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, Wilco, 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 debut EP Please Be Still.  Recorded mostly live at Studio Litho in Fremont, Please Be Still leans heavily on the classic sounds of electric guitars being played through cranked amps, Fender Rhodes and Wurlitzer pianos, and the unmatched combo of the Hammond Organ coming through a Leslie.  After three marathon days of hauling gear, shredding our guitars and voices we succeeded in creating a fun rock n roll record that is as much fun to listen to as it was to record.
