With Seeing Blind you never know what you are going to get. If you want a taste of their musical vision, listen to a song like "Knew You", the explosive hit off their first E.P. "urgency".
Produced by Seeing Blind and Dave Hillis (The Afghan Whigs), "urgency" reveals their ability to craft infectious & diverse songs. "urgency" was recorded in Seattle, WA. and was made with 100% real musicians (not tested on animals). With only a few bumps and scrapes they managed to release their first E.P. together in January 2005. The band had to call in a few favors (including coercing the house engineer to make Thai food for them) in order to keep things running smoothly. That engineer ended up filling the position of bassist with the band.
So, after only five hectic days in the studio their musical child was born at London Bridge Studios. While Melissa was laying down her vocal tracks, the rest of the band was hard at work sticking to their strict routine of pool playing, channel surfing and general trash talking. After the mixing and mastering was finished, they hit the road again to take their music to the masses.
Seeing Blind has been described as alternative rock with emotional intelligent lyrics, soaring melodies, and solid grooves. Influences include Jeff Buckley, The Dave Matthews Band, Tool, Rusted Root, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Ani DiFranco.
