White Rabbit EP - June 2011



Having spent the last five years writing and performing with young rock band The Rushing, Jonny Eyden has put the finishing touches to his exciting new E.P. with brand new band ‘Eyden.‘ The EP is being helmed by legendary producer Pedro Ferreira who’s previous work includes the hugely successful ‘Permission To Land’ by The Darkness which sold over 5 million copies worldwide. The E.P., entitled White Rabbit, is the band’s first recording together and was recorded live at Rockfields Studios in Wales. The process was a very short affair, the band taking just 5 days to record all 5 tracks on the E.P. live to tape - ‘All I Need’ was done in one single take from start to finish! The record will be promoted heavily throughout 2011 by the bands indie label Fishface Records and the band are now ready to start performing their new material live and will be adding further tracks to create an album by the end of the year. For more information about the band or to make a booking please contact their manager Ben on 07778 517659 or ben.ross@fishfacerecords.com


Jonny Eyden started his musical career at the age of thirteen as a drummer. He soon ditched the sticks for a guitar and started playing with a school band that performed under a multitude of names over the next 7 years - Shimmer, Within an Ace, Asono and The Rushing to name but a few. It was in the guise of The Rushing that the band had success with 2 international tours, a South by SouthWest performance and a music video play-listed on Kerrang! Scuzz and NME TV. The band received excellent reviews of their 2009 debut album ‘Summon The Heroes’ before going their separate ways due to personal differences at the end of the same year. Since the split of The Rushing Jonny has been writing new material and finding new influences in his music. In October of this year Jonny posted on a number of sites that he was looking to create a new band and within 2 weeks the band the band was formed...

Louie Palmer is twenty five years old - he has been playing drums for twenty of them! He studied privately and extensively with such drum legends as Dave Weckl, Thomas Lang and Mark Mondesir. He’s played with Jazz luminaries Jason Rebello (Sting, Jeff Beck), Gary Husband (John Mclaughlin) and Janek Gwizdala (Mike Stern). Louie has a style all of his own and is one of the best young drummers in Britain today. "Louie is the real deal. I am proud to have been around at the start to watch this young man grow in career and stature; an awesomely talented drummer!" Steve White (Paul Weller).

Jonathan Harvey has been a musician his whole life, from scratching away at the violin from the tender age of five, Jon slowly gravitated towards the bass guitar, galvanised by his Fathers endless record collection and the energy created in great music. “I just wanted to be a part of it all, growing up and studying Jazz in London - I just love the diversity that this city has to offer music.” Jon’s touring life began soon after with regular performing trips to Japan and moving there in 2009 before returning home shortly after with mercury poisoning after consuming too much sushi! He toured in 2010 with Aronas performing regally in Europe and in Canada at The Montreal Jazz Festival. Jon went on to be part of the late night house band at Ronnie Scotts before heading to Nashville and recording with Malcolm Bruce.

Little is known about the fourth member of Eyden, Tommy Emmerton. It is said that he can be found shredding away in the pit of West End shows at the weekends and uses his own strings as dental floss. What we do know is that the sound waves emanating from his guitar and amplifier are otherworldly!

Jonny notes ”I’ve got a great feeling about the band, the guys are awesomely talented, we get on well and rehearsals are fantastic - this year is going to be amazing!”

Both the new band and Jonny take their new name from Jonny’s great uncle - Bill Eyden who drummed as a session player on A Whiter Shade of Pale - the most played song in British Broadcasting history - but who unfortunately never received any of the credit.
