“What a Beautiful Feeling”– Evernow to release full-length album, music video

After their life-changing experience on The Extreme Tour, where they bonded as a band and improved their live show, Evernow is hitting the pavement running, and are on their way to creating a name for themselves in the pop rock genre.

This year, they’re working on a full-length album with a new, heavier sound, and will have their newest single, “Find,” featured in a horror-comedy film titled “Death Cab,” which is produced by a producer of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the writer of James Franco’s Evil Days. And vocalist Kasey Yale might even be working with the composers creating the film’s score. 

Evernow also attended the National Association of Music Merchants trade show (NAMM) again this year, where they picked up a couple of new endorsements, as well as met some idols and connected with people in person whom they’ve been working with virtually for a couple of years.

New Full-Length Album

“The most beautiful smile is one that struggles through the tears,” is a quote that sums up the tone of Evernow’s newest album, according to the band. The songs will focus on change and growth—much like the band’s current status.

 

There are currently three new songs for the album so far, but Evernow just keeps writing better and better music as they go along and rehearse, so they “never feel satisfied” because the next song will be even better than the last, according to guitarist Andrew Reinjohn. However, the band is hoping to release the album by the end of this year.

Additionally, Evernow is releasing two music videos, one for their single “Find” and a yet-to-be-recorded single, “Warm Again.”

Fun Fact:  The “rapper” in “Find” is actually Yale—clearly a vocalist of all trades.    

Fans can still expect the band’s signature positive vibe on this album, but the music will sound heavier and have more serious tones, which their new guitar strings helped create. Evernow recently snagged an endorsement with D'Angelico Strings’ Electrozinc Strings, which, according to Yale, produces a heavier and rich sound on the guitar than regular strings.

NAMM

In addition to D’Angelico Strings, while attending NAMM, Evernow was picked up by Earasers, Cruz Tools and Toleeto Fastners International—but the band is still a huge part and endorser of the Chord & Major family. When Evernow wasn’t gaining endorsements from companies, guitarist Reinjohn enjoyed spending time at the GraphTech booth, while drummer Ryan Gio enjoyed the drum showcase. Yale got to meet one of his long-time idols, Brian “Head” Welch, the guitarist from the nu-metal band Korn.

Welch converted to Christianity after struggling with issues that were compounded by spending his life touring with the band, and Yale got to tell Welch how much he meant to him and how his books inspired him. As a fellow Christian in the rock world, and both having been born in Bakersville, being able to meet Welch was definitely a highlight of Yale’s NAMM experience.   

Upcoming Shows

Evernow will be playing a free show at The King Eddy (which is LA’s equivalent of New York’s famous CBGB music club) on February 26 at 9 p.m., where they will be debuting three new songs. And to celebrate Yale’s birthday, they will be performing at The Study in Hollywood on May 19. The band has shows booked through July, and you can stay up-to-date on their tour dates on Evernow’s Facebook page, and their website, evernowmusic.com

Speaking of websites, in addition to all of this new and exciting news for Evernow, they’re also revamping their website, evernowmusic.com. Be sure to check it out within the next couple of weeks to see their new layout and to stay up-to-date on their upcoming shows and their album release.

What is a "Tonal" earphone?

January 15, 2016 | 0 comments

If you’re into music—whether as a hobby or professionally—and you get a new car, what’s the first thing you do after turning the ignition? Set the stereo levels of course! If you have a keen, musical ear, you might notice that you can never seem to get it quite right. Whether you can’t hear every instrument, or the bass is just a bit too loud. Unless you’re an expert at how sound works, it’s nearly impossible to get these settings exactly right—much less get the settings exactly right for different genres of music (because that truly does matter). And nobody wants to have to change the settings each time they listen to a different genre.

Thankfully, Chord & Major does the work for you—with tonal earphones.

Research

Based on years of study, which includes a stylistic analysis, an instrument analysis, a recording technology analysis, psychological and physiological analyses and a music expert evaluation, tonal earphones create the perfect equalization of sound frequency based on the genre of music and the user’s preference. And this is why tonal earphones are the top choice of in-ear headphones among musicians, recording engineers and other folks in the music industry.

Stylistic Analysis

The creators of Chord & Major focus on fundamental elements of different genres of music, including rhythms, tuning, harmony and frequency. They take these findings and apply them to the design of the in-ear headphones so they produce the most organic sound possible.

Instrument Analysis

Most musicians understand that every instrument has different acoustics and frequencies. Chord & Major studies the different frequencies—including separation and stereo specs— in each individual instrument, creating the optimal balance of sound in the in-ear headphones.

Recording Technology Analysis

Every musical genre must be recorded differently due to the different performance sites. For example, classical music should be heard in an acoustically specialized environment, where rock and jazz are typically heard in less structured environments. Tonal earphones take this into consideration and are manufactured to accommodate the different types of recordings.

Psychological and Physiological Analysis

When creating the perfect set of in-ear headphones, the user is the most important aspect to consider. Through careful study of individuals’ preferences of genres and the biological physics of how humans hear, Chord & Major was able to discern what sounds are appealing to different types individuals and created tonal, in-ear headphones for several different types of genres.

Music Expert Evaluation

Since tonal, in-ear headphones are for people who “know” music more than the average person, it’s important to get evaluation and direction from individuals in the music industry. These observations help shape the creation of the perfect headphone.

The result of this analysis drives the engineering of the single dynamic driver, and associated components.

Design

Unlike the plastic used by other brands of in-ear headphones, Chord & Major tonal, in-ear headphones use natural woods and metal that provides a warmer and richer sound. Each tonal earphone is created with a different type of wood that creates the perfect sound for a specific genre, whether it’s jazz, classical, rock, or world music. The driver diaphragms are composed of a material of select hardness and carved with a unique pattern. The depth, quantity, pattern, and shape of the shallow notches affect its “hardness”, which affects the tonal quality. For example, the harder diaphragms provide faster vibrations, which create a brighter sound. And the softer the material, with better elasticity produces slower vibrations and exudes more low frequency and reverberation. The compressed cotton material backing the driver is selected for optimized elasticity, permeability, and resilience and is also used to adjust tonal features to match specific genres.

Tonal, in-ear headphones are far superior to other in-ear headphones on the market today, due to the extensive research conducted and the design created with the user and the science of music in mind. This is why musicians, engineers and others in the music industry choose tonal, in-ear headphones over any other headphone on the market:

Every note is heard.

Music is delivered exactly as the musicians intended.

Whether you’re a casual listener, or part of the industry, check out which Chord & Major set of in-ear headphones is right for you.

Chord & Major and Me: A Comparative Review for Regular Folks

November 06, 2015 | 0 comments

As a music lover with a stronger commitment to staying married than to spending vast sums on my hobbies, I’ve never spent $1,800 on earphones. Or $800. Or even $180, for that matter. So, while an audiophile with a monster budget (and probably no wife) might consider the under-$200 C&Ms an “affordable” investment, I’m among the many experiencing them as a step or two up from my norm.

Short Version: there is absolutely no aspect of Chord & Major’s tonal earphone line, starting with the sound quality of all three sets, that doesn’t reflect the company’s mission to redefine how really good an under-$200 earphone can be.
