Everlife Audio Special

March 15th, 2013

Tommy2: Hey, it’s Tommy2 and today we’re at The Factory in Franklin, TN for Everlife’s final show. It’s about two hours until showtime and we’ve got Amber, Julia and Sarah here to talk about this special occasion. So how’s everyone feeling?

Amber Hezlep: Good… nervous.

Sarah Ross: Ooh, I’m getting nervous when you said two hours.

Julia Ross: When you said that, yeah!

Sarah Ross: We’re doing good, we’re excited now.

Julia Ross: We’ve gotta get dressed.

Tommy2: This last week has there been a lot of preparation that has gone into the show. Has it gone by fast?

Amber Hezlep: Yes.

Sarah Ross: Somedays were fast, somedays I felt like were…

Amber Hezlep: Were forever.

Sarah Ross: Really slow and forever and we had so much to do. But rehearsal was really good the other night so that was encouraging.

Amber Hezlep: It was… and Julia actually spent a lot of time this week putting together just a little bit of video content for the show and she’s had to like go through the last 16 years of our videos.

Julia Ross: Footage, photos.

Tommy2: And that’s a lot of work.

Julia Ross: Oh yeah, it took me eight hours to finish the video.

Sarah Ross: Crazy!

Amber Hezlep: Crazy!

Julia Ross: But… and it’s only three minutes long.

Tommy2: That’s how it always is, right?

Sarah Ross: Always!

Tommy2: That’s why nobody likes doing videos.

Julia Ross: Exactly!

Tommy2: Cause after they do them they realize they don’t want to do them again.

Julia Ross: Yeah!

Tommy2: Now, with your new release “At The End Of Everything,” do you feel like when you guys entered the writing sessions in the studios that there was more pressure on you since you that this was your final release?

Amber Hezlep: Actually, it was the opposite.

Sarah Ross: Actually it was less.

Julia Ross: Literally no pressure, and it was amazing.

Amber Hezlep: It was a really good feeling.

Sarah Ross: And I think too, before… I mean we’ve been independent, so it’s kind of that thing of like we just decided this is what we’re doing. We didn’t put together the normal, we’re releasing this and this is the promotional thing and whatever. It was just, we felt like we have something more to say and we want to end this chapter of our life well and so we just started writing. We took a year, really… to write songs.

Julia Ross: And it was our idea, it was for our fans, for our friends and for our family and everybody that has been with us. So, it was just us telling our story and saying “Thank You” basically.

Tommy2: And this album was funded via Kickstarter, now that you mentioned it, I was going to say do you think that that kind of helped you guys cause it gave you like momentum? Like everyone wants to hear this, so now let’s just do it.

Amber Hezlep: Exactly, yeah.

Sarah Ross: Oh yeah!

Julia Ross: We weren’t doing the record unless the Kickstarter happened, and it did and that’s why we’re here.

Amber Hezlep: It was humbling, very humbling and overwhelming to know there were people…

Sarah Ross: People still care.

Tommy2: You mentioned a video, are their any other special treats for tonight that people might see?

Amber Hezlep: Yeah, well we’re filming so anybody that can’t be here will see parts of the show online. There’s… yeah, we’re gonna bring up some people that are really good friends of ours and we’re going to, I don’t know, play some instruments we haven’t played in awhile.

Sarah Ross: Play some older songs, it’s going to be exciting.

Julia Ross: Old, old songs.

Amber Hezlep: Yeah, so it should be very interesting. What’s more frightening is that we’ve not played any of the new music out live yet, so…

Julia Ross: Yeah, that’s gonna be funny.

Amber Hezlep: We’re just hoping that goes well.

Tommy2: The first and last time.

Sarah Ross: The first and last time, crazy!

Tommy2: And then just kind of in closing here, we’ll go through each of you and why don’t you just say what’s your best memory of Everlife, like one of the best things that has happened to you as being part of this group?

Amber Hezlep: Oh my gosh! I think for me the best memory of the whole thing has been the fact that I was incredibly awkward and shy when I was a kid, especially… like even back when I met you. Back in the day I was so fearful of so many things and it’s like God’s tool in my life to have forced me out of that and become a confident woman, and I think the fact that the three of us too have remained so close through all of it. By all accounts we really shouldn’t have. Honestly, it’s opened doors for us to have our entire friend community, the church community, I mean it’s just been… it’s been incredible.

Sarah Ross: So cool! I think aside from, I mean obviously shows and different countries we’ve been to and all of that amazing stuff that comes with touring. I think for me it would be the moment when we became independent and we honestly freaked out and didn’t know what to do and we were here in this building.

