Combining his versatility as a singer, thoughtfulness as a writer, and progressive thinking as a producer, Everson successfully released his sucessfuldebut EP this past March. Titled No Doubt, this project sets the bar for his potential as an upcoming artist from the Midwest. This project epitomizes Everson’s diversity as an artist, his range of skill, and growth as a musician. Shortly following this successful release, Everson collaborated with LA-based DJ duo Boombox Cartel to release their single “B2U”. Garnering over 1 million plays and attention from the likes of OWSLA, Laidback Luke and Martin Garrix in just a few months, it opened a new world of possibilities for him as a songwriter and vocalist. Everson is currently preparing a follow-up EP set for release this Winter.
