Grey Eye Glances biography
New Jersey's GREY EYE GLANCES (GEG for short), who got its name from an Edgar Allen Poe poem, started in 1992 and consisted of vocalist/guitarist Jennifer NOBEL, Dwayne KEITH on keyboards and bassist/vocalist Eric O'DELL. They grew to include other members with the addition of guitarist/vocalist Brett KULL and ECHOLYN drummer Paul RAMSEY. Their music is a light, mostly acoustic, sound (electric bass, acoustic guitars, & electric piano) with vocal harmonies that supports a strong set of songs and a very silky smooth lead vocalist. It awakens your soul with poetic lyrics and unique sounds that capture your attention. GEG is a wondefull band in the mold of such classic examples as FAIRPORT CONVENTION or RENAISSANCE.

"Eventide" differs vey much in style from their earlier stuff. What a wonderful collection of songs. Comparable to OCTOBER PROJECT or Sara McLACHLAN, but more accessible. "Painted Picture" is somewhat tame compare to their previous album "Eventide", but NOBEL's great voice + lyrics still grows on you & becomes rare to find these days. "A Little Voodoo" (their most recent album at this date) is just a great album, building on the older albums, and bridging into other areas. If you you're open to differents styles and sounds go for "Eventide", but if you're after a band that's come to terms with itself, get "A Little Voodoo" instead.

The band GREY EYE GLANCES continues to amaze me. GO OUT AND BUY!!! Highly Recommended!!!

Review by LMS---

— First review of this album —
3 stars I'm in doubt. I don't think it is prog rock. The drums are simple pop, the guitars sound almost "new country", the lyrics are definitely not what you expect from prog. I feel like hearing Carpenters! But... man I LIKE it! Why is that? Wait! I know! Yes... yes... the vocals! Crystal clear feminine vocals. That will do to save GEG for me. I wish I could hear Jennifer Nobel explore her voice in more progressive ways.

I don't think that this is REALY prog, but... anyway we don't REALY choose the things we like.

2 stars From the Heart

"A little voodoo" is Grey Eye Glances latest studio release at time of writing. I am not familiar with their back catalogue, but I have to assume it has far more in the way of prog influences than this. The band may feature a couple of members of ECHOLYN in their line up, but this is pop rock pure and simple.

Singer Jennifer Noble has a fine if undistinguished voice which is by far the most dominant factor in all the tracks here. The music is that of FLEETWOOD MAC ("Rumours" era), HEART, SHANIA TWAIN, NATALIE IMBRUGLIA etc. We have strong melodies, upbeat rhythms and prosaic lyrics about love and relationships. "If I was" for example is one of many tracks which could readily be lifted as a single, and would sound great on melodic rock radio. Occasionally, we have a burst of lead guitar from Brett Kull, but such breaks are kept ruthlessly short.

When Noble's vocals are multi-tracked on songs such as "The one", the Heart similarities become even stronger. Elsewhere, the sound is that of the myriad of crossover country/pop artists such as the aforementioned SHANIA TWAIN, LEANN RIMES, LEE ANN WOMACK, MARTINA MCBRIDE etc.

For obvious reasons, this review tends to focus on the simplicity of the contents of this album. Had it been written for another site, perhaps one not dedicated to a specialist genre, the slant would undoubtedly have been more positive. This is well performed female vocal pop, but it is far from original and lacking in any real identity.

Review by Dan Bobrowski

3 stars I love this album (so why only 3 stars?). It is NOT prog. Even though Brett Kull and Paul Ramsey from Echolyn are a part of this group and GEG's previous releases had a lot of prog flavor, it's still not Prog. I highly recommend this to MUSIC lover's of the Natalie Merchant/Sarah McLachlan ilk. Fabulous lyrics, the incredibly silky voice of Jennifer Nobel, well crafted melodies, catchy hooks, highly polished musicianship and crystal clear production.

This is music for couples, played loudly winding down the coastal highways. It's hard for me to choose one tune as THE standout track. It flows along seemlessly, which is hard to believe since three different producers pieced this together; Jerry Marotta, T-Bone Wolk and Brett Kull.

Kulls guitar gets its moments to shine but he plays within the context of the tune. Ramsey's drum work is solid with the less then stressful stuff he played with Echolyn. Dwayne Keith's keyboard work is more ambient and fills the backgrounds nicely. Eric O'Dell lays down some nice bass work that enhances the tunes and keeps them moving.

Obviously GEG is looking for the limelight, and why shouldn't they? Is writing smart thoughtful tunes, even in a pop setting, wrong? Not at all. Buy it, even if it's not prog. Your wife or girlfriend will like you better for it.
