'Dream Pop' A love for deep grooves anchors Entheos while they dress their songs with shimmering acoustic pop hooks. Tight melodic vocal harmonies evoke the popular Greenwich Village sounds of the 1960's, while indie rock and Britpop inform their music. Entheos claims influences as diverse as Coldplay, 311, Doves, Muse, Massive Attack, Air, and the Beatles. Dream Pop best describes their actual musical niche, earning Entheos superlative comparisons to Mazzy Star, Everything but the Girl and Mojave 3. Who's who? Carl Shepard - vocals, guitars, bass, programming Alison Shepard - vocals, percussion, keyboard This brother and sister team have been singing together since grade school. 'For us, performing together is a really natural thing,' says Carl. 'It's a kind of dynamic conversation, between each other and our audience. Though I'm also a visual artist, I realize that words and music are sometimes a more powerful form of communication,' Alison explains. Duos and Dichotomies Listening to the band you get a sense of their expansive emotional territory: Bliss and sorrow, sadness and wonder. College professors would call this a dichotomy, or perhaps even a paradox. But Alison and Carl aren't seeking intellectual answers. Entheos is looking to pull something deeper from their passionate audience, something from within, using sound. Entheos and Etymology Spirit and enthusiasm are energies the band and their audience share for one another, and also contribute to the meaning of Entheos, both as a word and a musical force. Entheos has in fact, derived their name from the Greek etymological root of the word, enthusiasm. Because of that spirit and enthusiasm, Entheos enjoys a growing and returning crowd. For the band, playing to their audience isn't just another gig. 'It's a real event, a happening,' Carl says. Continues Alison, 'It's something special. We're making an authentic connection with our audience every time.' Interested in booking Entheos? Please contact Entheos via email: Entheos@entheosmusic.com. Or firstname.lastname@example.org.
