Break the Monotony
Conceived in the fall of 1997, Only Everything began as the brainchild of Jim Klosterman. Originally, a part of a Cincinnati based cover band, Jim had aspirations of something greater. Along with the help of lead singer Chris Mouch, an educated vocal major, and Jim's protégé, rhythm guitarist Zach Long, they began to organize the band that has now become Only Everything. Drummer Adam Eilers and bassist Dan Strasser soon were added completing the quintet. Adam having been heavily influenced by early alternative music was a challenging addition to the band's line-up. Dan, who was originally an acoustic guitarist, joined the band on the faith of Jim. Jim had the foresight to see the potential that Dan now exhibits through his bass guitar. The debut album Break the Monotony was created as a concept album and generated local success. The record placed 3rd out of 400 entries in a 102.7 WEBN / Clear Channel contest, attracting media attention, radio airplay, and has driven the band to continue to create incredible original music. In this continued effort, Only Everything is currently working on it's independent sophomore album that is full of new ideas with an added fresh feel to it. The release of Break the Monotony, the ongoing process of recording, and playing the music that they love, Only Everything has just started on it's journey. Described as an eclectic mix of pop, alternative, and rock influences, the name Only Everything is the explanation and the core of the band. Each one of these tight knit members brings with him a diverse background in musical influences and personality traits that enables a type of music to be created that is easy to listen to and hard to forget. With lots of ups and downs in the past, realizing where they have been and the places that they know they need to go, the band has it's eyes on the future. There is enough talent and material to last them ages and the band is ready to take the next necessary steps to become what they know to be the inevitable.
