Eli Young Band switches labels

Wednesday, February 10, 2010 – The Eli Young Band, newly nominated for "Top New Vocal Group" by the Academy Of Country Music, switched to the Republic Nashville roster. The Eli Young Band switched from Universal Republic/Universal South Records. Universal South merged with Toby Keith's ShowDog Nashville label.

Guinevere, a song from the band's national debut on Universal South, "Jet Black & Jealous," will be the first single released through Republic Nashville with the release coming in "the coming weeks," according to the group's publicist.

"This band was born with the fans, grown with the fans and continues to prosper and thrive with the fans on every level," said Jimmy Harnen, President of Republic Nashville. "It is both exciting and an honor to welcome the Eli Young Band to Republic Nashville."

Scott Borchetta, President/CEO Big Machine Label Group, said, "I've been following the build and momentum of EYB for quite some time. This isn't the first time I've tried to sign them, but we've got them now, and we can't wait to get to work." Borchetta and Harnen formed the label.

The band had a top 10 single with Always The Love Songs. The band will also join the Country Throwdown tour this summer along with Jamey Johnson, Montgomery Gentry, Jack Ingram, Little Big Town, and Eric Church.

They have responded with "Fingerprints," their first full length album since 2014's "10,000 Towns." Though clearly not as blatantly pop as the downright danceable EP, ...
CD review - Turn It On With the release of "Turn It On," the Eli Young Band brings new music about girls, love, and...disco. Singer Mike Eli, who co-wrote all four songs, is in fine voice, solidifying the EYB sound. The title cut, written with co-founder James Young, with its strong beat and up-front vocals, is tailor-made for listening while driving fast. With its "driving" beat and sing-along chorus, speeding tickets may increase. "Plastic" is about appreciating a girl who is ...
