Everett Streete a.k.a. Ever-G is a singer, songwriter, guitar player who grew up in Hanover, Jamaica WI, where he listened to the music of Reggae artists like Dennis Brown, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer. These renown artists helped to influence his musical style. Already during his schooldays he was into music as he was the lead singer for his High School band and also his College band. After leaving College Ever-G went on to perform with a number of groups in Jamaica before migrating to the United States in 1984. From then on he has been a member of numerous bands in the U.S., including Unconquered People, Positive Vibration, D-KGB, The Bottom Lion and most recently Sonz Of The Most High. In 1997 Ever-G recorded and co-produced an album for GurneyMan entitled "Jah Gave Us Music". Now Ever-G, alongside his musical partner Biggs, delivers a new album on which he himself sings his self-penned songs as well as provides the guitar work. "World Peace" is a solid, entertaining and appealing effort, which mainly focuses on the "roots & culture" side of Reggae music, although some love tunes are included as well. The strength of this album is build on two levels : first of all its well-crafted songs including such standouts as "The System", Jah Creator & Father","A Who A Say" and "Son Of The Most High" and secondly a sound that is definitely roots-oriented, although their mastery is more digital recording. Ever-G states that he "intends to continue writing, singing and producing songs indefinitely" and, listening to "World Peace", that's certainly no wrong intention !Teacher & Mr. T.
