Like the great American bands that came before them - new Broken Bow Records duo Everette doesn't follow trends. Instead, the guys of Everette write what they live, weaving gritty tales of struggle and heartbreak alongside fun-loving stories of escapism and mischief. Often their songs are written while touring - sometimes during sleepless nights as an odometer tracks the miles or on a day off in a dingy motel room off the beaten path - but always organically and always from the heart.
Hailing from humble beginnings, Brent Rupard and Anthony Olympia unknowingly went to high school a mere eight miles apart in rural Bullitt County, Kentucky. Brent spent much of his youth on his family's horse farm and even dabbled in barrel racing. Anthony's grandpa was a hall of fame quarter horse trainer and, although their families were friends, the two musicians wouldn't meet until the age of 21 when Brent took a guitar lesson from the classically-trained Anthony.
