Once best known for his tenure in the rap unit House of Pain, Everlast successfully reinvented himself in 1998 with the best-selling Whitey Ford Sings the Blues, a largely acoustic, hip-hop-flavored effort in the genre-crossing mold of Beck. Born Erik Schrody, Everlast first surfaced in Los Angeles as a member of Ice-T's Rhyme Syndicate Cartel, issuing his debut album, Forever Everlasting, in 1990. When the album failed to find an audience, he formed House of Pain with Danny Boy and DJ Lethal; carving out an image which drew heavily on Everlast and Danny Boy's shared Irish heritage, the trio managed to overcome the stereotypes facing white rappers and scored a massive hit with their 1992 single "Jump Around." Their self-titled debut LP also went platinum, but when such follow-up efforts as 1994's Same as It Ever Was and 1996's Truth Crushed to Earth Shall Rise Again failed to repeat House of Pain's early success, the group disbanded.

Everlast then returned to his solo career. While recording Whitey Ford Sings the Blues, however, he suffered a massive cardiac arrest stemming from a congenital defect, resulting in heart bypass surgery and an artificial valve implant. Following his recovery, he completed the album, which appeared in the fall of 1998 to strong commercial notices. It entered the Top Ten, went platinum, and launched the pervasive Top 40 single "What It's Like." After appearing on Santana's vaunted comeback album Supernatural, Everlast began work on a follow-up album with an eclectic group of guest artists. Titled Eat at Whitey's, the album was released in late 2000, and enjoyed critical notice (even if it wasn't quite as succesful as Whitey Ford). Everlast then signed with Island/Def Jam before releasing the the moody, song-driven White Trash Beautiful in 2004. The album featured a strong country influence, but its new sound failed to boost Everlast's record sales. He was dropped from the label soon after, but Everlast bounced back by joining his House of Pain alums in a hip-hop supergroup named La Coka Nostra. The group released several recordings via MySpace in 2008; that same year, Everlast issued his fifth studio album, Love, War and The Ghost of Whitey Ford, on his own label. The album featured a cover of Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues," which Everlast released as a single.

Everlast's latest album entitled "The Life Acoustic" was relesed in the fall of 2013 and is now availble on itunes.

Angels Cut

Angels CutLocal and melodic hard-rockers Angels Cut have that kind of momentum that many new bands can only dream of. Songs from their debut LP are getting played on the radio, they've recently played shows with Hank 3 and Black Flag founder Greg Ginn and others.

The band's debut 12-song LP has a nice blend of distorted, head-banging, mid-tempo and riff-driven hard-rock tracks coupled with just the right amount of sincere, emotional guitar ballads filled with tangible fluidity. It's reminiscent much more of a sophomore effort. With riffs that sound like a sludgy version of Brett Gurewitz of Bad Religion, drumming similar to Sean Kinney of Alice in Chains and the vocal timbre of Glenn Frey of the Eagles, these guys are going places. The lyrics heard on the Rob Seifert Gage-produced LP are representative of everyday life experience here in Humboldt -- the good, the bad and everything in-between.

”I wish I could say it was a harrowing airplane crash or a wicked breakup or an old-school bar fight or whatever, but in reality it's the culmination of all of who you are -- even the seemingly boring or mundane,” Blue said. “The key for me is to just be as honest as possible, get into the headspace of that particular groove and put in the hours.”
