The Ineloquent

Admittedly nomadic yet hailing primarily from Colorado, The Ineloquent delivers contemplative and meaningful piano driven Pop/Rock with catchy melodies, layered vocal harmonies and a female lead described as "hauntingly angelic". The Ineloquent is currently living in Europe and getting ready to tour parts of Europe in summer 2015.

Biography

With their new album, E Is for Emergency, The Ineloquent delivers contemplative messages combining piano driven Pop/Rock with captivating melodies, multi-layered harmonies, and a female lead vocal that has been described as “hauntingly angelic”.  These components are arranged on an ever-changing soundscape of rhythm, atmosphere, ambient synth, and live strings. The melodic and engaging musical style draws comparisons to artists like Coldplay, The Fray, Keane, and One Republic, while the band’s frontwoman, Georgiana Eakins, is often compared to vocalists like Ellie Goulding, Regina Spektor, Nora Jones, and probably most often, Leigh Nash from Sixpence None the Richer.

The Ineloquent’s writing style is sincere and straightforward, giving language to the inner struggles that many of us wrestle with.  “We want to create the kind of music that makes you want to just close your eyes and listen, no matter where you are or what you’re doing,” says band frontman Daniel Eakins, “but beyond feeling, we also want to make the listener stop and think.” 

With lyrics that are revealing and deeply personal, E Is for Emergency weaves together themes of love, brokenness, fear, hope, and restoration.  These are songs that are meant to do more than just spill sound into silence; they are meant to challenge, inspire, and communicate messages of peace and good news in a world that seems to be drowning in a sea of the opposite.

The Ineloquent began with a love story.  Daniel and Georgiana started singing together while they were dating in college, although Daniel swears that he fell in love with Georgi before he ever heard her sing.  After getting married, they met Pablo Calderon who is now the third member and backbone of The Ineloquent.  Pablo is one of those gifted people who can play any instrument he touches (except bagpipes - which, given an opportunity, he could most likely master as well).  As other members have come and gone, each playing an integral part in the legacy of The Ineloquent, Pablo has remained and has worn many different hats over the years, from electric guitar to bass to drums.  The trio has been playing together, writing together, and touring together for so long that they are now like family, reading each other’s minds and all the other weird stuff families do.

Once The Gladiator was purchased in 2007, everything changed. The Gladiator was The Ineloquent’s beloved big green van and has been, more often than not, their home.  The nomadic life of the trio began and The Ineloquent hit the road running.  They moved to a little cabin in Minnesota where they recorded their first full studio album Seeing Things Your Way and then The Gladiator took off on its first of what would be many tours around the U.S.  Over the next few years, The Ineloquent “lived” in Iowa and Colorado, but the open road felt more familiar than anything else as The Ineloquent played multiple concerts in every state except for 3 (apologies to North Dakota, Alaska, and Hawaii), singing wherever there were open doors.

The Ineloquent eventually branched out beyond the reach of where The Gladiator could go, flying to sing in places like El Salvador, South Korea, England, Italy, and Romania, where Daniel and Georgiana are currently living and doing volunteer work on top of being active members of The Ineloquent.

After a literal engine explosion, The Gladiator now sits silent, but The Ineloquent does not.  With the release of E Is for Emergency, in many ways The Ineloquent is just getting started, having finally come into their own musical skin with a renewed vision and purpose.  The album was recorded in several different states and was finished in Romania during a visit from Pablo, who currently lives in Baltimore. The Ineloquent continues to write new material, some of which they will be debuting in 2015 along with their songs from E Is for Emergency as they tour around Romania, Europe, and the U.S.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, a song is worth ten thousand.  Georgiana, Daniel, and Pablo may in themselves be ineloquent, but through their music and lyrics, they are telling a story that goes beyond themselves, a story worth exploring.

