Christian Band We Love: Everfound

We love finding new music to share with you girls, so we’re super excited to introduce one of our new favorite bands, Everfound! Have you heard of them?

The group is made up of four Russian-born brothers now living in Denver, Colorado. They have an awesome story, as their parents learned about and accepted Jesus after hearing the gospel on the radio stations set up by American missionaries before the fall of the Soviet Union. Their great uncle spent 20 years in prison for owning a Bible. These tough situations helped inspire them to boldly share their love of God through music. “The fact that our music is clearly heard all around the world,” says Nikita Odnoralov, the band’s lead singer and keyboardist, “[is] truly humbling.”

Though the Odnoralovs had always enjoyed music and grew up with instruments, the actual formation of the band happened naturally. After attending a church that didn’t have a worship band, the brothers played a battle of the bands and started getting calls from local churches about playing. The band really took off and began to evolve.

“When we wrote songs about [our] experiences, people connected to them,” Ruslan, one of the brothers, says. “People began to write us letters telling us, ‘I feel like a misfit in my class’ or ‘I’m not accepted by people in my school.’ We started to get more and more letters. God started showing us that this is what we’re supposed to be doing.”

Taking inspiration from their family history and the letters they were receiving, the band funneled their experiences into their music and took it to the people, producing four albums to date. “As Christians, what do we exist for?” Nikita asks. “Jesus said love your neighbor and love God. If those kids didn’t write those letters, we wouldn’t be here. We want to provide an experience for our audience that’s impactful. We want to take them on a journey with us. That’s why we strive to give 110 percent every night on stage. At a show, we want our fans to feel and experience the low valleys and the high peaks that inspired our songs in the first place.”

So where might you have already heard them? Their song “What Love Means” was included on the “inspired‐by” soundtrack of the History Channel miniseries The Bible, and they also played at a kickoff event for Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church. Afterward, Warren tweeted, “Mark my word: This band is going to be HUGE!”

Hear them tell their story here:

    I adore Everfound! I saw them in concert with Sanctus Real on the Run tour, and they were so amazing. I was standing close to the stage, and the lead singer walked up to me and held my hand while he sang! It was awesome, and I got pictures and autographs with them afterwards, they were so sweet!

    I was at a Dare2Share conference this past February, and that was when I was introduced to them (and the first time that I was really at a Christian concert of that size.) I sang their song “Never Beyond Repair” for my school’s talent show last school year.
    One time after that, I was listening to our local Christian radio station, and the song “Never Beyond Repair” came on. I recognized the song immediately. Then the Skillet song “American Noise” came on right after that, and that only strengthened my opinion that Everfound and Skillet should do a collaboration (or collaberation; I don’t know how to spell it).

      I saw them at a Dare to Share conference earlier this year. They led worship and had a concert. I like their music, but unfortunately did not have enough money to buy a CD. 🙁 I hope to see them come out with more music soon. 🙂

    So glad you ladies featured my favorite band on here! I’ve been a fan for a few years, when their music really wasn’t as well known, but I’m happy they have gotten this far in their career and continue to grow and have more and more fans who support them. Thanks so much for the great article and the video!
