LOCKDOWN HURRICANE 2023 Tour
A musical project that weds a rich variety of off-kilter pop influences with deeply personal lyrics often obsessing over the darker sides of human experience, Eels is the rubric used by singer, songwriter, and musician Mark Oliver Everett (aka E) for the music he creates with a rotating group of collaborators. Everett has been the sole constant throughout the Eels' career, making music that's daring and emotionally revealing, sometimes sounding warm and organic (2005's Blinking Lights and Other Revelations and 2010's End Times), sometimes deliberately discordant and full of noisy textures (2001's Souljacker), but most often rooted in a melodic sense that manages to shine through even when the arrangements turn up the static (as on his 1996 debut Beautiful Freak, a strong exercise in bent indie pop). As his career progressed, E developed a greater interest in electronics (as in 2018's The Deconstruction), but he showed he hadn't lost touch with guitar-based rock on 2022's Extreme Witchcraft.
Born in Virginia on April 9, 1963, Everett became interested in rock music at an early age via his sister's record collection and began playing drums at the age of six, as well as tinkering on his family's piano. Everett led a troubled life as a teenager, which was further complicated by his father's death. The turmoil led to an even stronger interest in music, and he taught himself how to play his sister's guitar and began writing his own original compositions. (Tragedy would later form the catalyst for Eels' magnum opus, Electro-Shock Blues.)
