Up for Air
'An eclipse of love songs and heartache, Eystone puts forth a challenging, self-produced album full of subtle, sexual tension and emotionally charged anger. Rush's singing is so passionate, and mind-blowing, every hardcore emotion is felt as she sings. The directional pull in this CD is like a compass spinning without any intentions of stopping. It's a continuous flow of rock with the perfect blend of harmonic melodies sure to please any rock fan looking to discover one incredible band!' - Heather Corcoran, GoGirls Music 'The first thing that hits you about this disc is the versatility of Karen Rush's vocals. On 'The One'(Angels), she is soft and demure, yet still possesses a strength that rises above so many pop princesses...on 'Up for Air' she shows a brashness and toughness that would cut through any roadhouse and snap heads to attention. Another aspect worth of mention is the smoking guitar work of Victor Munoz, who weaves in blues licks, Allman-like slides...The end result is a well-balanced disc from a promising band.' - Bill Ribas, NY ROCK 'The songs are engaging and interesting in a melodic moody Dawson's Creek way, and in fact would be a great bet for many of the WB shows that tend to find 'unsung' indie music right now...' - Stacey Baord, The Muse's Muse 'Fans from artists as diverse as Jewel, Tori Amos, the Pretenders and Concrete Blonde will love this band!' - Upstage Magazine, Asbury Park ***************** Eystone, formerly known as the Karen Rush Band, has been playing their own distinctive blend of acoustic rock since forming in New York City back in 2001. The band has performed before enthusiastic crowds at noted venues such as The Hardrock Cafe, Arlene's Grocery, The Acoustic Cafe in Bridgeport, CT as well as The Saint and Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ. Eystone's CD release for 'Up for Air' has also been featured on national television in a spotlight segment on Fox Magazine about the evolving indie music scene.
