A folk-rock unit within the mildew of such common illustrations as Fairport Convention or Renaissance, Gray Eyes Glances formed in NJ early within the ’90s around vocalist/guitarist Jennifer Nobel, key pad participant/vocalist Dwayne Keith and bassist Eric O’Dell. As befitting their literary pretensions — their name originates from the poem “TO 1 in Heaven” by Edgar Allan Poe — the group started playing occasional displays in a close by Edges Book Store, rather than the nightclubs organic to most rings. The trio released the eight-song mini-LP Music of Leaving in-may 1993 to market at displays (independently JED Information) and implemented up with Further On… twelve months later. After arranging a tour greater than 50 Edges locations through the entire Middle Atlantic, Gray Eye Glances agreed upon to Parachute/Mercury, had been joined up with by Echolyn drummer Paul Ramsey and guitarist Brett Kull, and released their major-label debut Eventide in 1997. Decorated Pictures implemented in 1998.
