EVER-G, born Everett G. Streete hails from Cash-Hill, Hanover (Parish), Jamaica. His love of life and passion to suceed was evident, since the tender age of 4 where he took every opportunity he could to sing in his neighborhood church or schools. Everett's passion and thirst for growth and knowledge became a reality, at age 12, when he received a full scholarship to Rusea's High School. His passion for learning continued there as did his lust of music. At age 15, he was playing the guitar and by age 16 he was the lead vocalist in the school's band. Everett continued his string of successes with his acceptance to college, where he graduated from the Jamaica School of Agriculture (JSA) with a Diploma & Teacher's Certificate and the additional titles of lead vocalist, guitarist and keyboardist for his college band.
Everett, now known as EVER-G, was fortunate to complete his first recording at Bob Marley's Tuff Gong Studio in Kingston, Jamaica. He later fulfilled his dream as the lead singer of the band "Children of Jah".

To give you a glimpse of a few of EVER-G’s songs and their Message:
WORLD PEACE - Something that we all want and need desperately is expressed in this song.
JAH CREATOR AND FATHER – Jah is always there to guide, protect and take care of us.
MISS BEAUTIFUL - Tells the story about his Mom's love; she would always tell him to be strong and follow his dreams.
LIFE - The precious thing we all deal with each and every day.
TAKE A LOOK - Calls to remind us of the small, magical wonders that Mother Nature provides all around us every day.
WHAT’S UP WITH THE WORLD? – With so much chaos and strife around these days, EVER-G poses the question and then reposes it with an interesting twist, What’s up with humanity? (Maybe the world is just fine.)
MY QUEEN – The basic requirements for an upful match for G:“An upful, conscious woman is truly a blessing to a Man. If you wanna be my queen, you have to love Jah Jah, and if you wanna be my queen you have to know yourself; if you want to be my queen you have to respect yourself; and if you wanna be my queen, you have to love yourself…”
