The Everminds is an independent Rock Band living between London and Paris.
Their debut album, to be released in the fall of 2020, was produced and recorded by the band in their studio, on an SSL4000G. As far as mixing is concerned, the band had the privilege to work with Michael Brauer (seven-time Grammy Award winner for Coldplay’s Parachutes, John Mayer, Angelique Kidjo) who mixed the song at MHB studios in NYC. Mastering was done by Joe Laporta at Sterling Sound.
“For us Music is like a slow-cooked recipe, done with time and passion”.
This may not sound like an ultra-modern idea but that’s how The Everminds made their first LP, “Song for everyone”.
Sebastien, Architect by trade and drummer, Laurent, electronic engineer and keyboardist and Eric a business mind with a voice and a few guitars, are 3 longtime friends, three brotherly souls in pursuit of a turtle dream: recreating an iconic analogue studio to allow them to craft the album they always dreamed of.
To fulfill their fantasy they acquired an old dusty SSL 4000 G console, an iconic machine from a different era and worked to adapt it to the 21 st century. They rolled up their sleeves, transformed two garages into a little wooden state-of-the-art vintage studio and started to record and produce 12 songs.
Along the way they were joined by friends: Antoine Reininger, an amazing bass player without whom the foundation wouldn’t be the same; as well as the one-of-a-kind backing vocalist, Susie Webb. Both added their indelible print to our compositions.
The Everminds do not pretend to be seamless, their preference is to let transpire "track bleeds and electric tears" rather than be cursed by an unnatural clinical quantized recording.
Forget “in-the-box recording", they believe emotion comes before perfection. Hence they try hard to capture raw energy in the music they write.
No vocoder, no weird noises coming from everywhere.
Simple and hopefully pure emotion.
