Evaride is a pop/rock duo made up of Sean Michael Murray and Hayden Maringer. Their highly anticipated debut EP, Vol. 1 was released in the fall of 2019. It featured their electrifying single “Warrior,” which was most recently featured in promos for the NBC 2021 Tokyo Olympics and on the TODAY Show with Hoda and Jenna. You might also recognize the song as the title track for the video game MLB RBI 2K19, or from the Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson-hosted TV show The Titan Games – The Rock loved the song so much, he gave Evaride a personalized shout-out on Twitter. The band’s adrenalizing music has also been heard during the Stanley Cup Finals, NCAA’s March Madness, and featured on World of Dance with Jennifer Lopez.
With the perfect combination of raw talent, enduring drive, soaring vocals and rhythmic guitar riffs, Evaride has already garnered the attention of some of the music industry’s best. On their EP, Vol. 1, Evaride worked alongside several top producers, including Gregg Wattenberg (Train, Goo Goo Dolls, Gavin DeGraw, Daughtry, Phillip Phillips), Colin Brittain (All Time Low, 5 Seconds of Summer, Dashboard Confessional), Doug Rockwell (Hollywood Records, New Hope Club, Marvel Rising, Sabrina Carpenter), as well as Grammy Award-winning mix engineers Chris Lord-Alge (Green Day), and Claudius Mittendorfer (Panic! at the Disco, Fall Out Boy, Weezer).
Both Sean and Hayden had very successful individual careers in the music industry prior to forming the band in 2018. Sean Michael Murray grew his pop/rock roots starring in Billie Joe Armstrong’s Broadway musical American Idiot as the lead, Johnny. He also won VH1’s reality show Make a Band Famous hosted by none other than All American Rejects frontman Tyson Ritter. The win led to his first record deal with Republic Records. You might recognize Hayden from FOX’s Glee, or from the multitude of his nationally televised performances. He’s played guitar on the American Country Music Awards, the Billboard Music Awards, Ellen, and most recently on NBC’s This Is Us with Mandy Moore.
