If you like The Clash, The Who or Green Day to name just a few, you will love this band. They are in the studio right now recording their second album. Their Live shows are legend...go see them.

Inward Eye is an indie-rock band, hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba in central Canada. The three guys have an intoxicating musical repertoire and an addictively intense stage presence. They have mentioned being influenced by bands like The Kinks, The Clash, The Who, Holland-Dozier-Holland, The Jam, Smokey Robinson, Green Day, and the Rolling Stones.

Inward Eye is a 3-piece rock band of brothers from Winnipeg, Manitoba consisting of Dave (bass/vocals, 22), Kyle ( guitar, 20 ) and Anders (drums, 18) Erickson. Despite their young age they’ve have been playing together for over 7 years. Their energetic sound is reminiscent of the Jam, the Kinks, and the Who but at the same time remains fresh and modern. At the heart of Inward Eye is their live show that blows away audiences, without fail, every time they play.

Glen Willows, responsible for discovering Remy Shand (Motown/Universal) and Rob James of McMaster & James (VIK/BMG), has been working with the band for two years now. First looking at them as a writing project, he quickly realized that they could write just fine on their own - so he produced two demos for the band, and put together a promo package that led to the involvement of producer Arnold Lanni (Simple Plan, Our Lady Peace, Finger Eleven) and Rob Lanni of Coalition Management (coalitionent.com).

Inward Eye struck the Lannis as having a classic rock sound and maturity that belied their age. Arnold says “It sounded like a bunch of veteran musicians doing songs they wrote in the Sixties.” Add to this charisma and youthful good looks and you can see why so much interest has already been generated for a band so young.

Currently considering offers from several labels, the plan for Inward Eye is to get their remarkable stage show in front of as many people as possible. Now signed with Ralph James of The Agency Group they’ve already played with Billy Talent, Danko Jones, Urge Overkill and Tegan and Sara, now they plan to tour throughout the rest of this year and much of the next, culminating in an album late summer/early fall 2006. With Anders’ showmanship, Kyle’s spastic guitar outbursts, and Dave’s command of the audience, Inward Eye is bringing back fun and spontaneity to rock shows.
This band rocks. This band rocks. This band rocks. This band rocks. This band rocks. This band rocks.

About this topic


Having toured relentlessly throughout the U.S. and Canada, Inward Eye are finally set to deliver their 2009 debut album Throwing Bricks Instead Of Kisses. Combining the band's notorious live energy with infections melodies and hooks, the band delivers a tour de force of a record that recalls the excitement and bombast of The Clash, The Kinks, The Stooges and The Who. As a live unit, Inward Eye are untouchable.
