Bio:

Eyes is a hard rock band from Los Angeles, California, USA, that was formed under the name of LA Rocks in 1986.The band changed its name to Eyes in 1988.Not to be confused with Eyes from New Haven, although James Christian was a vocalist in both bands.The band changed the vocalist several times in the early days, when it was still called LA Rocks. Jizzy Pearl, Mark Boals, Parramore McCarty, Mark Weitz (2), Rob Lamothe, Jeff Scott Soto and James Christian all sang for this band in this short period between 1986 and 1988. At last Jeff Scott Soto returned to the band in 1988 when it was already called Eyes.Eyes recorded an impressive demo tape in 1989 that also found ex-RATT and ROUGH CUTT bassist Matt Thorr involved. Keyboards, at that point, were courtesy of former BERLIN man Todd Jasmin.Fronted by Soto, Eyes signed to Curb Records, a label normally associated with Country music after originally recording an album's worth of material for Capitol. The band's debut album was released through in 1990 and was the first to feature an album recording of the L.A. ROCKS classic 'Nobody Said It Was Easy', a number that must have been recorded by every singer who has ever rehearsed with Aldy Damien. All but two of the tracks on the first album featured YNGWIE MALMSTEEN man Marcel Jacob on bass.The group toured with NAZARETH, SLAUGHTER, KANSAS, GREAT WHITE, BAD COMPANY and CHEAP TRICK as well as headlining club dates. A proposed co-headlining tour with SAIGON KICK and county fair shows with REO SPEEDWAGON and KANSAS never got past the starting gate after Curb refused financial support.Soto would quit the group after the 'Windows Of The Soul' album, featuring the recordings done for Capitol back in 1989, was eventually released. EYES hooked up with Mark Weitz (having once auditioned him in the L.A. ROCKS days), but the singer failed to last the distance and the two parties parted company in 1993.Whilst searching for a replacement vocalist, EYES auditioned the likes of Kelly Hansen of HURRICANE and Robert Mason from LYNCH MOB, even talking to ex-BUSTER BROWN, KING KOBRA and FOREIGNER singer Johnny Edwards. Eventually the search led them to Boston and erstwhile SHOUT and WILD HORSES vocalist John Levesque. He had been working on an abortive project with ex-WHITE LION guitarist Vito Bratta around that period.

Album:

This American hard rock outfit released two stupendous albums at the beginning of the ’90s that simply didn’t get the attention it so rightly deserved the first time around.This 2-CD set titled “24U” (Two For You) includes EYES two official albums plus unreleased / rare tracks, and it’s a must have in tour collection.Originally formed in the mid-Eighites under the band name L.A. Rocks (several demos were taped) in its first attempt featured Kelly Hansen on lead vocals, guitarist Steve Dougherty (ex- Burning Rome, Berlin), bassist Chuck Wright (ex- Giuffria) and drummer Aldy Damian. Hansen took off for the band Hurricane and Chuck Wright to Quiet Riot and House Of Lords.Enter new bassist Jimmy O’Shea (ex-Cacophony) and powerhouse vocalist Jeff Scott Soto (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen) and a brand new monicker in EYES, circa 1989.Main songwriter Dougherty selected the best songs and with this line-up recorded EYES self titled debut, released in 1990.The album is full of awesome Melodic Hard Rock songs with that polished early Nineties sound production, commercial and catchy tunes plenty of hooks.The vibe is similar to Winger’s second album, Kiss (especially the song ‘Can’t Get Enough’), and even Def Leppard (‘Wired 4 Love’). Also, you can find a great version of Dianne Warren’s ‘Don’t Turn Around’, also recorded by various artists and bands.Second album Windows Of The Soul was finally released in 1994 but recorded a couple years before. If follows the same style / sound from debut, perhaps a bit more punchy.Songs like ‘Cheyenne’ and ‘Nobody Said it Was Easy’ should be considered Melodic Hard Rock classics of all time, and for sure, among Jeff Scott Soto finest moments.EYES “24U” is terrific 2CD Set including the band’s full two albums plus bonus songs that never made it into the final track-list but rocks anyway. This is a fantastic band quite unknown for many Jeff Scott Soto fans.Production is brilliant, where the backing vocals are huge emulating Def Leppard’s technique of layered harmonies. Spencer Proffer (King Kobra, Quiet Riot) co-produced, making Soto to record overdubs of the backing vocals up to 10 times per harmony, then the rest of the band to have the different frequencies, to finally mix all together resulting in a BIG set of choruses.
