Everlife was an American pop rock band made up of three sisters, Amber, Sarah, and Julia Ross.[1]

History[edit]

Early[edit]

Everlife originated in Indiana, Pennsylvania. The band was formed in the winter of 1997 with Sarah on the drums, Amber on the guitar, and Julia on keyboard.

In 2002, Everlife and their mother, Susan, shared a song with the band members of Seventh Day Slumber.

The band members of Seventh Day Slumber lent their expertise to Everlife by connecting them to music industry people in Nashville, Tennessee.[2]

In 2003, Everlife relocated to Nashville, Tennessee with their parents where they signed a single album record deal with Independent Records, and released their debut album Daydream: An Acoustic Album. Then in 2004, their A&R contact, Gary Chapman, guided them to secure their second record deal. They were signed with Tovah Records, in association with Crowne Music Group, and released their self-titled second album: Everlife.[3][4]

The songs "I'm Over It" and "Pick It or Kick It" caught the attention of KMKI, AM 620, the Radio Disney Station in Dallas, Texas.[5] Phil Guerini, an executive at Walt Disney Records, said he was impressed that Everlife has a unique sound and the girls play their own instruments.

The Buena Vista Music Group signed sister singing sensations Everlife for their debut album on Buena Vista Records and Hollywood Records.[6] Their joint venture with Disney happily set Everlife up among the likes of Hilary Duff and Jesse McCartney. [7] Their first No. 1 radio hit, "Find Yourself in You", found prominent rotation nationwide on Radio Disney. They also sang the title song for the 2005 Disney original movie "Go Figure".[1] The Everlife album peaked at number 121 on the Billboard 200 chart.[8]

Everlife was recently managed by Tattered Suit Entertainment.

The group has provided guest vocals for ApologetiX song Meshach.

Relationship with Disney[edit]

With being signed to Buena Vista Records, they contributed songs to 12 Disney compilations.[9] They appeared on popular Disney compilation albums such as Radio Disney Jams and Disney Mania.[7] Everlife has been featured on four Disney film soundtracks and two Disney TV soundtracks. They eventually parted ways with Buena Vista Records in 2007, but continued a strong relationship with Disney.

To celebrate Radio Disney's 10th Birthday Celebration, Disney held the "Totally 10 Birthday Concert" where Everlife was featured live, among five other Disney artists.

They also opened for The Cheetah Girls on their last few days of touring in 2006/2007, Miley Cyrus on the last six dates of her Best of Both Worlds Tour, and the Jonas Brothers for their 2009 stop in Nashville.

Everlife has been on 3 successful tours of the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

Conclusion[edit]

Everlife released their final album, At the End of Everything, in March 2013.[10]
