“So much of my heart is in my music. If you pay close attention to the lyrics, you can get a much better perception of who I am when my guard is down.” ~ Bethany Joy Galeotti
Everly is what became of two friends, Bethany Joy Galeotti and Amber Sweeney, deciding to collaborate and share their passion for music and storytelling. Galeotti and Sweeney have been writing songs individually for as long as they can remember. In 2008, they decided to use their long-time friendship for the greater good and created Everly, realizing that two songwriters are better than one. According to Galeotti and Sweeney on the release of Mission Bell, “Everly is birthed of a friendship and a sisterhood that’s been many years in the making, and we are proud to present this short collection of music as a “teaser” for what is to come.” Everly is signed with Hilasterion Records—and is set to record a full length album some time this year.
Galeotti has also performed a string of original tracks on One Tree Hill due to her character’s ambitions to reestablish her music career. In the seventh season of One Tree Hill, Galeotti re-released Quicksand, a song originally written and performed by Galeotti for her album with Epic. This performance kicked Haley James Scott’s music journey and was immediately followed by her first solo tour Flying Machine. In the fictional tour, songs written and performed by Everly were featured on the show while concurrently being released through iTunes and CD Baby. At present, Everly continues to use One Tree Hill as an avenue to promote their latest music.