Julia Ross: In this room.

Amber Hezlep: Yeah.

Sarah Ross: In this room and we just kind of sat down and we were like okay, what are our individual strengths and how can we make this work. And that was the beginning of our journey of figuring out us women on our own, and also as a team. So… yeah!

Julia Ross: Wow, that’s basically everything. But, we are who we are because of Everlife. I was eight when we started and that’s not even when you start becoming an adult. Like I was still a kid and I’ve learned. I did my Math doing our merchandise, like all of that kind of stuff.

Sarah Ross: That’s so true!

Julia Ross: Like so many things like that. But, I actually did meet Micah my fiancé because of Everlife and I wouldn’t have if it we wouldn’t have been in this band and I wouldn’t have the friends that I have now, which our my life and my second family and the countries that we’ve been to, the people that we’ve got to meet and just speak into there lives. And, I don’t know, it’s so fulfilling. I’m sad because a chapter that is over but I’m so incredibly proud of everything we’ve done and I have no regrets.

Tommy2: Yeah, obviously it’s something you guys can’t do forever, so there’s always that point where you have to look at it and say is this the best time to do it.

Amber Hezlep: Right.

Julia Ross: Exactly.

Sarah Ross: Yep.

Tommy2: Okay, now for each of you what does the future hold. Are you guys going to be staying in town or any business opportunities or ministry’s you’re going to be involved with?

Amber Hezlep: Well we still love each other very much and want to live near each other.

Tommy2: That’s alright, that’s good.

Amber Hezlep: So, I have recently… okay are we going to do shameless plugs now?

Sarah Ross: Go for it.

Amber Hezlep: I recently illustrated my first Children’s Book.

Julia Ross: It’s so good!

Amber Hezlep: My Sister-in-Law is a third grade teacher and felt the need to write about bullying and so I’ve done that, I really love graphic design and I’d love to continue writing with other artists. Sarah and I’ve co-written a lot, actually all three of us have co-written a lot with other artists. Yeah, that’s my thing!

Sarah Ross: Yeah, we’ll always do some kind of thing in music, but for me I am a Personal Trainer now. I figured out I really love to encourage people and to help them start, like come from where they’re at to where they want to be. So I kind of do that with whatever I do. So I’m personal training and I lead worship and also do a lot of short-term missions trips.

Julia Ross: Uhh… I actually work for a on-site hair and make-up company, that’s the thing I’ve been doing for weddings. I’m getting married, I’m very, very, very excited. That’s very weird, we’ve known you for so long and I’m getting married. That’s crazy!

Tommy2: I still remember when I got your invitation for graduation from High School.

Julia Ross: That was here too!

Sarah Ross: Oh my gosh! Yeah, that was here.

Julia Ross: It was here.

Tommy2: I did skip that one, but I’m making good tonight.

Julia Ross: So married, and next year I’ll be starting my own, like a new record and some solo stuff and just venturing and writing with other artists.

Tommy2: Well thank you so much for all the memories and…

Amber Hezlep: Thank you.

Sarah Ross: Thank you Tommy.

Tommy2: I just can’t wait to see what goes down tonight cause it’s gonna be happy, it’s gonna be sad it’s gonna be all of that mushy good stuff, right?

Amber Hezlep: Lot’s of mushy, mushy stuff.

Sarah Ross: I’m getting nervous now.

Everlife concert review, New Releases, Tonight Alive music video for Breakdown, Karmin covers Karate Chop/Sweet Dreams, Denyse Tontz in All My Children, G.I. Joe – Retaliation World Premiere, Toyota introduces i-Road

March 12th, 2013

Last Friday, Everlife performed their final show at The Factory in Franklin, TN. Seats filled up prior to show time as fans from around the country gathered for this special occasion. In addition to Everlife’s new CD At The End Of Everything, merchandise from the past several years was available as well as merchandise banners from years past were on display. Fans were encouraged to sign a blank canvas as well as leaving notes for the band.

Around 7:40pm the lights dimmed and longtime friend/youth pastor Darren introduced the band. It was followed by a three minute video featuring pictures and videos over the years edited by Julia Ross. (This video can now be viewed on YouTube).

The group opened the night with their new song Three Little Girls, Julia played keys while Sarah and Amber provided backing vocals. It didn’t take long to realize this was going to be one last showcase of the Ross sisters phenomenal vocals. After two more songs off of At The End Of Everything Sarah commented on their Disney years by saying “we got to sing some songs that we didn’t write, but they became our own” as they went into I Could Get Used To This (originally by The Veronicas). It was followed by a slowed-down acoustic version of Goodbye.

