Eye Talk Bio:
Eye Talk is a recording and live performance group fronted by singer-songwriter Alan Clark. Alan is the lead vocalist and produces and performs various instruments in the studio. Alan’s brother, Bob Clark, provides songwriting, bass guitar and vocals to the mix. Since 2002, Eye Talk has produced three CD recordings with a range of special guest artists contributing vocals, guitars, keyboards, samples, saxophone, and trumpet performances. Special guests from previous Eye Talk releases include Steve Jansen (David Sylvian, Nine Horses), Iva Davies (Icehouse), Jamie West-Oram (The Fixx), Rupert Greenhall (The Fixx), John D. Willis (Shania Twain), Wes Hightower (George Strait, Carrie Underwood), Liana Manis (Chely Wright), Jerry Donato and Randy Tyler.
Eye Talk received their break in 1999 when Alan was touring in Northern California. On that tour, Alan met Dave Kent, who was, at the time David Sylvian’s engineer. Kent agreed to produce some rock demos which became the basis for a limited release called, “This Time.”
Soon thereafter, Alan relocated to Arizona and joined Bob Clark to create a lighter version of the Eye Talk sound. In 2002, Dave Kent and Alan Clark produced the CD, “Phoenix,” with special guests Steve Jansen and Iva Davies. “Phoenix,” received critical acclaim and was a favorite among music critics around the world.
In 2004, Alan and Bob returned back to the studio and recorded their next effort, “Anything Is Possible,” and while recording this CD, met Jamie West-Oram and Rupert Greenhall from the 80s/MTV video pop band The Fixx. Jamie and Rupert agreed to contribute special guest performances on the track, “Blue Room.” Randy Tyler, a long time musical mentor for Eye Talk, contributed trumpet performances on two tracks on the CD while Steve Jansen contributed on drums to three of the tracks. “Anything Is Possible,” was released in the summer of 2005 and was featured in the Top 10 on radio in Sardinia, Italy.
Eye Talk have just finished recording their lastest CD, “Sun and Moon” and will be released on January 23, 2007. The lead single, “I Can’t Fool Myself” will impact light pop and adult contemporary radio stations on January 8, 2007. The new release features some of Nashville’s top session musicians and is the next step in Eye Talk’s defining light pop sound.
