Dann and Jon Hume (Evermore)

The three Hume brothers of Evermore have come a long way since the release of their debut album Dreams - with over 300 live shows, an MTV Video Music Award, a NZ Music Award, an APRA Silver Scroll, five ARIA nominations and a platinum record on the wall of their home studio. It's a far cry from their humble and rain-drenched beginnings in rural New Zealand, and it all culminates in their latest album, Real Life.

Keeping true to their rural roots, they recorded Real Life in the oldest studio still operating in the US, Longview Farm. Artists such as Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones and Aerosmith have all frozen their butts off there in the past.

Allowing themselves freedom was also high on the agenda, with the two younger Humes contributing to the songwriting a lot more heavily than on Dreams. “Instead of me writing almost everything, we suddenly had three writers coming up with a lot,” Jon says. “We could have made two albums simultaneously.”

“Dann wrote nearly a song a day,” echoes Peter. “He had over one hundred songs - which is insane! We definitely didn't have a lack of songs.”

“We're the kind of band that is going to change with every record,” adds Jon. “We will always sound like us, but we'll utilise our strengths as three writers.”
