Grammy award winning songwriter, singer, spoken wordsmith, and producer may be accurate nouns when touting the artist known as evrYwhr (pronounced Everywhere), but ‘music visionary’ may be more of a complete and veracious term.

evrYwhr was born and raised in Port Huron, Michigan. evrYwhr’s love and obsession for all things music began at the age of 5, when he would sit next to his dad on the family sofa listening to old Stax and Motown records, while engulfing himself in the sounds of artists like Curtis Mayfield, Michael Jackson and New Edition. By age 9, evrYwhr starting singing, and at 14 wrote his first song.

In 2010, he made a bold move to Los Angeles and wasted no time getting acclimated to the big city. He started collaborating with a number of artists and would eventually go onto co-write two songs entitled “Confessions” and “Violence” for the 2013 Grammy-winning album Gravity, performed by Gospel rapper Lecrae.

evrYwhr embodies an eclectic fusion of r&b, afropop and soul. evrYwhr’s music tell the stories of love, authenticity and self-discovery. evrYwhr is slated to release his debut album in the summer of 2023 alongside label Saint & Citizen Music.
