2 month headlining tour through 8 countries in Europe, as well as an independently produced 4 song EP that is available now at iTunes. The have spent the past few years focused on developing their musical prowess and defining, together, exactly what kind of band they are. Julia (20), Sarah (23) and Amber (25) emerged as beautiful young women with amazing musical stories to tell. Their resulting balanced and positive view of life and relevant pop rock style resonates with their peers and will capture your heart.
“After parting ways with the label, and unexpectedly having to self-manage, we were thrown into really figuring out who we were as Everlife. We realized we’re always telling stories, writing about the things we know and hoping to inspire people in their lives.” - Amber
“We want our music to resonate with people. To showcase what we love, a mix of faith, harmony and sticking to our roots in rock’n’roll.” - Julia
Remaining true to their “family friendly” core and keeping the pact the sisters made as children, Everlife has become a group of unquestionably savvy businesswomen and musicians. Although their new journey has just begun, their timeless music, harmonious vocals and deeply honest lyrics prove Julia, Sarah and Amber truly have come of age.

I am so sad that they are recording their final album "At the End of Everything". It is entirely fan funded, so I am excited that it can be what they want, no outside influence other than fans.
