In the mid-1990s, former House of Pain singer Erik Schrody created the hit band Everlast. A mixture of rap and blues, Schrody’s project won over fans of every genre. Working with Ice-T, in 1990 Everlast released his first solo album Forever Lasting. The album was not a success; however, the roadblock didn’t stop Schrody from accomplishing his goals. Gigging in the Northeast, Schrody continued performing until joining with House of Pain members, DJ Lethal and Danny Boy. The group signed with Tommy Boy records and began work on their first album. The record sold millions of copies, due in large part to hit song, “Jump Around.” After touring with popular bands Rage Against the Machine and The Ramones, Schrody created a second solo album.
In 1999, Everlast released their popular record, Whitey Ford Sings the Blues. The album became a monumental success, selling over 3 million copies worldwide. Several songs on the record topped album charts; yet, none captured listeners like “What it’s Like.” After it released, Everlast’s popularity began to grow leading to more lucrative opportunities. Later that year, Everlast collaborated with legendary guitarist Santana. Their single “Put Your Lights On,” earned them a Grammy and garnered much attention from fans. After a big year, the soloistdropped his highly anticipated solo album, Eat at Whitey’s.
Unfortunately, the record released and received mixed reviews. Fans took to the music at a slow rate; yet, changed their position after it went gold. Critically, the album scored big points with Rolling Stone Magazine. The prestigious entertainment source named Eat at Whitey’s one of the top records of the month.
Schrody spent the next several years in a heated feud with rap-star, Eminem. The controversy continued until both musicians agreed to leave the issue alone. In 2006, Schrody rejoined ex-band members DJ Lethal and Danny Boy to form La Coka Nostra. The group released a few singles and worked with several famous recording artists, including Snoop Dog and Bun B.
In 2008, the talented singer dropped his fifth album, Love, War and the Ghost of Whitey Ford. The record contained a country-rap sound that received modest reviews. Everlast toured after the release and, in 2011 dropped his sixth record, Songs of the Ungrateful Living. The music resembled work Schrody had done in the past with added maturity. Finally, in 2013 Everlast’s most current album, The Life Acoustic, hit the shelves.
