Biography

Camee Burdin is a true soul vocalist who has the talent that penetrates your very core. She is a senior at Greenville College, majoring in Christian Contemporary Music with a triple emphasis in Studio Recording, Worship Arts, and Vocal Performance. Camee grew up in Elkhart, Indiana but then moved to Lebanon, Missouri with her family. When she is not singing (which is hardly ever) she enjoys writing lyrics, mentoring the local youth in Highland, Illinois, creating miscellaneous crafts, and practicing as an "uncertified" beautician. Her bouncy, encouraging nature always keeps the group on their toes.

Ana Lena Copeland has fingers of a pro, with the ability to truly make her guitar sing. She comes from a unique background, the oldest child in a missionary family from Ethiopia. Her parents now live in St. Paul, Minnesota with her four siblings. Ana Lena is a junior at GC, majoring in Studio Recording. She has been singing since she was a little girl, and played guitar since her young teenage years. Her long-time commitment to music shows through her guitar talent and low sultry voice. Besides writing music Ana Lena also enjoys playing volleyball, participating in the church youth group, painting, drawing, and listening to music. Her very dry sense of humor adds a needed element to the group.

Jake Augenstein is the only gentleman of the group, and the youngest member of EverAsh; yet he definitely holds his own. With almost 7 years of experience as a player, he looks up to Victor Wooten, Stuart Hamm, and Norm Stockton. Though quiet and calm, Jake takes time and energy to understand the music and put everything he has into it. Jake is a rocker boy who enjoys many different types of music, including everything from Mozart and Lizst to Crazy Frog. He attends GC as a freshmen, majoring in Christian Contemporary Music. When he is finished with college Jake intends to play on stage or make his career as studio musician.

Kayla Spangler is the farm girl of the bunch. She grew up showing cattle, rabbits, and all sorts of other animals. She also comes from a very musical background. As of now, she is finishing up her senior year at GC as a Music Education major. Kayla has played keys for almost 14 years, along with playing flute and singing. In her free time (haha... what free time?) she enjoys watercolor painting, reading, working as a youth pastor intern at Faith Baptist Church, and spending time with her friends. She has a habit of breaking glass objects that her roommates own, but also knows how to make people smile.

Lyrics

Charade

Written By: Ana Lena Copeland, Camee Burdin

I followed you
Walked right into your arms
I never thought to question
Or ask for more
You had it down
Every step planned out
Did you ever think
Someone's life might drown

I trusted you
I let you hold my heart
My hopes, my dreams
Have fallen apart
Don't hold your breath
I've walked away
Won't be back to your charade

I know the truth
Your lies can't stop me now
I never thought to fight
Or turn my face
I won't back down
And I will not drown
Did you ever think
All your lies could crash down

I trusted you
I let you hold my heart
My hopes, my dreams
Have fallen apart
Don't hold your breath
I've walked away
Won't be back to your charade

Look beyond your four walls
People live and breathe the air
Look inside their broken hearts
Why can't you come to them

I trusted you
I let you hold my heart
My hopes, my dreams
Have fallen apart
Don't hold your breath
I've walked away
Won't be back to your charade

Never Say "I Love You"

Written By: Ana Lena Copeland, Camee Burdin

Last night tears painted my face
These colors can't be erased
Come dawn all I had was gone
Don't tell me you let me down slow

Never say "I love you"
Like I once did
Forget saying "I miss you"
Cuz you're obligated
I don't want to hear
The things you should say
Instead I want to hear that
I'll be okay
Never say "I love you"

Don't break down like you have planned
Your tears to me are gone and dead
You walked out
And I'll be fine with that
Don't crawl, I won't take you back

Never say "I love you"
Like I once did
Forget saying "I miss you"
Cuz you're obligated
I don't want to hear
The things you should say
Instead I want to hear that
I'll be okay
Never say "I love you"

Give and take is what they say
But you take all that I give
Love and hate, another day
I'll take my chance to live

Never say "I love you"
Like I once did
Forget saying "I miss you"
Cuz you're obligated
I don't want to hear
The things you should say
Instead I want to hear that
I'll be okay
Never say "I love you"
