Happy New Year

Here is wishing you all a very happy and prosperous New Year! The Ever After is looking forward to a busy year. We have a new website in the works, a brand new album ready to be recorded and an eventful concert season being planned. We hope you are excited as we are and we look forward to helping make 2017 a memorable year for music!

Oh Dear! available on CD Baby

The first album recorded as The Ever After called Oh Dear!  from 2009 has recently been re-released on CD Baby.  It’s 9 songs of original acoustic music with elements of blues, folk, bossa and classical. It was entirely self-funded and independently released – in fact Andreas did all the recording, mixing and mastering himself (which was probably not a good idea, in retrospect 🙂 ) It’s a piece of TEA history though and you can check it out here.

The Resident Alien

Andreas has just released a new album of electronic music for his project The Resident Alien. It’s 8 tracks of downtempo EDM with elements of Drum n Bass and Trance. There is a photo associated with each track depicting a typical day in the life of The Resident Alien.

You can check out the music and photos on the Resident Alien Website. Along with the album release, Andreas is hosting a crowdfunding campaign to recoup the expenses for producing and distributing the album. Check out the music and please consider supporting Andreas’s new album!

Below is the photography entitled Civic Duty from the album

Videos from the Casa Del Popolo show

We had a great time playing at Casa Del Popolo the other night with Bound and Tethered and Scott Moffat. It is truly a pleasure to play at a venue that is so well organized and operated – everything from the ambiance and decor, to the people that work there, to the sound man Steve, is top rate! You can just tell it is a venue owned and operated by musicians who actually care.

Aside from the great venue we were also really pleased to be playing with some excellent other musicians. Scott Moffat was a last minute addition to the bill  so I didn’t really know what to expect but the man can sing and play guitar. And really good songs too. Unbeknownst to me (being somewhat ignorant of a lot of canadian pop culture references), he was also in a very successful pop/rock band which you can read all about here. Well what do you know!

I would like to give a big thank you to Bound and Tethered who played and sang beautifully and also helped out with a lot of the production for the evening. Chris See Hoye put together the lovely poster and was a big help all around. Chris and Stefanie write really good songs together and they are a lot of fun to watch. I see they are playing at Casa again on Nov 15th – I can highly recommend it!

Finally, thanks to Aude Lavier and Dominic Lanteigne on drums and bass respectively for turning what was supposed to be a solo set in to an energetic trio rock out. With only a rehearsal and a half we managed to get it done! And here is the video to prove it 🙂
