Rock band Evership is the conceptualization of composer, multi-instrumentalist and producer/engineer
Shane Atkinson. After a decade in music in Nashville, Shane had left the music industry to raise a
family. Years later, in response to a dream, he returned to music and began recording what had lay
dormant over the years of hiatus. Towards the end of recording these initial songs Shane met Beau
West, the lead vocalist, through a mutual friend, and this set a course for a three-year journey of
finishing the recording, resulting in the birth of Evership in 2016.
If you have missed this band, few recent acts have made a bigger splash than Evership
in the world of modern art/progressive or symphonic rock. Their solid and impactful self-titled
album was one of the best received modern rock debuts according to most prominent prog outlets and
catapulted them to the forefront of the rock world. This lead to mainstage performances at the
largest of US Art/Prog rock festivals RoSFest and ProgStock and over 50 glowing national and
international reviews and interviews, from the industry and fans alike, both in print and online
publications. Highland (Issue #108) hails Evership as "firmly establishing themselves in the
Progressive American Landscape" and UK's ProgRadar sites "Evership is the new
face of American Prog".
The sophomore album "Evership II" was released in October of 2018 and continued the
epic journey begun with the celebrated debut. The Evership buzz ultimately reached the editors of
the ubiquitous international progressive rock magazine PROG, which interviewed Evership in the April
2019 Issue #97. The UK magazine also featured Evership's 'The Serious Room', 'Wanderer' and 'Hall of
Visions' on their CD samplers.
Evership released their third album 'The Uncrowned King - Act 1' on May 21st, 2021. The response was astounding. The
single 'Allthetime' was released April 23nd, 2021 to great fan and industry acclaim, appeared on PROG magazine's CD
Sampler (Issue #119) and aired internationally on terrestrial and internet radio. The epic music video to 'The Tower'
aired on November 24th 2021. 'The Uncrowned King - Act 2' was preluded by three singles. The first single 'Coronation'
was released on June 22nd, 2022. The second single 'The Voice of the New Day', released July 15th, features
SAGA-frontman Michael Sadler. The final single 'The Law of Ages' is accompanied by an elegant music video sensation. And
finally the awaitied conclusion to the rock opera 'The Uncrowned King - Act 2' was released October 14th, 2022 to great
international acclaim, rating solid 'best of 2022' awards proving that this band is at full-sail and the journey continues strong!
