The band originally began with Barnard performing solo acts, but Everett increasingly played a major role in his performances. With the release of their 2003 album, entitled Carry Away, the band became officially known as ‘Shane & Shane‘.
In 2014, following a successful Kickstarter campaign, Shane & Shane launched a project called ‘The Worship Initiative’, a paid membership website with instructional videos and chord charts for popular worship songs. As part of the project, they also released 10 volumes of 10 songs each and a Christmas album. Their subsequent studio albums The Worship Initiative andPsalms II are also included in the project.
