Formed in 2004 by frontman Johnny Yong Bosch and Maurice Salmin, Eyeshine first found success in 2006 with a unique blend of pop punk and post grunge called Edge Rock. The band gained a modest audience with its debut EP, "How About That" and their first full-length album, "Red Stripes White Lights" but it was their sophomore effort, "My Paper Kingdom" that officially opened the floodgates in 2009. MPK featured their award winning song, ALONE, whose honest and simple lyrics made a connection to a steadily growing fan base. The band has continued to self produced 2 more albums, "Tone Of Echoes" and "Afterglow" and are currently in the studio recording their 6th and 7th CDs. The band has been touring across the nation since 2006.

Band members include: Johnny Yong Bosch (guitar and lead vocals), Maurice Salmin (drums, piano, vocals), Crystal Mesina (bass) and Eddie Colmenares (lead guitar). Check out Eyeshine's website at http://www.eyeshine.net/
