Everett Coast is an acoustic guitar driven duo of woven voices and fused songwriting, founded in early 2011 by singer-songwriters Danny Byrne and Josh Misko. They were introduced by their dear friend & mentor, Anika Paris (Warner Chappell / Universal), while attending Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA. Everett Coast’s influences include legends in the pop, rock, and folk genres such as Simon & Garfunkel, The Everly Brothers, America, Seals & Crofts, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. They have released two self produced EPs: Hey, Hey, California (2013) and Lift Off (2015); both available everywhere from iTunes and Spotify, to Pandora and AMI Jukeboxes. Recently, their songs “Hey, Hey, California” & “Passing Through” were featured in the 2016 film Monumental. On January 8th, 2017 Everett Coast released a new EP called, “The Shel Talmy Sessions.” The Record is Produced by Shel Talmy (The Who, The Kinks, David Bowie), engineered by Johnny Lee Schell (Bonnie Raitt, The Blues Brothers, Taj Mahal) and mastered by Rob Fraboni (Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys). The EP features two new original songs including “Bye Bye Baby” written by John Keller. John has written songs for Wynonna Judd, Etta James and most famously, “Love Is” sung by Brian McKnight and Vanessa Williams. The EP also includes three covers of their favorite 60s classics. Most recently, Everett Coast was featured on the first season of a new Korean reality television show called “Cross Country." The show aired on February 25th, 2017 on major Korean network "MBC Every1”. While on the show, they performed with KPOP stars Yenny (Wondergirls), Suran, Kim Bohyung (SPICA), and actress Hanna Kang. The duo is represented by Aperture Talent Agency for commercial & voiceover opportunities, and past clients include Oregon State University, the California Academy of Sciences, and the Columbus Zoo in Columbus, OH.
"My solid mahogany concert uke is seriously perfection! Not only is it carefully crafted and wonderful to look at, but it's also one of the most beautiful sounding instruments I've ever had the pleasure of playing. It sounds incredible plugged in, mic'd up in the studio or just plain acoustic. It's pretty amazing how an instrument this size can have such a warm full sound on the low end, while maintaining the characteristic woody, sweet brightness of mahogany on the top. Well done, Ohana!
- Danny Byrne
"My Ohana Tenor has been my touring buddy from coast-to-coast. It's playability, tone and feel are everything I look for in a ukulele- both plugged in and acoustic. Not to mention the Flamed Koa is absolutely stunning! Whether you're out on the road playing to thousands of people, or simply strumming by a bonfire- you can't go wrong with an Ohana."
- Josh Misko
Ohana's Bongolele and finger shaker are amazing additions to my percussion setup! The finger shaker effortlessly adds a "high-hat" flavor to my playing. The Bongolele can be played on your lap or on a stand, both of which I love. I enjoy hitting it with my fingers and using brushes or brooms. Experiment with it. Be creative!"

"The Ohana fretted bass is a #1 go-to for learning, and great for travelling. A definite A+ for compactivity & playabilty."
- Stephen Andrews