Lyrics

EMERGENCY - "E is for Emergency" 2015

Written By: Daniel Eakins

Emergency
Emergency
We lost our heart
We lost our beat

Emergency
Emergency
We lost our love
We were too free
Emergency

Flat line
We are flat lined
We fell asleep on the front line
And now we’re falling
Fast life
This the fast life
We’re running short on time
So I am calling

Emergency
Emergency
We lost our heart
We lost our beat
Emergency

Blind bride
We the blind bride
We thought we had it all
We thought we’d make it
All right
But we’re not all right
We thought we’d never fall

We were mistaken

Emergency
Emergency
Emergency
Emergency
We lost our heart
We lost our beat
We lost our love
We were too free

Unaware
Unprepared
Unaware
Unprepared
Unaware
Unprepared
The end is in the air
And we are unaware
The end is in the air
And we are unprepared
The end is in the air
And we are unaware

This is an emergency

UNASSUMING - "E is for Emergency" 2015

Written By: Georgiana Eakins

You’re not how I thought you’d be
No you’re so surprisingly
Unassuming

You’re not the prim and proper man
Staring stern-faced, judging who I am
Saying with a condescending glare
If you want to get to heaven, darling
You’d better be careful how you appear

Oh and I saw the real you today
In the sparkling eyes of a little girl in poverty
And you pierced through her brilliant eyes and said
If you want to get to know me, darling, well this is me
My love is irresistible, as you are to me
With the innocence of a child, I love you
Unassumingly

If you want to get to know me, look at me
If you want the world to know me, love like me
If you want to get to know me, look at me

If you want the world to know me, love like me
If you want to get to know me, look at me
If you want the world to know me, love like me
If you want to get to know me, look at me
If you want the world to know me, love like me
Love like me

VERGE OF A BREAKTHROUGH - "E is for Emergency" 2015

Written By: Georgiana Eakins

Trapped in this cocoon like a moth I’m growing as I should
But this process hurts me more than I ever thought it could
I hear it’s normal to feel the way I distinctively do
When you’re on the verge of a break
Of a breakthrough

I can see my wings already waiting just around the corner
And I can feel my heart racing as this weight lifts into nowhere
And I can hear deliverance screaming my name over and over
It’s so close
I’m so close

Walls like a balloon stretch from pressure and it hurts the most
But when I’m at my worst I know that freedom’s close
I hear that a cocoon is necessary for your wings to bloom
I think I’m ready to be on the verge of a break
Of a breakthrough

I can see my wings already waiting just around the corner
And I can feel my heart racing as this weight lifts into nowhere
And I can hear deliverance screaming my name over and over
It’s so close
I’m so close

FEAR - "E is for Emergency" 2015

Written By: Daniel Eakins

Oh fear
Fear can be
A mean enemy
But dare
Don’t
Don’t you dare
Give up on me

‘Cause I won’t let you fall
I will be your

Peace
Prince
Prince of Peace
You’re safe with me
Destroy
Doubt

Doubt destroys
But faith sets free

‘Cause I won’t let you fall
I will be right

Here for you
Surrounding you
No matter what valley you’re walking through
I will walk with you
I will comfort you
And if you lose your strength
Then I will carry you

And I won’t let you fall
I will be right

Here
Me
Here with me
You will see
Flee
Fear
Fear will flee
It’s afraid of me

BITTER FRIEND - "E is for Emergency" 2015

Written By: Georgiana Eakins

A bitter friend you were to me for years
Sweet as can be, but nothing’s as it appears

You were my bitter friend
You were my bitter friend
You were my bitter friend
You were my bitter friend

It took me a while
To realize you’re full of lies
But I’ve seen your ugly side
The one that hides behind
Your beautiful, beautiful disguise

Crippled by you
and blind to anything that’s true
You promised me the world
if I did what you told me to do

You were my bitter friend
You were my bitter friend
You were my bitter friend
You were my bitter friend

It took me a while
To realize you’re full of lies
But I’ve seen your ugly side
The one that hides behind
Your beautiful, beautiful disguise
But you lied
Every time

You offer everything and more
And you ask for nothing but my soul
And I believed you every time
But I’m tired of falling for your disguise
Yeah I’m tired of falling for your disguise

I’ve seen your ugly side
The one that hides behind
Your beautiful, beautiful disguise

