NeverEverThe NeverEver Band is a quartet of experienced musicians performing original music that’s perfect for intimate settings as well as easily danceable. We perform without drums so we require only a small stage and we incorporate acoustic and electric instruments to create a dynamic sound that’s appropriate for a variety of audiences and venues. Featuring Eugene’s favorite musical twins, Kriss Crowley and Kathy Burleson, also known as the “Mithrandir Twins”, the NeverEver Band presents sophisticated songcraft with humorous and heartfelt lyrics. Barry Burleson’s rich and commanding voice is a balanced counterpoint to the twins’ sweet harmonies. Ralph “Slim” Novak provides a solid bass foundation and second guitar accompaniment. Dual violins, mandolin, viola, electric and acoustic guitars, and bass are the instrumental complement to the enchanting vocal harmonies. Based out of Eugene, Oregon, The NeverEver Band is a group of accomplished musicians who also just happen to be very good friends.
“The Twins”, Kathy and Kriss, write the original songs and keep things lively by having at least two or three new projects ready to be set free in rehearsal. Several years ago, the enchantingly beautiful songs just started coming and have never stopped – the sisters couldn’t be happier! Written in an “indie/folk-rock” genre with non-traditionalNeverEver instrumentation, each song has a flavor of it’s own. The NeverEver Band performs either as a full-acoustic ensemble, or, with electric augmentation. Strong solo voices, double violin lines, unique guitar accompaniment, and tight vocal harmonies by the Twins add color and excitement to the mix, creating a refreshingly different listening experience. The NeverEver Band is a showcase for the beautiful voices and charming original songs of the Twins. Their songs delight listeners, featuring a spectrum of fun, uplifting melodies and heart-warming personal experience.
Kathy Burleson and Kriss Crowley, “the Twins”, appeared primarily with the popular group “Mithrandir” for fourteen-plus years during the late 1970’s – 80’s.
