A new addition to the files “for those who have ears to hear”. Recommended by a good friend, I have listened to their music catalog and found them to be worthy of mention here on my site.
The band has been playing together for 6 years, after forming during high school in the area surrounding Chattanooga, Tennessee. With a pop rock sound abounding, their songs naturally lead to powerful performances rife with energy. During live performances, the band seems to connect with people on more of a heart-level; the kind of emotionally-charged moment that one rarely forgets.
With emotionally-laced lyrics and the predominant use of piano – an instrument that played an important part of Nevertheless’s sound during its independent days. It reaches into the soul and grabs the listener. “We feel like it’s a lot easier to just write heavy songs than it is to sincerely express a message. A piano has a way of really capturing a listener, and we find that it brings out emotions better than a guitar.” says Cheek. “We intentionally sought to progress in how our record would sound this time. It’s not a complete departure from the last records’ sound, but more an accent of it, with a bit more depth of emotion.”
It is with this song “REST” that it truly captures the soul and points the listener to Jesus Christ. Sit back and have a good listen to a band called NEVERTHELESS…it will be well worth your time.
Thanks for the recommendation, Preston, you have great taste in music.
