Steve Everett has been entertaining audiences for over a decade with his catchy melodies, honest voice, imagery-packed lyrics, and electric live performances. His sound is somewhere between Tom Petty, Sheryl Crow, and Matt Kearney. He’s not a singer pretending to be a guitar player, nor is he a guitarist stumbling through poorly written songs. Everett’s a singer, a song-writer, and a guitarist. Each one has been crafted since childhood and is the pride and joy of his life. Everett tours regularly with nationally recognized artists Michael Tolcher and Sister Hazel and has played to crowds of thousands at famous venues all over the country, including The House of Blues, Floyd’s Music Store in Tallahassee, FL, and Shank Hall in Milwaukee, WI. Everett is from North Carolina and attended Appalachian State University, where he studied music.
