Live Photos 2013

Over the last six months we have been easing our way into the Liverpool live scene, and I would like to share the pictures from some of the gigs we have done so far. Thank you so much to Dave Forbes (Zanzibar 8/3), Harry Armytage (LIPA, 9/3) and Dolly Williams (Camp and Furnace, 8/6) for some great shots!

A bit of newsies:

We are currently working on writing new material and planning some exciting new releases for you guys, and we can’t wait to get back on stage in October. But before then there’s a tasty little video coming; made by noone else than Lars Helgeland who among other great things has made this video for Secret Sebastian (which has had a crazy 12 000 views by now!!). It is called How You Suck Me In and will be up in just a few long, warm, Norwegian Summer days. So keep your eyes open.

Speaking of long, warm, Norwegian Summer days; today Dan and I had a nice chat in the sun with John Erik from Hadeland, one of the local newspapers over here that are doing an article on us next week. We took some fun pictures outside my old school, appropriate enough as that is where I first went to music kindergarten when I was 4. It’s nice to look back while thinking ahead, and I am really enjoying being home right now. Soon enough, next week to be exact, we will be going back to Liverpool; to the studio, to the city that birthed us, to Graduation and whatever new things life has in store for Ever Anew. But for another few days, I’m home. For barbecues, singing in the sun and swimming in the fjord. 

Please have a great summer! I hope you like the pictures enough to be excited about the video!

xx, Audrey

Happy Valentine’s Day – with a song. <3

It’s a big day for us this – and I’m not referring to roses or heart shaped chocolates or anything like that, I am of course referring to the latest addition to the Ever Anew family. Hide For Cupid has finally hatched, and I am proud and exited to finally be able to show you guys what’s been brewing in Wapping over the last few months.

We decided it was only appropriate for a love story like Hide For Cupid to be released into the world on Valentine’s Day. I’ve come to think of it kinda like a musical Valentine’s card to everyone I’ve ever shared a laugh with; and yeah, that probably means most of you guys. So take a minute to download a free copy and let me accompany you on your iPods for a little while!

Well… Without further due then, here she is: Hide For Cupid. I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed writing it!


Hide For Cupid 

First, there was laughter 
Then something in his eyes 
She knew that he was different 
Not like them other ties 
He stripped her of her masks 
She let him take them off 
It’s almost like he knew 
Her so-called perfect life made no sense until now 
What’s a girl to do? 

They couldn’t hide, for Cupid and his arrows were too sharp 
Now they swim for their lives and for love in a sea of broken hearts 
They couldn’t hide, for Cupid and his arrows were too sharp 

She is just a woman 
And he is just a man 
They didn’t mean to fall in love 
No, that wasn’t the plan 

They couldn’t hide, for Cupid and his arrows were too sharp 
Now they swim for their lives and for love in a sea of broken hearts 
They couldn’t hide, for Cupid and his arrows were too sharp 

Stupid girl for trading all you’ve built for your own happiness

More than a Dream

The old “AudreyWilsen” website disappeared when the band went from “I” to “we” and changed domains, and so symbolically we start over, with a brand new website and blog to go with the new name. Fresh start and all that. So welcome to the wagon – I hope you’re coming along for the ride. ;-P

Not a lot has been going on this summer. We have done a couple of great acoustic gigs in Norway, sold a few EPs to some very lovely people and even had the EP played on Norwegian radio, and right now we are happy to be back in Liverpool to focus and look ahead. Our last year at LIPA is approaching through the woods with gigantic, noisy troll steps, and come September we will have our hands full getting a live band together and planning the year in a little more detail than the somewhat vague To-Do-List we’ve got going on at the minute…;

  • Get a band together
  • Write new songs
  • Gig a lot

Since Ever Anew has only been “a thing” for the last six months or so, and since this is a brand new blog, why don’t I give you the whole story. The short version of course. The synopsis, if you will. See, Ever Anew is just one chapter in a long story about a girl who just wouldn’t shut up. A story about passion, dreams, love and friendship and, most importantly, about finding yourself, again and again, and realising that you will always be one step ahead of yourself, always looking, ever changing; Ever Anew. To me, it means that no matter how much you change, you always keep a part of “before” with you, and braid it into the new. Many parts, actually. And you need people close to you to remind you who you were, and accept who you’re becomingEver Anew is my story.

There, I went all deep on you. Wasn’t gonna. But you know. What’s a little honesty between friends?

So. What has Ever Anew managed to pull off so far then?

Well, after a whole lot of highs, lows and hard work, there was obviously the EP release – Big success. Not in the commercial sense really, we didn’t in any way sell out all the EPs or draw a massive audience or anything – but that wasn’t the goal either. It was a truly magical night with friends and family in the audience, on stage, and behind the scenes to share and celebrate our Big Day. Which is exactly what we wanted it to be. It really was the day that Ever Anew officially became something more than a dream.
(do you want a copy?)

 

 

 

After the launch of the EP, Dan and I did a couple of acoustic gigs in Norway. I love coming back to the warmth and support of my home town and hearing my songs on the radio (whoopee!), and I am so glad they keep inviting me back to play and share. Best audience ever! This time around we met some cool people, saw some amazing bands, and me personally, I learned that I have a second cousin who sounds EXACTLY like Neil Young. Fancy that.

 

 

That pretty much sums up Ever Anew so far; we can’t wait to get started again and to start gigging properly, with a full band and a box of EPs by our side!

See you there?

Get one! ;-P
