Producer/songwriter duo Gordon Huxter and Jon Pike are shaking things up in their hometown of St. John’s. Bringing a fresh blend of alt pop and radio ready production, the pair are making a name for themselves as a band to watch since their inception in early 2014.
Friends and musical collaborators since high school, Jon (22) and Gordon (21) are the two halves that make up “Everglow”. No strangers to the Atlantic Canadian music scene as former frontman/songwriter for RocketRocketShip, and having completed a program in music production at the Sonic Temple in Halifax, these two found common ground in a shared passion for highly accessible song crafting and exhilarating live performance.
Releasing their debut single “Outside Looking In” for the 2014 CBC Searchlight Competition and reaching the Regional Top 10, the pair found themselves at the start of a highly successful first year. Receiving provincial funding for an album, being chosen to showcase for industry professionals at MusicNL Week, performing in front of hundreds (as well as thousands of views on their YouTube page), and garnering media attention including a full page spread in The Telegram (premier local newspaper) made for a strong start. Just to top it off, Everglow finished strong after being asked by young fan Abby Quigley, through the Children’s Wish Foundation, to write and record a song with her, granting her wish in December of 2014.
Following a highly successful first year, the duo released their debut album “Ocean Season” in February 2015.
Currently on an eight month, cross Canada tour with the Live Different non-profit organization, Everglow have also showcased for both Canadian Music Week and East Coast Music Week in 2015. Their single “Feel Your Heart” reached #93 on the Canadian CHR chart and the duo are currently working on songs for their sophomore release.
