Biography

Louisiana, USA (2002 - 2008)

The Eames Era were a Baton Rouge, Louisiana based indie pop quintet founded by New Orleans guitarists Grant Widmer and Ted Joyner. The band started its way in 2002, Grant and Ted’s junior year at Louisiana State University, when the two former high school friends enlisted drummer Greg Gauthreaux and bass player Brian Waits to form “The Double Zeros”. Singer Ashlin Phillips auditioned for the band in December 2002, after work had begun writing and practicing for the band’s first gig. The band’s name honors famed designers Charles and Ray Eames.

By 2003 the now complete lineup became “The Eames Era” and had begun recording a 3-track demo in Grant’s garage. Later that year the band signed on to the C Student Records label to release their first single “Could Be Anything” April 2004. After winning an award at the university’s annual independent film festival they embarked on their first tour along the east coast. Upon returning the band released “The Second EP” on the C Student label.

The album’s lead track Could Be Anything was featured on the Abercrombie & Fitch website and two television shows (Grey’s Anatomy and Falcon Beach) and had received major airplay on college radio stations nationwide. In October 2005, shortly after graduating from Louisiana State University, the band released their full-length debut Double Dutch. The week of the album’s release, the band’s tour bus got in an accident with a military truck on the way home from a photo shoot, thus canceling a tour booked for November that year.
