Although bred in the classic Southern roots rock and Americana staples, the bandmembers of Black Eyed Soul weren't born south of the Mason-Dixon Line. Lead singer and founder Andrew Marcus, originally from New York, teamed up with Boston born Misty Dureault. The duo's love of alternative country and roots rock propelled them into recording. In 1999, Black Eyed Soul released its self-titled debut album, which was followed up by Thinking of a Brick Wall in 2001. The group had some rotating members, but found a permanent lineup in bassist Joel DelCarvo, and Mr. Pink, the group's drummer. In 2002, the group released Alien Peep Show, which featured "Stutter," a cover version of the classic Kiss song. So popular was the song that Gene Simmons posted it on the group's official website. Black Eyed Soul continues to tour the United States and performs at various showcases and festivals.
