Early life

In early 1992, Edan Everly signed to Hollywood Records. His band was appropriately named “Edan”. With Julian Raymond on board as producer, the band quickly started recording tracks for their debut release, “Dead Flowers”. It featured players like Al Kooper on Hammed B-3, Tom Petersson (Cheap Trick) on bass and Luis Conte on percussion on songs like “Shot of Your Love”. The Everly Brothers appeared with Edan on “I Want To Be Myself”.

By summer of 1992, the band’s video was shot and the debut CD “Dead Flowers” was released. The band took their organic brand of rock out on the road. They found that hard rock was still the king but grunge was just about to be the newly crowned prince. Any music perceived as outside of the box or as not falling into the “alternative” category was quickly dismissed by most radio stations.

He also wrote songs with Berton Averre (The Knack), collaborated with well-known producer/engineer, Richard Bosworth, and worked with Rick The Base Player Rosas, best known for his work with Neil Young. Another noted musician that Edan has worked with is Bill Spooner (The Tubes). Edan and Bill did a 1950’s music tribute in San Francisco. In a newspaper article Bill said, “I’m taking Edan under my wing.” Edan laid down mandolin tracks for rockabilly guitar God, Duane Eddy. legendary country guitarist Albert Lee was a mentor to Edan Everly.
