Everson Pines is a Seattle based band founded by Trevor Lyon and Karl Benitez, two childhood friends who simply decided to start jamming one day.  What started as fun aimless jam sessions, has grown into an obsession for classic rock riffs and pop melodies.  With a double singer/songwriter contribution, every song has a unique flavor ranging from melodic and heartfelt to crunchy and hard-rocking.  We harken back to the days when musicians plugged into their amps and let their axes do the talking.  At an Everson Pines show, you’ll be sure to have a good time, while hearing a mix of familiar sounds from bands you probably love like we do: Drive-By Truckers, The Doors, and The Band.

With the help of producer Geoff Stanfield (Sun Kil Moon, Grace Weber, Firehorse) and engineer Sam Hofstedt (Pearl Jam, Soundgarden) we've recently finished our second EP Chicken House, recorded mostly live at Studio Litho in Fremont.
