Vincent's Ear

Vincent's Ear

BandRockAlternative

Somewhere between the cerebral psychedelia of the Doors and the heavy sound of Motorhead is the original sound of Santa Cruz' own Vincent's Ear. A rare blend of absinthe, agave, and green tea. After several west coast tours and a recent tour of the U.K. and Switzerland, the band is tight.

Biography

From Queens of the Stone Age to the seminal LA band X, Vincent's Ear has shared the stage with many musical heavy hitters. This unassuming outfit is known for "lift-off", taking the listener out of their own heads and into the moment.
Their music has appeared on local compilations, the lead track on SCene, as well as the soundtrack for the epic surf movie "Monster Mavericks" and a documentary of the legendary Sunset Strip club - The Rainbow, featuring the Doors and Lemmy. It comes as no surprise that they have twice been voted best local band by the readers of the Good Times Entertainment Weekly.
After a night of revelry with the band Flogging Molly, the boys listened intently as F.M.'s Dave King shared pints of Guinness and tales of his old Irish Grandma. This wet the appetite for a tour of the UK with amazing experiences in Belfast, Liverpool, and in London where they played to a sold out crowd at the infamous Dublin Castle.
"The Ear" is currently hard at work in the studio and preparing for release of an album of brand new material by the end of the year. A live greatest hits package is in the works as well.
