EVER-G, born Everett G. Streete hails from Cash Hill, Hanover Parish, Jamaica is a talented reggae artist who writes and sings positive, conscious and uplifting songs of peace, love and unity. His messages of Jah, Family, Peace and Love of Life comes through powerfully in his musical style.
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 takes you back to a time of great reggae rhythms, a passion for social causes, a love for all human beings and a deep caring for the world's children. Although greatly impressed and intrigued by Reggae's musical greats, EVER-G has developed a distinctive and sophisticated style of his own, which is appreciated by music lovers everywhere and has garnered him an international fan base.
While growing In Jamaica, his love of life and passion to succeed was evident, since the tender age of 4, where he took every opportunity he could to sing in his neighborhood church or schools. Everett's passion and thirst for growth and knowledge became a reality, at age 12, when he received a full scholarship to Rusea's High School. His passion for learning continued there, as did his lust for music. By 15, Everett was playing the guitar and by 16, he was lead vocalist in the school's band. Everett continued his string of successes with his acceptance to college, where he graduated from the Jamaica School of Agriculture (JSA) with a Diploma & Teacher's Certificate and the additional titles of lead vocalist, guitarist and keyboardist of his college band.
EVER-G migrated to the USA in 1984, integrating himself into a new life on the East Coast. EVER-G continued to feed his music passion and built a name for himself, as a rhythm guitarist and vocalist by playing with a number of local bands. EVER-G was fortunate to complete his first recording at Bob Marley's Tuff Gong Studio in Kingston, Jamaica and later fulfilling his dream as the lead singer of the band "Children of Jah". EVER-G later gained greater success when he formed his own band, EVER-G & the Crew. The band consists of himself as Lead Vocalist, The Irieites (backup singers) and 4 highly skilled veteran musicians who have traveled the world playing roots music.
Always humble, EVER-G is a strong believer of helping the less fortunate by giving back to his community. In 2008 Valentine's Day, EVER-G gave back by giving a free concert to benefit "Transitions", an organization assisting victims of domestic abuse and violence at the N. Phoebus Community Center in Hampton, Va.
