BandBluesRock

The Heavy Eyes hail from Memphis TN & North Mississippi. Influenced from an array of different artists, the late 60's & early 70's were most appreciated by them. Having grown up in the delta region, they're most influenced by regional blues musicians such as Junior Kimbrough & R.L. Burnside.

Biography

The Heavy Eyes is psychedelic bluesy rock from the delta that sounds similar to a skeleton driving a speed boat on a flaming Mississippi River headed back to 1969.

No story. We're simple-- we play roots influenced music.

The influences are Leaf Hound, Led Zeppelin, Cactus, Black Sabbath, Cream, Sir Lord Baltimore, Junior Kimbrough, R.L. Burnside, Buddy Guy, The Stooges, Jeff Beck, The Meters, The JB's, Fu Manchu, Queens Of The Stone Age... and 1,000 more.

Discography

Currently, we have a rough downloadable EP (that we recoded) titled, 1 on our bandcamp account. We are releasing a full length album in January.