GOD KNOWS YOUR NAME - "E is for Emergency" 2015

Written By: Daniel Eakins

Step back from the edge
‘Cause you were meant for so much more than that
Just breathe another breath
And find the hope to face another day

‘Cause this is not a mistake
This is your life
This is your time now
And I don’t care what they say
You are worth it
You are wonderful
And the world will spin on long after you’re gone
But it will never spin the same
‘Cause you’re one of a kind
And God knows your name

The voice that spoke into the dark
And with a word brought light up from the void
Spoke life into your heart
He is the hope to face another day

No this is not a mistake
This is your life
This is your time now
And I don’t care what they say
You are worth it
You are wonderful
And the world will spin on long after you’re gone
But it will never spin the same
‘Cause you’re one of a kind
And God knows your name

Breathe another breath
God knows your name
Breathe another breath
God knows your name
Breathe another breath
God knows your name

So breathe another breath

I HAVE COME FOR YOU - "E is for Emergency" 2015

Written By: Georgiana Eakins

Look at your faces
You’ve got blank stares, a few small traces
Of happiness around your eyes
But your eyes are vacant
They are hollow inside and you can’t
Find anything to stay a while

So I have come for you
I have come for you
I’ve come for you
Yeah I’ve come for you

Somehow you know it
Life’s not supposed to be an endless war for peace of mind
My heart is breaking
‘Cause I know how you were made to be
In perfect peace with me

I’ll make you whole
I’ll make you whole
I’ll make it right
I’ll make you whole
I’ll make you whole
I’ll make it right
‘Cause I am the one your heart aches for
To bring you life

I have come for you
I have come for you
I’ve come for you
Yeah I’ve come for you

THE HERO IS HERE - "E is for Emergency" 2015

Written By: Daniel and Georgiana Eakins

It feels like everything is broken here
Is there anyone who’ll come and make everything right?

We’re looking for a hero
Someone to rescue
Someone to restore

It’s time to lift your head
Take heart you’re not alone
In this valley of the dead
You’re never on your own
There’s nothing left to fear
The hero is here

Didn’t he say we would have trouble here?
But have hope for he has overcome the world

We’re looking for a hero
Jesus has rescued
Jesus has restored

It’s time to lift your head
Take heart you’re not alone
In this valley of the dead
You’re never on your own
There’s nothing left to fear
The hero is here

Be still and believe
The hero is here
He gives rest and peace
In this valley of fear
The hero is here

It’s time to lift your head
Take heart you’re not alone
Take heart you’re not alone
You’re not alone

In this valley of the dead
You’re never on your own
There’s nothing left to fear
The hero is here

CA O FRUNZA (Romanian Song) - "E is for Emergency" 2015

Written By: Georgiana Eakins

Written and performed in Romanian
Based on Jeremiah 29:11

Imi tremura inima ca o frunza toamna
Se schimba vremea iar
Bate vintul de schimbare
My heart trembles like a leaf in autumn
The season is changing again
The wind of change is upon us

Si unde ma va duce vintul nu se stie
Asi vrea sa vad in viitor unde ma ia
Dar ma incred in tine, Doamne
And where the wind blows, no one knows
I’d like to know what the future holds and where it will take me
But I’m trusting in you, Lord

Fi linistita inima si adu-ti iar aminte
Ca tatal tau a promis
un plan de pace pentru tine
Be still, my heart, and remember once again
That your Father has promised you a plan full of peace

Nu stii ca El cunoaste toate zilele
scirse pentru tine?
Un viitor si o nadejde pace nu nefericire
Don’t you know that He knows all of the days written for you?
A future and a hope, peace and not unhappiness

Du-ma unde vrei
Ma duc unde ma iei
Take me where you will,
I’ll go where you take me

DISAPPEAR (Prelude and Reprise) - "E is for Emergency" 2015

Written By: Georgiana Eakins

Make me disappear
Until you appear
When I disappear
Then you become clear

When I disappear
Then you become clear

Make me disappear
Until you appear
When I disappear
Then you become clear

Make me disappear
Hide me - Until you appear
When I disappear
Jesus - Then you become clear

When I disappear
Jesus - Then you become clear
