New "Sons of Provo" (featuring "Everclean") website online

February 6th, 2005

Date: 27 November 2003 URL: http://www.halestormentertainment.com/sonsofprovo/index.html We received a note from HaleStorm Entertainment today, telling us, "Here's a sneak peak at 'The Sons of Provo'", along with the following URL: http://www.halestormentertainment.com/sonsofprovo/index.html Some of this is pretty strange, so allow me to interpret... As far as I can tell, "The Sons of Provo" is real CD which you can purchase now which features music which is professionally produced and well-made, but the lyrics are somewhat of a tongue-in-cheek satire of contemporary pop music, as well as contemporary popular LDS music. The CD is identified as a "soundtrack CD," even though it is associated with a mockumentary movie that you've never heard of, but which may or may not actually exit... Two of the three members of the band "Everclean" (a sort of fictional Jericho Road) are Kirby Heyborne and Will Swenson, who previously starred together in both "The Singles Ward" and "The R.M." The names are changed slightly in the website information. Below is text from the actual "Sons of Provo" webpage which is on the HaleStorm Entertainment website, and mirrored with its very own URL on a dedicated website at: http://www.sonsofprovo.com Sons of Provo - HOT New Music Sensation It's the hit music from the soon-to-be breakout band, Everclean. Everclean recently began supervising the production of the feature film "Sons Of Provo"--which features the story of their rise to stardom.. Everclean is breaking all the barriers of hip hop, rap, and pop music with their album for the film. Featuring the talents of Will and Danny Jenson, and Kirby Laybourne, Everclean is sure to replace your old cds of 'Nsync, 98 Degrees, Britney Spears AND Eminem. What the Critics are Saying: "By complete coincidence I happened upon this 'Spiritchal Sensation and a Triple Combination' as I stopped into a Fillmore, Utah Gas N'Git. It was Fall. In the corner of the rusty dining room with a musty smell and a dusty stage, I heard 'EVERCLEAN' sing. They were fresh, they were clean-shaven and they ARE the newest sensation on the Mormon pop charts. If you haven't heard of them yet, watch out and give a listen, cause they're coming at you like a runaway locomotive on greased railroad tracks. 'EVERCLEAN' was created by Provo brothers (and youth-pageant-champions), Will and Danny Jensen. They recently lost their third member, but they've bounced back. Way back. Finding a replacement in Kirby Laybourne, (a scrapbooking specialist at a Provo craft store, who also performs in local community theaters) the three of them make up 'EVERCLEAN' and their music is nothing short of illustrious glory. What's even better, you can hear and see it all in the documentary film that chronicles their meteoric rise to stardom. Their newfound glory never compromises their spirituality. Keep your eyes peeled for their movie, 'SONS OF PROVO' at your local movie theater." --Talmage R. Leavitt, The Provo Semi-Annual Star.
