ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
John Eye is a singer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, recording engineer, and producer. He writes and records his own music, as well as produces and mixes other artists from around the world to help them capture the sound they envision. John has also been a sound supervisor for film, and post production mix engineer for film and television commercials. If it is audio and creative, it is his passion.

“I want to make music that creates an atmosphere and a mood,” John Eye explains, describing his new songs as “sensual, chill, and sexy.”

A former art student, John Eye has been painting with sound since he formed the band “one of us” in 1992. It started out as his way to “compile and illustrate all the emotions and ideas that seemed difficult to confine to a canvas.” The band released seven recordings and tracks on various compilations exhibiting a continually evolving sound and songwriting style, mastering genres from rock, to world, to beat driven dance music.

“one of us” toured heavily, with memorable shows at legendary venues including Club Babyhead in Rhode Island; The Webster Theater in Connecticut; The Bank and CBGB’s in New York City; and Paradise Rock Club and the Somerville Theatre in Boston.

Over the years John has collaborated with many talented artists. Working with Joel Simches, longtime master soundman for the Dresden Dolls, helped John refine his production and engineering techniques. Another co-conspirator, Christian Gilbert of the 90’s band, Opium Den, pushed John to explore world music influences and raw emotional composition.

Today John records music under his own name. His recordings are engineered and produced almost exclusively in his private studio, Beach House Studios, where he continues to explore new ideas and acquire new influences.

The best part of expressing himself with music, John says, comes in the moment he unleashes new material. The sonic world he imagined becomes real, leaving his mind and enrapturing the listener.

“I love feeling that excitement. It’s like you have a secret you haven’t told anyone yet. Then you share it with everyone and wait for their reaction.”
