The best kept secret in music


"INsite Magazine May 2006"

"...late February I got my hands on Everywhere, Everything, Everytime. I popped it in my CD player and was amazed... This is one fantastic album. It consists of five electric tunes followed by five acoustic songs recorded under Dave Dreesen at Jacketweather Studios. The first five tracks show the heavy side of this band. The title track kicks everything off with a bang and the next four tracks reaffirm these folks can lay a rock record down with the best of them. One of the rockers, “We All Go To Pieces,” has a creeping bassline and Lead singer Christine Ely’s vocals are stellar. “You have always seen the me that no one else will dare to see. Driven from my past I shattered everything I need to be. We all go to pieces…” When song number six starts, the album goes acoustic. “Memory” is a fast-paced acoustic guitar- driven song with a Dave Matthew’s Band vibe to it. “Sunday Song” makes a hangover sound sexy, and the final track, “Autumn Leaves” introduces a jazzy side to the group.

Ely has a Pat Benatar quality to her vocals. Beautifully powerful. Along with Ryan Redfern’s bass, Dave Gilbert’s Guitar and Mills’ drums, Bag 100’s debut CD an enjoyable ride from second one to minute forty. I can highly recommend picking Everywhere, Everything, Everytime up. After seeing them perform live in mid-March, I can also recommend their live shows. Ely has quite the stage presence. Oh and the name? I did a little homework and found that the name was that because the band rose from the ashes of two bands — 100 Days and Bag. I guess Bag 100 is better than Bag Days…. But it does this fantastic foursome no justice either way. Find out more about Bag 100 at A+ (SC) TWO HOOTS"

Full bio:
Formed in the spring of 2003 by Christine Ely, Ryan Redfern, and then bassist Scotty MC, the band was originally intended to be an acoustic trio that would play songs from their now defunct bands 100 Days and Bag. However, after a handful of coffee-shop gigs and some networking with local bands, the desire to rock got the best of them, and the trio hooked up with drummer Ben Mills of Austin's Nooner. A few new original tunes and high-energy rock gigs later, they recruited Dave Gilbert, a longtime 100 Days fan, as their new lead guitarist. With strong roots in the Texas music scene, the band easily transitioned into gigging regularly and was able to perfect their stage show, allowing Christine do what she does best as a dynamic front person and stage performer. After a mutual and heartfelt goodbye, Scotty MC chose to part ways with the band so that he could pursue a new career path, and the stage was set for Bag100 to take their next step with Ryan now on bass.

Their next step was clear. They needed to produce a CD. During the summer and fall of 2005, the band embarked on a recording journey that brought their concept of a half electric, half acoustic album to life. Those sessions with producer David Dreesen at Jacketweather Records in Austin are what evolved into their 10-song debut CD, Everywhere Everything Everytime. The album is a rocker drenched in guitar, drive, heart, and hooks, and it moves easily from the rock angst of the title track all the way through to the beautiful acoustic album closer, "Sweet Salvation." Not to go unnoticed as well-rounded musicians, the band even throws in a jazz cover as a throwback to their coffee-shop beginnings.

This is a band that is ready for anything, anytime, anywhere. They rock. They keep the crowd engaged with their energetic live shows, and even through the heart-felt words, to which they hope people can relate, they definitely keep the whole package exciting and fun.
