Andreas ∞ The Ever After are the soundtrack to an alternate reality. Mixing elements of folk, rock, funk, bossa and electronic music with their signature bluesy sound, the group has been influenced by great acts as diverse as Miles Davis, Led Zeppelin, B.B. King, Radiohead and Aphex Twin while retaining their own unique and fresh appeal. A fan once commented the group’s ethereal sound reminded her of music from a dream.
In early 2009, Andreas Blachere (Icenine, The Bad Sleep Well, Apostles) decided to branch out musically from his current projects. With a bunch of original music yet to be recorded, Andreas set h himself up at his studio in a refurbished pencil factory in Brooklyn, NY and recorded 10 tracks that would become the first demo of his new project The Ever After. The freshman effort entitled Oh Dear! was released in December 2009.
Since this first release, The Ever After have been playing shows at venues all over North America, including New York, Boston, Montreal and San Francisco. The lineup of the group has changed and evolved over the years, with great musicians like Becca Stevens, Greg Ritchie and Amos Fisher all lending a hand, but the act continues to produce and perform music under the direction of the founder Blachere. The current lineup features Jackson Jaojoby on bass and Martin Plante on drums.
In July 2013 Andreas ∞ The Ever After released their second recording, an EP called Take One produced and recorded by Blachere. The song The Doll was featured in a short film by Shubihashish Buhtani called The Star. In March 2015 the group was accepted as Featured Artists in the annual Yes Art Expo at the historic St James Theater in Montreal, where they played in front of hundreds of artists and art lovers alike.
In the latter half of 2015, Andreas took a break from The Ever After to write and produce his first album of electronic music as The Resident Alien. The album entitled The Only Constant Is Change was released in the spring of 2016.
Following The Resident Alien release, Blachere started playing shows around Montreal, New York and Burlington as The Ever After again. With the new group of Jaojoby and Plante, they started working on material for a new EP.
In March 2019, Andreas was selected to take part in a singer/songwriter residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts in Banff, Alberta. He wrote several new tunes which he was able to record at Telus Studios with an excellent studio band under the supervision of esteemed producer Howard Bilerman (Leonard Cohen, Arcade Fire, Godspeed). Two of these songs would end up on The Ever After’s upcoming EP.
In May 2019 the group released their third title, an EP called “Eh Voila!” including a few songs that were re-recorded with the new band (Unity, This River) as well as a few new songs including their first French song “Tirage au Sort” (co-written with Joel Prades) and an epic jam tune “Heddroom.”
