The ELI YOUNG BAND has always been unique in modern Country music - a true band of brothers who play their own instruments, write their own songs and cling fast to their Texas roots. They'd even go so far as to call themselves "misfits," but with their fourth major label album, FINGERPRINTS (The Valory Music Co.), they're finally embracing what makes them different once and for all.
"With 17 years of experience comes a little bit of wisdom and freedom in knowing who you are," says lead singer Mike Eli. "And what you're really good at."
Although their sound has evolved over time, what they're good at has always been the same - organic, live-show focused Country dripping with authenticity and perfected in clubs, amphitheaters and stadiums from coast to coast.
Eli founded the band with guitarist James Young, bassist Jon Jones and drummer Chris Thompson at the University of North Texas in 2000, building a grass-roots fanbase that propelled each of their previous three albums into the Top 5 of Billboard's Country Albums chart, with 2014's 10,000 TOWNS bowing at No. 1.
"We've been through everything together," Eli says. "We've had this inner support system even before we had families of our own, and I think we still turn to that. Whatever the road is in front of us, our friendship will always be the priority."
This summer, the road will take them from California to Maine, headlining shows with a set of brand new - but classic sounding - Eli Young Band tunes. And it will likely be just as much fun for them as it is for fans.
"We still look at each other as college buddies - not business partners," says Young. "We get to share our lives with each other and we've done some really cool stuff, and our music has been the greatest byproduct of that."
