Like the farming homesteaders of her native Mississippi River Delta, Ever More Nest builds houses of emotion among fields of mercy, forests of fears, and streams of consciousness. These are houses that are lived in, that draw in visitors to comfortable confines with the promise of warmth despite the dust, grit, and dangers of the day. Rooted in Southern musical traditions and infused with confessional 90s angst, the music of Ever More Nest can likewise lull and rock you right off a front porch. Ever More Nest’s dynamic, homegrown voice—hugged by lush, church-pew harmonies— is complemented by ghostly, effusive guitars, spirited mandolin and banjo, mournful fiddle, and a rhythm section steady as a country train.
Ever More Nest tours with band arrangements ranging from a guitar duo to a full six-piece band with two guitarists, banjo & mandolin, fiddle, bass and drums. The band has performed at numerous music festivals and venues/listening rooms, including the John F. Kennedy Center, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Milwaukee’s SummerFest, and more.
Out Here Now, the follow-up to Ever More Nest's lauded debut, was released on August 19, 2022 with it's single “What's Gone Is Gone” reaching #1 on the Roots Music Radio Contemporary Folk Songs Chart.
Ever More Nest’s debut album, The Place That You Call Home (2018) garnered praise from local, national, and international media. The album was nominated for Best Alt-Country Album in the 2019 Independent Music Awards and named to Offbeat Magazine's list of Top 50 Albums of 2018. Ever More Nest and The Place That You Call Home were nominated for Best Country/Folk/Singer-sonwriter Artist & Album in Offbeat's Best of the Beat Awards. The single, "Major Tom," was named a semi-finalist in the 2017 International Songwriting Competition.
