Biography

Philadelphia, United States

In this bio, you will learn some helpful facts about Philadelphia music group National Eye. Of course, the only really important thing to know is that it’s five guys (Will Baggott, Gianmarco Cilli, Doug Kirby, Rick Flom and Jeff Love) pulling music from out of themselves that seeks to describe and deepen the Mystery Of Life (which is really a murder mystery, since everybody dies). That’s the short of it, and here’s the long:

They met at school in Colorado in the LATE NINETIES where they basically learned to play music with and from one another. Many recordings were made — hiss-soaked, hobbling mood-bursts that provided the framework for what they would eventually do when National Eye began nebulously taking shape several years later. After college, they packed up for Philadelphia to continue to make music together. It took a few years, but eventually they began to unwittingly forge a method and a style that would take full advantage of the members’ disparate tastes and abilities. Five guys met at the center of the Eye — and recorded a bunch of great songs.

The result of these endeavors, The Meter Glows appeared in 2003 — which is essentially the birth of the band caught on tape, in the sense that before these songs started to coalesce in their headphone universe, there was no “National Eye” (strictly speaking).
