Ever More Nest
Like the farming homesteaders of her native Mississippi River Delta, Ever More Nest builds houses of emotion among fields of mercy, forests of fears, and streams of consciousness. These are houses that are lived in, that draw in visitors to comfortable confines with the promise of warmth despite the dust, grit, and dangers of the day. Rooted in Southern musical traditions and infused with confessional 90s angst, the music of Ever More Nest can likewise lull and rock you right off a front porch. Ever More Nest’s dynamic, homegrown voice—hugged by lush, church-pew harmonies— is complemented by ghostly, effusive guitars, spirited mandolin and banjo, mournful fiddle, and a rhythm section steady as a country train. Ever More Nest's 2018 debut album, The Place That You Call Home, was nominated for Best Alt-Country Album in the Independent Music Awards, and its follow up is due out August 19, 2022. Ever More Nest tours with band arrangements ranging from a guitar duo to a full six-piece band with two guitarists, banjo & mandolin, fiddle, bass and drums. The band has performed at numerous music festivals and venues/listening rooms, including the John F. Kennedy Center, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Milwaukee’s SummerFest, and more.
