Discography - Pirates (of Self Promotion)



One Eye Open has been an on again off again band since early 1996. OEO started out as a band called "Aloe" that consisted of Rage - Guitar, Ben - Bass, Alexis - Flute, JJ - Keyboards, Tara - Lead Vocals, and Patricia - Backup Vocals. The band fell apart mainly because everyone was out of (or getting out of) high school and starting their lives in the real world.
Soon after that Rage and Ben decided to form a Metal band. They went through various revamps in their metal endevor and decided to go back to there roots reforming as a classic rock band bringing back their friend and Flautist, Alexis, so they could work on there mellow sound. Tara was away at college so they decided to bring in Patricia for Lead Vocals since she knew the songs and was a close friend. The band soon found themselves sounding very tight musically, but their lack of a solid rhythm section was holding them back. Ed Garcia, who was the bands drum tech, stepped up as their drummer around 2004 and took the band to a whole new level.
After practicing a lot and writing enough material to fill a half hour set the band set out on getting gigs at local venues. They didn't have to try hard at all though because most of their shows were aquired by promoter seeking them. Their first break into the local music scene was The Speak Easy. Soon after more shows began to be available, but due to irreconcilable differences with Patricia the band had to cancle shows and start looking for a new singer.
After a short 3 month search and audition proccess, one person stood out from all the rest, Toni Rivera. It didn't take long for Toni to warm up to the band and fit in perfectly. At which point they threw her richt into the mix and joined a battle of the bands competition at The Rock which got their name out to a much larger audience, and once again the gigs started rolling in.
And the rest is the making that is.
