In his first directorial debut, Everett drops the visuals for “Shot Through The Heart“, the first single on his latest release Metamorphosis.

In the video, James burns a tank of petrol while taking us on a journey through familiar Atlanta streets in his attempt to fight off a case of the blues that sometimes come from that four letter word that spelled backwards is EVOL.

Majorly heavy drums, lilting auto-tuned vocals over the dusky back drop of the City of Trees, just as it starts getting into it’s infamous nighttime swing?

What could be better? - Bama Love Soul

"Fireside Chat"

"Everett James “Metamorphosis” [ALBUM]"

The latest single by Everett James “Shot Through the Heart” is an electro-soul confession of future blues that pulses with analogue synths and emotion. It has been getting major love around the world, most notably from Gilles Peterson of BBC radio one — who has given it multiple spins.The album which is available at BandCamp for ONLY $5 is a steal, and I recommend picking up a copy. - Leftover Cake

Everett James — Shot Through The Heart (735 Music) - Gilles Peterson Worldwide

"Everett James - Metamorphosis"

I went into this new album with certain expectations and was not disappointed. Metamorphosis signifies change... growth; mostly for the better. Everett displays nothing but this on tracks like "Far Away" and "Better Man". The concept of blossoming and "becoming" will never get old as the theme of this album dictates. That along with solid production makes this overall one of his greatest creations. Check out Metamorphosis today. - This Is Real Music

"Everett James - Shot Through The Heart"

This is usually harder than what I would normally go for but there's something about the driving and pulsing of the synth which makes this really infectious track. The video is self-produced as is the music; Everett James is a talented guy and a name to look out for. See what you think. Gilles Peterson played this one a lot so that's often a good sign! - Good Hair Music

"Gilles Peterson/MachineDrum/Everett James"

Everett James’ ‘Shot Through the Heart’, which is a slow burning soul beast predicated on an analogue bass synth and a simple pad. A little late for the Drive soundtrack, probably due to Everett being “shot in the heart”, it uses a vocoder well in exaggerating emotion, and entertains a repeatedly plunging vocal. Great. - Wonky Carton

"Everett James – Shot Through The Heart"

If you dig this track you will definitely love the album metamorphosis. It’s an amalgamation of soul and electro that’s unlike anything you have ever heard before. Every song on it is gold. - Aerial Noise

Everett James began his musical journey in Asheville, North Carolina. Born in to a musical family he learned the art from his father and performed with his sister throughout his youth. Educated classically and through real world experience, Everett is influenced by a vast variety of artists from Miles Davis, George Clinton, Prince, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, RUN DMC, Tribe Called Quest, to J-Dilla. Live or in the studio, Everett pushes urban music forward and brings the rich legacy of the blues to the future.

His latest venture has been launching the website 735music.com for the purpose of sharing information, building a community, and marketing urban music that is an alternative to what is currently being offered by mainstream media. His latest album "Metamorphosis" is a testament to his willingness to innovate and define urban alternative music.

The concept for Metamorphosis began before the birth of Everett James’ son. Everett felt an evolution within that changed him from what he thought he was into the man he is now. This complete transformation surpassed even what he thought he would become and impacted his songwriting. Everett began the writing process while performing in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The idea behind the sound of the record was to blend live instrumentation, analogue, and digital sounds in a way that was musical. Everett pulled inspiration from seeing the birthplace of humanity in Africa and witnessing his family grow. He hopes you feel the change in the music and the energy of life in every song.

The first single, "Shot Through The Heart" has been getting attention internationally from blogs, DJ's, and tastemakers most notable being the support of the legendary Gilles Peterson and was featured on BBC Radio 1.

Since 2000, Everett has built a catalogue of works that he writes, produces, and performs, and engineers at his hide-away Electronika Studios located in Atlanta, Georgia. Everett plays all the instrumentation on his productions layering instrument track by track. He often plays bass, guitar, keys, and drums through out his projects. He has recorded with George Clinton, toured with Maseo Parker, hit guitar solos on the stage of the Fillmore West, walked the open mics in the NYC village, and played drums through out Europe with Stacy Epps. His most recent accomplishment is completing a 3 month residency in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia performing with the Celebration Club band on Bass. He continues to push forward using his training in music composition to compose for film and his entrepreneurial skills to establish 735 Music in the market as an innovator in urban alternative culture.
