Few words from Eli about XY MIDIpad:
Amp Tone Lab is providing an entirely new musical palette for artists like me who want to take my sound further that just typical clean, distortion, and common guitar effects. Their product is of the highest quality and I would strongly recommend to anyone that’s interested in modifying their guitar with an XY MIDI controller.
Eli in his own words:
My name is Eli Grey and I have been a nation touring musician for many years of my life. I am currently the guitarist for Sister Soleil, Controlled by Lights and The Attraction. I was previously a member of the Gelheads and Best Days Behind
Sister Soleil was formerly signed to Universal records from 1998 to 2002. They have recently reformed with original members Stella Katsoudas, Grey Parker, and new additions, Eli Grey and Peter Bisinov.
The Attraction was signed to Japanese label Radtone and had a single on Chicago Modern Rock Radio Station Q101, as well as having our song, “The Bleeding” included in Q101’s Local 101 Volume 3 CD. The Attraction was hand picked open up many special events opening up for acts such as Scott Ian of Anthrax’s The Damned Things, playing a live on air radio broadcast opening for Anberlin, sharing the stage with former Columbia Records artist The Ataris, Atlantic record artist Bad City, current Beiler Brother Recording Artist Egypt Central, and Mordern Short Stories artist Farraday.
The Gelheads were a nationally touring act who attracted attention from the Major labels and performed showcases in Los Angeles and Detroit for many prominent A&R people.
Best Days Behind played shows with and toured the entire country with bands that are big names today like Soul Asylum, Hit the Lights, Plain White T’s, The Academy is…, and Punchline. They were signed to former Alkaline Trio and Smoking Popes drummer Mike Felumlee’s Double Zero records, and recorded their album with Jamie Woolford of the bands Animal Chin, The Stereo, and Let Go. BDB also recorded an EP at The Get Up Kids studio in Eudora, KS with producer ED Rose, and recorded their first single with Sean O’Keefe who recorded Hawthorn Heights platinum selling debut record and Fall Out Boy’s Take this to Your Grave.
