The Eversound Record Label Company Profile: Read about the award-winning artists of Eversound Records and their newest albums.
It is our pleasure to introduce you to EverSound, a record label committed to producing heartfelt, timeless music by talented artists from around the world.
EverSound’s variety of new age music ranges from instrumental to soft rock, including world and smooth jazz. The label’s versatile artists have produced cinematic music for television and film industries as well.
The lineup of popular artists includes John Adorney, Diane Arkenstone, Ron Clearfield, Michael Whalen, John Mills, Curtis Macdonald, Lino, Manuel Imán and other talented artists.
John Adorney, the label’s top-selling act, is an award-winning composer and producer whose solo albums have garnered glowing reviews by music critics around the world.
John Adorney began studying music at the age of 9. Although his first instrument was the cello, within two years he’d also learned the guitar, profoundly influenced by the Beatles and British Invasion they launched.
He additionally learned the piano and went on to study classical music. By the 1990s Adorney was composing contemporary instrumental material.
John Adorney went on to release several solo albums including Beckoning (1998) and The Other Shore (2002), many of which laid the foundation for the genre through the 2000s as they quickly rose to the top of the New Age radio airplay charts. Adorney’s latest release, The Wonder Well, shows no sign of the composer slowing down anytime in the near future.
EverSound also recently signed the youngest new artist in the genre, 21-year-old wunderkind Nitish Kulkarni. Kulkarni is a rising artist in the instrumental scene and his sound has been likened to that of Yanni.
Influenced by his Indian heritage and American upbringing, Nitish’s music incorporates musical instruments and styles from all around the world. Kulkarni and Adorney teamed up to produce his debut album Synesthetic, which blends together electronic and acoustic sounds from over 50 different musical instruments!
The music critics have been raving about the new album Synesthetic. “This is an artist that has the potential to become a star,” New Age Music Odyssey’s BT Fasmer writes. “Kulkarni’s debut album Synesthetic shows exceptional talent. Without a doubt the most promising debut album in the New Age music genre since year 2000.”
Music reviewer Michael Debbage from Mainly Piano writes, “Synesthetic screams sleeper hit for 2014. By the end of the year, many will be speaking highly of Kulkarni and his solo debut album.”

Performed Live Concert Review – The 15th Anniversary Concert: The Artists of Eversound Live 2012.
With the end of 2012 nearing, it will soon be my privilege to write several music award publications about the best new albums sent to me for review this year. With the ongoing count of nearly 200 CD album mailings sent to me for possible review this year alone and overwhelming number of superb albums to choose from making a decision is not going to be an easy task for one person to make.
The Artists of Eversound – LIVE!! 15th Anniversary Concert by music category alone is one of the most exclusive album selections from the rest by the total count of outstanding artists on one live concert album. The Artists of Eversound is a live compilation album featuring Eversound Label artists performing 12 songs during a live evening concert event in Santa Barbara, California during 2012. It’s a special song sampler of the very best the Eversound team has produced to date!
Every artist has their own individual style naturally, but if I were to make a statement in general regarding the entire artist directory it would include the quality of their instrumental skills and artisanship as a whole. Rarely do you find the universal characteristics of consistently beautiful melodies, upbeat rhythms and all-inclusive selection of wonderful vocalists like heard on the 15th Anniversary Concert album. With all things considered, presenting this quality group was an easy choice to make after all. With Christmas and the holiday gift giving season right around the corner, may I recommend the convenient and inexpensive gift of music to friends and family.
