Evermore are an alternative rock band, from the New Zealand North Island town of Feilding. The band consists of the Hume brothers â Jon (Guitar, Vocals), Peter (Keyboards, Bass, Vocals) and Dann (Drums, Guitars, Vocals).
Jon Hume, the eldest, was born in Australia, but Peter Hume and Dann Hume were born in New Zealand, where the brothers were raised and homeschooled. The band cites their parentsâ music collection â consisting of staples such as The Who, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan and The Kinks â as being among their music influences. The name Evermore comes from Led Zeppelinâs The Battle of Evermore and a B-Side by The Chills simply called 'Evermore'.
In 2000, they scored top marks at New Zealandâs 2000 Rock Quest, a national high school band competition. The prize they received went toward establishing and funding their own studio, Red Sky Studio. Their debut single, Slipping Away, earned them some attention when it was put on high rotation on the alternative Australian radio station Triple J. Their first EP, Oil and Water, was released in April 2003 and coincided with their Triple J-backed tour...
