After less than 2 minutes of exposure on Bravo’s “Queer Eye for the Straight Girl” (a random untargeted demographic), Hyaline sells out on CD Baby (with over 88,000 bands), reaching Top Seller of the week in March 2005. Production of their second release “Schema” (co-produced with Ronan Chris Murphy who has worked with a virtual who’s who list of the some of the worlds greatest and most prestigious musicians) has just been completed. As tour dates line up, Hyaline is set to take over the west coast. Anticipation is high for their sophomore release as their first self-titled CD debuted to critical acclaim:
Sonic mastery as only true music entertainers may ever accomplish together (Nocturnal Movements)
A monumental accomplishment for a first album. This debut album is a must have for all serious collectors of rock music. The introduction of the electric violin into this eclectic mix was a stroke of genius. We all await your next album! (New Rock Cafe News)
The LA-based (band) is able to create deep, rich undertones that flow in a groove that is irresistible (VOXonline)
Their live sound and stage performance are truly awe-inspiring. The band plays together flawlessly while providing a stage show you won't be able to take your eyes off of (The Unsigned Music Network)
After playing to packed houses in Hollywood in clubs like The Roxy, The Whisky-a-Go-Go, and The Viper Room, headlining festivals like this years Third Eye Gathering, and playing with bands such as The Psychedelic Furs, members of The Cure, Incubus, Dada, Jane’s Addiction, and Porno for Pyros, Hyaline continues to build an impressive following throughout the West Coast from San Diego to Seattle. They have also begun to expand their following internationally in Australia, Germany, Denmark, and the UK. Their song “Candy Jar”, due to outstanding listener reviews, was featured as Rock Song of the Day on Garageband.com. Hyaline’s music is not only featured on a “making of” DVD for the Adidas commercial “Mechanical Legs”, directed by David Fincher (director of “Seven” and “Fight Club”), but also has been chosen for inclusion in extreme sports movies and videos like Peter Mortimer's "Return2sender", Winner of 3 Awards at the Boulder Adventure Film Festival. Hyaline has won the monthly “Spot Light” poll for four consecutive months, beating out over 1000 bands from around the world on the Unsigned Music Network, one of the internet’s largest independent music websites.
The future has arrived my friends, and its name is Hyaline (Campus Point, University of California, Santa Barbara)
