The best kept secret in music


""Aching From Wanting More""

“The cd is quite impressive, it was something that grabbed my attention and ear today. Congrats on a well produced and crafted cd.”

""Firm Comprehension of Pop-Rock""

“This Side of Eve seems to have a firm comprehension of pop-rock songwriting, but also a foundation in acoustic music that offers depth and cohesion… Aching from Wanting More, testifies to the band's songwriting dedication, but isn't the complete story. Rather, it's the first chapter in what's likely to become a welcome addition to Pittsburgh's musical library.”

"Top Ten Band in Pittsburgh"

This Side of Eve, with the release of their first album, Aching From Wanting More, was ranked as one of the top 10 bands of 2003 in the Pittsburgh area by 91.3 fm WYEP in their annual year-end review. - 91.3 WYEP

"Can't Make Out the Stars"

Pittsburgh Post Gazette Article

Members: Alyssa Creasy, the voice of a honky-tonk angel, piano and organ, beats; John Creasy, lead guitar, lap steel and digital programming; Bill Adams, guitar, some vocals, mandolin and Bluebelles-esque harmonica on "May"; Chris Hilf, bass; and Ian White, drums and programming.
The sound: Despite occasional forays into what's sure to be referred to as folktronica, This Side of Eve is all about Americana, from country to folk, and blessed with gorgeous female vocals perfect for this kind of music.
Checkered past: The Creasys were once part of Pittsburgh's ska-revival scene with The Toniks.
The album: "Can't Make Out the Stars," a sophomore effort you wouldn't believe was recorded at home on a Powerbook laptop. Their previous effort, "Aching From Wanting More," was a favorite of WYEP, where it made the list of Top 10 local efforts of 2003. And several of the highlights here -- from the alt-country pop of the opener, "May," to the melancholy ache of "These Streets Alone" (the folktronica song) -- sound ripe for airplay on stations like WYEP from here to, well, just about anywhere.
The release party: Tonight at 8 p.m. at Garfield Artworks, 4931 Penn Ave, with Sweden's Cake on Cake and The Leonard Cohen Ensemble One, a local band that does not feature Leonard Cohen. All ages welcome. Admission

Feeling a bit camera shy


Formed by Alyssa (vox) and John Creasy (guitar) in 1999, TSE’s current line up is rounded out by Ian White (drums), Nate Stevens (bass) and Bill Adams (guitar, mandolin, harmonica, vocals). The band quickly gained a foothold in the Pittsburgh music scene, steadily growing its fan base playing at the area’s most prominent clubs such as the late Rosebud Café, The Rex Theater, and Club Café.

TSE will release their second full length album, Can't Make Out the Stars, in November of 2005. The new album represents a branching out of experimentation with different genres and musical interests. The new record was recorded in the relaxed atmosphere of the members homes where experimentations could easily take place. This Side of Eve is the first band in the region to pushed for new forms of music which blend Americana tradition with the ambience of today's emerging electronica sounds.

In June 2003, the band self-released its debut CD, Aching From Wanting More, and since that time has sold hundreds of copies of the CD at live shows, in local Pittsburgh music stores and through the Internet sites CDBaby and CDStreet. The 10-song CD, which was recorded in Athens, Ohio in April 2003, showcases what Justin Hopper of the Pittsburgh City Paper describes as the band’s “firm comprehension of pop-rock songwriting, but also a foundation in acoustic music that offers depth and cohesion.”

Pittsburgh’s WYEP-FM has given the record’s first single, Give, substantial airplay, and rated the band’s CD as one of the top 10 releases by local artists in 2003. TSE’s live, in-studio performance of Home appears on WYEP’s Live and Direct, Vol. IV CD, which was released in late April 2004. On the CD, TSE takes its place along side such regionally and nationally acclaimed artists as The Clarks, Bill Deasy, New Invisible Joy, and Soda Jerk.
