XRadio Featured Artists of the Month for January is Everafter! This UK rock band burst onto the East London scene in Autumn 2010, as brothers Alexis Daperis (lead vocals/guitars) and Stefan Daperis
(bass/backing vocals) teamed with their friend Tim Wiltshire (drums) launched the three-piece power rock group, Everafter. By February 2011 the first gig was booked at The White Hart Hotel in New Cross, South London. Over the next few years Everafter honed their live performances by playing key venues in London, including Water Rats in King’s Cross, The Half Moon in Putney and The Standard Music Venue in Walthamstow. It was over this period that Everafter wrote the songs and defined the set that would become their debut album, “Everything Is One”. In September 2013, the band were signed to independent label Hummdrumm Records.
The band’s main influences include Nirvana, Metallica and Green Day. “Everything Is One” also benefited from the production prowess of the Grammy-nominated Chris Tsangarides, an Everafter fan that produced the likes of Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath and Judas Priest. Following the release of the band’s first album and a succession of gigs, Everafter played a show to the inmates inside Wormwood Scrubs prison,
In Spring 2019, with new drummer and friend Ivan Sheppard, Everafter completed their second album: “Remember”. The band moved into a heavier direction with the latest studio recordings and the album showcases the strength and diversity of the band’s song writing. This time Everafter collaborated with producers Raz Olsher, Andrea Gottardo and the late Chris Tsangarides to create a powerful ten track album, paving the way for the band’s place in rock history. Over the last year they have been incorporating the new songs into their set and getting airplay on TotalRock Radio and Trust The Doc Radio Show on Exile FM.
