Hello! HUGE fan here!

Postby EvershineDan » Sun Jan 16, 2011 2:44 pm

My name is Dan Reed, guitarist and backup vocalist of
the northern Michigan based band Evershine.
Just wanted to register and be a part of this forum.
Jake E. Lee is without question the biggest influence on
my playing.
I was a drummer, then I went to a party somewhere around
1986 where someone was playing the Ultimate Ozzy video
on VHS. I walked in right as Jake started his solo.
Sold my drums and bought a guitar.

Anyway, if anyone's interested in hearing my stuff, it's at:
http://soundcloud.com/evershindan

This one I wrote always reminds me a bit of Jake's
sound and style during the Badlands Voodoo Highway
era: http://soundcloud.com/evershinedan/shine-bright

My wife is my singer.
And here's a recent video of us:

It's been almost 25 years since I saw Jake's solo
for the first time. Still gives me chills.

I also wanted to post this video.
My wife and I wrote this song in dedication to
ALL U.S. Troops, past and present.

My solo was very Jake-influenced!

Thanks Doobie.

Evershine Dan, the song 'Cruel But Kind' is major kick ass IMO. Your wife has a very pretty voice but, it's almost too "pretty" for that song. I mean no offense by saying that! The song is so hard it just needs a raspier vocal. Just my opinion, though! Keep rockin'!!

Don't I know it!! When we wrote that particular song, and a few others, she was balls out in rasp and power. Our producer asked that she lighten her vocals throughout the album, especially on that song, and appeal to a broader audience.
It kills her that she sings this song so lightly.

He also asked that I lighten my solos, and be more melodic.
So I did..
