EIN is made up of Mike Mattingly, guitar, Rick White, bass guitar and Garey Williams, drums.
EIN writes and performs unique music, period. Their sound is modern...combining hints of jazz, r&b, funk, reggae, latin, rock and world beat music...an art form whose full potential expands as you will it. Many of their melodies play back in your head with interlocking guitar, bass and drum riffs with mood inducing harmonies making sophisticated ideas instantly accessible. Their recordings and performances utilize the power of imaginative improvisation to create dramatically experiential environments.
To hear EIN you will encounter ORIGINAL music...new, fresh, spontaneous, improvisational, adventurous...simply put, not background music.
