ENSPIRE Contributor: LaShonda Thompson
The Grammy-award winning-Michigan native evrYwhr, planted a memorable seed when he released the affirmation-driven single “Positive Vibes” earlier this year. Pulling similar themes of positivity and freedom, evrYwhr is back with his latest single, ‘Tie Dye,’ produced by Blair Taylor (2 Chainz, G-Eazy).
‘Tie Dye’ is a polished record made of loose, richly textured melodies with airy flute accents that weaves colorful sounds undergirded with a trap-like cadence. The song brings evrYwhr’s eclectic blend of r&b and pop and carries thematic weight, encouraging listeners to just BE – free-flowing like the colors of Tie Dye pattern.
“In every song I write, I try to keep it real, keep it positive, keep it light,” said evrYwhr, whose love for all things music began at age 5. “I’ve loved the Motown sound my entire life and continue to draw on my roots, even as I work on new songs and ideas.”
Further showcasing his passion for world cultures, evrYwhr also released the first episode of his new Transit Pictures produced show, “Destination evrYwhr,” which premieres exclusively on KevOnStage Studios. The show showcases his travels to Cambodia, where he connects with people and their experiences through the medium of music.
Look for ‘Tie Dye’ as part of evrYwhr’s awaited debut album set to be released in the summer of 2022 under label Saint & Citizen music.
Grammy award-winning songwriter, singer, spoken wordsmith, and producer are accurate nouns when touting the artist known as evrYwhr (pronounced Everywhere), but ‘music visionary’ may be a more complete and veracious term. His music is an eclectic mix of positive, uplifting R&B/Pop with a cinematic-orchestral feel.
evrYwhr (birth name Michael Jefferson) was born and raised in Port Huron, Michigan, to a loving working-class family helmed by parents bonded by a 40+ year marriage. evrYwhr’s love and obsession for all things music began at the age of 5 while sitting next to his dad on the family sofa listening to old Stax and Motown records. In addition, he would engulf himself in the sounds of artists like Curtis Mayfield, Michael Jackson, and New Edition. By age 9, evrYwhr began singing, and at 14, he scribed his first song.
He earned a degree in Sales & Business Marketing while attending Western Michigan University, but his true desire was to become a successful songwriter and recording artist. So in 2010, he made a bold move to Los Angeles. “If you’re gonna work, you have to be at the office,” he says. “The move was the biggest decision I ever made because I knew no one in Los Angeles, and I would truly be on my own.” evrYwhr wasted no time getting acclimated in the “City of Angels” and networking his way into collaborating with emerging pop artists like Leona Lewis, Mila J, and Aaron Carter. It wasn’t long before he co-wrote two songs entitled “Confessions” and “Violence” for Gospel rapper Lecrae’s 2013 Grammy-winning album Gravity.
