    Nevertheless formed during high school in the area surrounding Chattanooga, Tennessee. The band's name is derived from Luke 5:5 (New King James Version), when the disciples were fishing and Jesus told them to cast their nets: But Simon answered and said to Him, "Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net."

    When college threatened to split up the act, the desire to create music won out, leading to the creation of Nevertheless's debut album, Live Like We're Alive (2006), which contained the hits "The Real" and "Live Like We're Alive." With a pop rock sound abounding, the album's songs naturally led to powerful performances rife with energy. During live performances, however, the band began to take notice of the moments that seemed to connect with people on more of a heart-level; the kind of emotionally-charged moments that one rarely forgets.

    "During our shows, we always used the introspective, slower songs, 'Lover' and 'O'Child,' as a transition from the more accelerated, upbeat songs," shared lead singer Joshua Pearson. "Not to take away from our louder, faster songs, because we love to rock out, but people would always get real quiet, and it was at that point in the night that we were able to really show a deeper level of our hearts."

    Blame it on audience reaction or simply becoming older, but Nevertheless really wants to be completely honest, open and real. To prove it, they wrote and recorded In The Making... (2008). Produced by Rob Hawkins (Fireflight, Jackson Waters), the album pushed the band's boundaries by delivering the unpredictable. In The Making... features emotionally-laced lyrics and the predominant use of piano -- an instrument that played an important part of Nevertheless's sound during its independent days. No longer in the same vein as Jimmy Eat World or Cartel, Nevertheless's second album skewed toward the likes of Copeland, Switchfoot, and Mae.

    "The goal for our music is to provide hope and inspire a desire to experience God's glory," said lead guitarist AJ Cheek. "I hope people can learn from our songs that no matter what they are going through, and if they don't know where to turn, just know that there is always hope through Jesus."

    After releasing the 2009 EP When I'm With You, Nevertheless disbanded in late 2009. Several of the members have gone on to play in other bands and work on other projects. In 2010, AJ Cheek played with the band Revive as a touring guitarist and keyboardist before joining them fully as a band member.
