Ever-G will perform in support of the Florence Crittenton benefit “Reggae 4 A
Reason” on Sunday, June 12, 2005 at 3 p.m. on Bowen’s Island.
Traditionally, reggae music has been a genre entrenched in social commentary.
It’s fitting that
Ever-G, roots reggae artist, would accept an invitation from Florence
Crittenton to support the needs and issues associated with unplanned pregnancies
for women in South Carolina.Ever-G born, Everett G. Streete, has been exercising his musical gift since the
tender age of 4. G was born in the small district of Cash-Hill, Hanover Parish,
Jamaica. In 1999 Ever-G released his debut solo CD
World Peace. His second project,
Independence, was released in 2003. Both CDs received rave reviews
and are known for their positive, upbeat messages. February 2005 he released
Mission acclaimed for its nostalgic vibe, dreamy melodies,
evocative harmonies, and soulful delivery.
Mission is a 12-track CD full of moving Reggae rhythms with Ever-G’s
touching and truthful lyrics. The CD will move you beyond what is known as World
Music with his soulful voice fusing Blues, Rock, Funk, R&B and other genres of
World Music with Reggae. Ever-G adds live horns, strong guitar and hook lines
with soulful female background vocals.
Ever-G is one of those rare artists who is able to combine supremely melodic
songs with lyrical substance like “What’s UP With the World”, “Teach Us To
Love”, “Run Babylon”, and “Take A Look” all from his newly release CD Mission.
These songs are trenchant works filled with lyrics dealing with social issues
and spiritual inspiration in the best tradition of G’s heroes Bob Marley, Curtis
Marley. Although these artists influenced him and his musical style, G still
manages to remain original and true to his own style of music.
Florence Crittenton has provided shelter and support for single mothers in South
Carolina since 1897. Their Mission is to provide and promote those comprehensive
medical, educational and support services, which will most effectively insure
the well-being and self-sufficiency of single parents and their children in
South Carolina. To learn more about the Florence Crittenton and their programs
