Exclusive interview with FourEver.
Jarrod, Chris, Brad & Brett make up the band FourEver.
Their sound is organic pop blended with slick production elements; One Direction meets the Eagles. They are all under 20 years old, but their harmonies, stage presence and musicality would have you believe they've been around a little while longer. "FourEver now" is their debut single.
You can check out their debut video here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=e5Pb1xsDq9o
