About Us

Leon Everette

 

Leon Everette was born in Aiken SC. As a small boy he moved to Queens NY where he was raised. In 1968 while serving in the Navy in Viet Nam, Leon entered and won a Navy sponsored talent contest. This was the beginning of Leons music career.

After a move to Ward, SC Everette formed a part time band and started playing locally. After repeated trips to Nashville he got a job in the mail room at True Records.  Leon then partnered with Carroll Fulmer of Orlando Records. Which lead to his His first record to make the top ten Billboard Charts "Over". This led to a recording contract with RCA in 1980 which garnered 11 straight top ten records. One of those songs being "Hurricane" which peaked at #1. The song was so popular in Louisiana that he served as the Grand Marshall of Mardi Gras. Everette's popularity then led to his being the first country artist ever to perform in Italy. He was nominated for new male vocalist of the year in 1981, had one of the biggest selling records of the year “Give Me What You Think Is Fair” in 1983, and his band (Hurricane) won traveling band of the year in 1983. He was also one of the first country artist to perform at Wimberley Stadium in London England.

To many fans Leon Everette's strongest attribute was his high energy when   performing live. A Leon Everette performance seemed to have the energy of a "Hurricane". Never one to just stand around, strum a guitar and sing. In the   mid 1980's, suffering from burn out, Everette retired from the music industry and moved back to Ward, SC where he became involved with several business endeavors.

In 1997, Everette came to know the Lord Jesus Christ. He has since devoted his life to the Lord and his church. He and his lovely wife Diane are mainstays in their church “Faith Riders Fellowship Church” located in Aiken SC. Much to the delight of those who loved his music, Leon started performing and recording country gospel music in his own recording studio “The Tool Shed” with many of his former musicians. They are all dedicated to spreading Gods word through their music. He is using the talent and energy that went into his country music career to now uplift and praise God.

The first part of 2016 Leon was invited back to Nashville by a former friend and business college Jimmy Adams and Little David Wilkins. Little David had just written a gospel song “I Stand the Tallest When I’m Down on My Knees”. The great mind of Jimmy Adams thought this would make a phenomenal hit by paring Little David and Leon together to record this song. This lead to a management deal with Jimmy Adams & JAM Social Media Group. Thanks to Jimmy Adams, Little David Wilkins & the JAM Team media specialist Leon has now taking off on his 2nd career. You can watch Leons videos and his label mates on www. itube247.com . You can also hear Leon on traditional country Radio Stations and Gospel Stations, thanks to longtime friend & record executive CEO Charlie Ammerman for releasing his songs on Pretty World/ CBR Records

Leon says, " Now I'm Having More Fun with Jesus In MY Band"
