Everett Watson’s first musical experience was as a teenager in 1976 when Peter Frampton released Frampton Comes Alive. Like many, Everett was literally blown away by the music, lyrics, and incendiary guitar work. Not long after that, Everett bought his first guitar which was an Ibanez Les Paul copy.
Decades later in 2010 Everett Watson bought tickets for one of Peter Frampton’s concerts in Beaver Colorado at the Valar Center and paid the extra to get backstage passes. Ironically, Everett had just started writing and recording songs in his home studio. After the concert, Everett met Peter and among many of the questions he asked Peter was if he could recommend someone to work with professionally to get some of his songs mastered. Peter told Everett about Chris Kimsey and suggested that he contact him. At that time, Everett had no idea that Chris also engineered Frampton Comes Alive.
Everett contacted Chris via his website and told him a little about himself and the referral he received from Peter and asked Chris if they could do some work together and Chris agreed. Everett was relatively new to the music business and writing songs and Chris coached and mentored him and inspired him to continue writing. Everett never would have believed where this newfound relationship would lead.
In 2020 Everett became inspired to write his first solo album which is titled Politico. Everett performed the instruments and vocals and did the mixing with Chris’s feedback and coaching. Chris produced and mastered the album. The album Politico is now available at all digital outlets.
