One EskimO

London's One EskimO comes to Madison Friday, on tour with paisanos Gomez and supporting their own debut album, All Balloons. Their and icy music showcases vocalist Kristian Leontiou's lyrics and vocals. Leontiou channels Michael Stipe as much as Dave Matthews (don't hold it against him), Damien Rice and Gomez's Ben Ottewell-- which is to say, his vocals are quite nice. But perhaps more than that, it's the creativity surrounding the band.

First, there is no shortage of writing in this band's resumé-- first clue is their blog. But it doesn't stop there. The Adventures of One EskimO, a visual album as the band calls it, is an animated set to Balloons.

Check this space over the next few days for an exclusive interview with the band as well as a ticket giveaway to see them at the Majestic opening for Gomez. In the meantime, check out EskimoSpace or their website to stream some tunes. Check WB for more info about the visual album.

Now Writing for

Howdee all....

I have recently joined the local dispatch of online newspaper I'd greatly appreciate it if you would subscribe to my page, to stay current with Madison's local music scene as well as to help my ratings!

Simply take this link and to the right of my lovely photo, click 'subscribe'. Don't worry, you won't get spammed by the site-- you'll just receive news of my articles. Feel free to comment on stories at will [it can be anonymous, too-- no login necessary!] as that helps out my cause a little, too.

Hopefully writing for them will mean the slow demise of this here masterpiece, OHWNT, will be staved off a little. Only time will tell. I still like giving my opinion, which I'm not supposed to be doing over there, so.... yeah.


If you are in PR or representing a band in some manner or another and are coming to Madison, please email me @ MadisonMusicExaminer[at]gmail[dot]com so I can report on it!

Have a great day.
