Bio

The Eternal Optimist Party (EOP) are rapidly rising stars on the Calgary music scene. Propelled by the creative songwriting of Sally Titasey (Acoustic Guitar, Bass, vocals) and Rob Hay (Acoustic guitar, Bass vocals), the EOP presents a diverse collection of musical flavours ranging from soul & gospel to rock & funk, and a bit of old country & folk just for good measure. The Party also features percussion prodigy Matt Zinken on drums, and local guitar legend Don Seager on lead guitar and sonic engineering. The band formed in December of 2008, when it entered the first round of the Big Rock Untapped Band Challenge at the Shamrock Hotel. They were awarded the Grand Prize in the competition. Fleeting Life, a six song EP produced entirely by the band was released in September and has sold well at their live shows and at discerning record stores in Calgary including Megatunes and Sloth Records. On the heels of their release, the band has opened for touring acts in Calgary including a spot with the Lost Fingers, a fantastic Quebec-based gypsy jazz outfit. They are also working to finish a full length LP that will be due out early in 2010.
