Eisley Biography

Last updated: 06/06/2012 12:00:00 PM

The Band's Origin: Initially known as the Towheads, the DuPree siblings got their start playing gigs at BrewTones Coffee Galaxy in their hometown of Tyler, Texas. They soon became MossEisley, a reference to the city in the Star Wars trilogy, but later (after a brief stint playing under the names Neverland or Sinclair) shortened the name due to possible legal ramifications. As Eisley, they grew a devoted local fan base, and in early 2003 they were signed to Warner Brothers Records, through Nettwerk Management. Around that time, Coldplay was beginning the U.S. portion of their Sudden Rush of Blood tour, and they asked Eisley to open for them. So just after releasing their first EP, Laughing City, Eisley found themselves in the enviable position of touring with a world-famous rock band.