Early on you could tell that they weren’t delivering a scripted dialogue and the sisters took the liberty to entertain the audience in between songs. They shared horror stories from tours over the years along with many other great memories, in addition to thanking special people involved with the band. In addition to their new music the also set included a great selection of covers that had previously only been played in front of European audiences. Jeremy Hezlep, Amber’s husband joined them to perform guitar on Coming Home, backed by Travis Terrell on violin.

After their 2010 single, What’s Beautiful, Sarah invited their parents John and ‘Mama’ Sue on stage to thank them. Julia took over to say she Googled ways not cry and then Amber told them they loved them beyond all measure. Next, they shared about the huge role Robin Jones played in their career and how grateful they were to have had her as a manager over the last five years.

Following the Thank You’s, Amber shared that they’d be singing Alleluia, a song that went all the way back to their very beginning. The a cappella performance was breathtaking and emotions ran high as Amber, Julia and Sarah joined hands for the final line. It went right into final song of the night, At The End Of Everything and that song just said it all as if it was written for this show.

Stellar performances, a perfect setlist, and tons of emotion made this once in a lifetime show one that will never be forgotten. What a way to finish!

Radio Disney 15 years after the Green light, How To Succeed In Business starring Nick Jonas ends early, Macy’s iHeartRadio Rising Star recap, Pre-order Haley Reinhart’s new album Listen Up! at iTunes, Savannah Outen working on new music for Take A Chance, Ellie Goulding gets a pick on Radio Disney Music Mailbag, Flashback Photo with Maroon 5, Roshon Fegan exits Dancing With the Stars, Big projects ahead for Ashley Tisdale’s Blondie Girl Productions

May 9th, 2012

T2 Exclusive: 15 Years in the making! Here’s a look back at the Radio Disney article by Bruce Horovitz that ran in USA Today on May 9th, 1997. While the station celebrates it’s birthday on November 18th, this date in history is a more important one. Up until this point, Radio Disney was in a test phase and if it had not achieved positive results Disney would’ve pulled the plug on the project. To hear more details about what is was like during this time, be sure to listen to our original interview with Robin Jones, former Radio Disney VP, Programming. #GETREADYFORTHIS

After slow ticket sales last week, it has been announced that How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying starring Nick Jonas will be ending it’s run at the Al Hirschfeld Theater on May 20th. To be fair, the show had one amazing run and no matter who the leading man was, it was only a matter of time before it lost it’s appeal. For more details, head on over to NYTimes.com.

The list is frozen! As we enter the final days, be sure to visit Macys/iHeart.com/Macys/ to vote for your favorite acts.

You can pre-order Haley Reinhart‘s debut album Listen Up! now at iTunes. In addition to ordering the album that will be released on May 22nd, you can also preview 90 seconds of every song.

She’s back in the studio! Savannah Outen is currently recording new music for the film Take A Chance. Not only will she be singing in the movie by Crossing Hollow Films, but will star in it alongside Cassie Scerbo (Make It or Break It).

Last weekend, the song Lights by Ellie Goulding received an 81 percent Pick on the Radio Disney Music Mailbag.

It was fun while it lasted! Last night, Roshon Fegan was eliminated from the cast of Dancing With the Stars. You have to hand it to him for ending with class by saying “I am happy to add ballroom dancing to my super-duper dance moves.” If anything, it’s a reminder that Disney Channel stars don’t have a large enough fan base to win the Mirror Ball despite some amazing performances in the past by Chelsea Kane, Cody Linley, Kyle Massey, Monique Coleman and Sabrina Bryan.

The Hollywood Reporter is at it again. Yesterday, they broke the news that in addition to Ashley Tisdale‘s new Bravo series Miss Advised, her company Blondie Girl Productions is developing three digital web series that she’ll be promoting via Twitter. Later in the day Deadline.com confirmed that ABC Family has entered into a development deal with Blondie Girl Productions detective drama, The Keys, which will include Ashley in a starring role. This girl is still one of the hardest workers in the business!

7pm CST – American Idol: Performance Show (FOX)
The finalists perform for the judges.

7:30pm CST – Suburgatory: The Great Compromise (ABC)
While Tessa tries to adjust to living with Eden, George takes issue with Eden’s parenting; Lisa and Malik consider which camp they should attend.

7:30pm CST – Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie (Disney Channel)
A young wizard conjures a spell that puts her family in jeopardy.
