  • Bright Eyes

    Bright Eyes’ songwriter/mastermind Conor Oberst emerged in the late ’90s as an immensely talented but angst-ridden teen from Omaha, Nebraska, and over the last decade has matured into an internationally celebrated musician that has toured with Bruce Springsteen, collaborated with Gillian Welch, and earned comparisons to Bob Dylan. While he’s embraced everything from folk to indie rock and electronic music, at the core of Bright Eyes’ sound is Oberst’s raw, poetic narratives, haunting balladry, fragile but powerful voice, and fervent political commentary. The band’s core lineup consists of singer/guitarist Oberst, multi-instrumentalist/producer Mike Mogis, and trumpeter/pianist Nate Walcott, with a rotating cast of musicians largely culled from the Omaha music scene. Saddle Creek, the band’s label that Oberst co-founded at age 13, has not only helped shine a spotlight on the “Omaha sound,” it was one of the first new indie labels to release all of its music on vinyl with digital download cards. It is how Bright Eyes’ music was meant to be heard.
