Feeling a bit camera shy


The foundation of Crushing Daisies was first cultivated during a tour of duty for both Sean and Eric in Iraq. Sean, having been a part of the band for Ft. Hood's 1st Cavalry Division, and Eric, an artillery sergeant who was granted a transfer to sing for the 1st Cavalry's band, met as an unlikely pair, neither believing the other was the musician each claimed to be.
Though they quickly found after jamming with eachother that they shared a mutual passion for heavy riffs and lilting sing-a-long choruses that soon became the backdrop of the Crushing Daisies. With Eric's haunting voice reminiscient of Chris Cornell and Myles Kennedy and Sean's controlled franticism behind the drums became a defining factor behind the original sound that is Crushing Daisies. Eric's guitar influences rooted with many of the pioneers of alternative rock, including Mark Tremonti, and John Petrucci, while Sean's influences complimented yet contrasted as he leaned towards the more punkish sounds of Tre Cool, along with the stylings of Mike Cosgrove, and Jon Theodore After returning from Iraq, they barely had shrugged all the sand from their shoulders when they met up with bassist Adam Barton.
Adam Barton, another soldier in the army, had barely picked up a bass before he was invited into the Daisies. However with his history in piano and brief flirtings with guitar, he had quickly evolved his individual sound through the bass, creating for him a new form of expression. Adam's influences on the bass came from the progressive side of the bass playing field, channeling bassists such as Flea, Ryan Martinie, and Michael Todd through his fingers becoming his own voice in the band.
Though the band varies widely in influences, the individual minstrels form together to provide an orchestra of hard hitting guitar and bass riffs, dance-a-long drum grooves. Through Eric's heart felt lyrics the have melted many a heart, the Crushing Daisies have proven themselves worry to carry the banner of a new resurgance of unapologetic hard rock and roll.
