The group formed in 1999 out of vocalist/guitarist Will Martin from Kansas, guitarist Mike Callahan from Ohio, French guitarist Scott Kohler, and drummer Dieter Hartmann from Austria. The foursome signed to Warner Bros. after the label heard their melodic metal and entered the studio with producer David Kahne. After the recording session, the record was polished up by mixer Andy Wallace and released in the summer of 2002 as Letting Go.
Having expanded the line-up to include bass player Johnny Sprague, Earshot spent much of that year on the road, touring and promoting their Warner Bros. debut album which hit #86 on The Billboard Top 200 chart; after months of sharing stages with the likes of Kid Rock and Stone Temple Pilots, the group had played their songs to thousands of appreciative fans, who recognized two popular radio hits; both of the singles, Get Away and Not Afraid, climbed into The Mainstream Rock Tracks chart reaching the #6 and #24 spots, respectively.
Following the departure of Hartmann, Earshot pulled in drummer Chas Stumbo and in June 2004 released Two; the band's sophomore effort failed to rise above #127 on The Billboard 200 Albums list, however it yielded a couple of Active Rock hit singles, Wait peaked at #13 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart and Someone hit the top 30.
