Jace Everett is an American singer/songwriter/producer based in Nashville, TN. Best known as the writer/artist behind “Bad Things” (the theme song for HBO’s True Blood), Everett is a prolific artist with dozens of TV and film syncs, albums, EP’s and singles.
Jace was signed to Sony Nashville in 2004 and released an eponymous album on the label. Although the album didn’t chart in the mainstream country market, it did include the song “Bad Things”. After enjoying his first #1 radio hit as a writer (Josh Turner’s “Your Man”) and securing the theme placement on True Blood, Everett has been writing, recording and releasing an eclectic body of work in country, rock, and even ambient music. His most recent releases find Everett continuing to explore different styles of writing and production. May 2022 saw the release of Way Down Here, a 5 song EP of songs inspired by his heroes Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits and Nick Cave. In October of 2022, Everett released his second collaboration with Norwegian guitar wizard Amund Maarud. The 6 song EP entitled RAUS is filled with dark, high energy rock inspired by the likes of Iggy Pop and David Bowie.
Performing solo, Jace brings as much humor to the stage as music. His self effacing stage banter undersells the depth and breadth of a world class writer who seems to be having a genuine laugh at himself for the preposterousness of it all. With just a handful of dates in the UK this year before a full band tour in Europe, this is a rare chance to see an American talent that’s genuinely unique and beyond categorization.
