Eden's Bridge has for over ten years, been the kind of band for whom self-promotion has not even been a mystery, merely an irrelevance. With this in mind, it is quite suprising that the band has sold something approaching one million albums and charted in the Billboard World Music Top Ten (USA).
The extremely short version of how it happened:
EB was formed in 1993 by Sarah Lacy, Richard Lacy and David Bird. We started as a group of songwriters, but the songs we were writing did not fall into any category that would make them easy to place with other artists, so Eden's Bridge (the band) was born as a home for the songs. Jon Large came in to play bass in 1994 and in 1995 the demo album "Fear No Evil" found it's way onto a useful desk at EMI in Nashville. Someone, somewhere did some paperwork and a modest £3000 changed hands. Terl Bryant completed the line up and along with a helping hand from Troy Donockley, the first album was completed. The rest as they say, is history.
The 2002 release of the acclaimed "Isle Of Tides", marked an important point for the band; this was the first album which had been made exactly as the band wanted it to be, with no outside influence.
Here we are now in 2007, as a seven-piece and with a selection of new songs languishing in various files, or as demos on computer hard-drives. I already think that we're writing our best songs to date, but gathering the seven-player momentum takes a while, but I would like to see the band back together in the studio later this year.
