One chilly evening, early in the fall of 2010, Adam Brockway, Dave Wright, Carl Anderson, Luke Anderson and Zack Infante gathered by a woodstove in a barn on the outskirts of Greenwich, NY. With a snare, a kick, and an old beat up high hat, Carl began teaching himself how to play the drums while Adam and Zack played along on guitars, Luke on banjo and Dave on bass. Vocal melodies and harmonies were flowing like the beer from their cans and within a few hours, the group had written 2 songs front to back and it was obvious, at least to the brand new quintet, that they had immediately put together a sound that was just as unique as it was traditional.
Week by week, song by song, the band quickly collaborated a full set-list of original music. They eventually settled on the name Eastbound Jesus, and only two months after their first jam session, they performed for a full house at Burton Hall in Easton, NY as part of the bi-annual Hootenanny series. Just days after the show, they began recording their songs, and on January 27th 2011, the band released their 12 song debut album (Eastbound Jesus; Greatest Hits Volume 1) to a sold out hometown crowd. The following day, Infante moved to Buenos Aries and since then the band has picked up guitarist, Dylan Robinson.
In the midst of writing their next album, Eastbound Jesus had made big moves in the local, and regional scene winning SPAC's battle of the bands in June. The band continues to fill venues and pick up new fans show by show. The bands next move? hopefully coming to a town near you!!
