In 2016, Early Eyes came to life on a Minneapolis college campus. Though the band originally started as a hobby, they have since become so much more.
Early Eyes have established themselves in the Twin Cities with their catchy, energetic, and soulful sound, which has led to local venue First Avenue naming them one of the Best New Bands of 2017 and Minneapolis City Pages nominating them for Best New Band in 2018. They have released three EPs: Minutes (2017), Decorating (2018), and All Shades of Teal (2018). The band signed to Epitaph Records in 2019 and have just released their first single on the label, “I’m Enough”.
Early Eyes is Jake Berglove (vocals/guitar), Joe Villano (guitar), John O’Brien (guitar), Des Lawrence (bass), and Wyatt Fuller (drums).
