Earth to Eugene
Earth to Eugene began playing live music in the New York City area in 2003. The band played mostly acoustic shows that mixed acoustic guitars with piano and hand drums. Notable gigs through a three year span included shows at Kenny’s Castaway, The Knitting Factory, CBGB Acoustic Galleria, and the Cutting Room.
The group began exploring home recording efforts in 2005 and later that year released a self produced album titled Staring at the World Outside. This album largely reflected the type of acoustic based performances Earth to Eugene was known for playing live. Each track was a unique mixture of acoustic/electric guitars layered with percussion and hand drums. The songs themselves shifted through a variety of rock and alternative sounds creating a truly distinctive album.
Since this time, the band focused exclusively on improving and expanding their recording efforts. In 2008, they released their second album titled The Light Unseen. This album reflected significant change in recording methods as the band combined percussion and hand drums with a full drum set. There was also a greater emphasis placed on synthesizer and piano parts within many of the compositions. The final product moves through a variety of musical genres, while displaying a personal style the band had been developing for years.
2010 was a busy year for Earth to Eugene. The band upgraded their recording abilities and techniques even further, resulting in the creation of an archive of recorded material that was released in a series of albums throughout the year. The Heavy Escape, Terminals and Inner City Gruel each have their own musical flavor and are available as free downloads. In addition, Earth to Eugene worked on a short film for the 48 Film Festival last June titled “Loved Me, Loved Me Not”. The band composed original music for the film as well as contributed existing songs from their albums. Click on the "Film" link above to check out that video.
After a string of shows playing as an acoustic duo in 2012, E2E began playing with other musicians at the start of 2013 and became a 5 piece rock band. The band currently consist of two guitars, bass, drum and keys, and has started playing venues in NYC during the spring. The year also brought the release of Afternoon in Shadows, the bands ninth studio release. This album is a collection of songs that shift through a number of different genres the band has been working in throughout the years.
