In 1957, teenagers Phil and Don Everly supercharged the vocal sound of Rock’n’Roll with the sparkling, brotherly harmony that would influence The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, The Beach Boys, The Hollies, Bob Dylan, Peter Paul & Mary, and the Bee Gees, releasing “Bye Bye Love” and “Wake Up Little Susie” in the same year. Now, 60 years later, two acclaimed NYC singer-songwriters — Sean Altman (Rockapella founder, Carmen Sandiego theme song writer, Jewmongous mastermind) and 21-year-old rocker Jack Skuller (winner of the Songwriters Hall Of Fame’s Holly prize in songwriting) — bring the Everlys’ sparkling hits to life: Bye Bye Love, Wake Up Little Susie, Cathy’s Clown, All I Have To Do Is Dream, When Will I Be Loved, Crying In The Rain, Love Hurts, Bird Dog, Claudette, and more classics and rarities.
