A healthy balance of high energy pop, hauntingly good melodies, and an infectious live show is just part of what keeps The Nines at the top of many all-time greatest pop band lists. Being named North by North East's "Best unsigned Act" in 1998, allowed Canada's pop darlings the chance to release a second cleverly penned and supremely performed 4-song CD released on Universal. Eggers' songs have appeared on several hit Television shows, including Dawson's Creek, Party of Five, Joan of Arcadia as well as several others. The Nines released their second full length album, Properties of Sound, and immediately topped Canadian University Charts with the song, Melanie. The Nines have returned from a successful showcase in Hollywood and a tour of California, opening for Jason Falkner in Hollywood. The Nines have played a number of successful shows in New York City, playing New York's famous, CBGBs and The Knitting Factory.
Eggers has most recently been writing with other musicians including England's Andy Partridge of XTC. The Nines will be releasing their new album "Calling Distance Stations" in spring 2006, which was mixed by Jason Falkner, Joao Carvalho and John Adams. The new album features a co-write with Andy Partridge.
