Eisley #SXSW

Eisley is a band out of Tyler, TX. I’ve never been a huge fan of their music until this new album they just put out. I really really enjoy it. It is definitely a much more mature sound than their previous albums. I got to shoot the first two songs of their performance at the Paste Magazine SXSW Party last week. Check out their new album, The Valley. Also, if anybody knows the Dupree sisters…hook a brotha up! Haha.

In case you don’t follow me on Twitter or Facebook and weren’t inundated by my constant updating last week, I was in Austin, TX for South by Southwest. I got to see so many of my favorite artists/bands last week. One of the most memorable performances last week was from The Civil Wars. If you don’t know who The Civil Wars is, go to your closest mirror and look at yourself and then give yourself a nice big slap across the face. Haha. Ok, don’t do that, but definitely check them out. Often times, simplicity is best. And that’s exactly what they do. Great guitar pickings and the occasional piano are the backdrop for the incredible harmonies by Joy Williams and John Paul White. Seriously do yourself a favor and pick up their albums. Actually, there’s a 7 song album from one of their SXSW performances on iTunes.
