Editors’ Notes

Eli Young’s kind of country is an honest alchemy that ferments metal-tinged grunge-pop and rootsy singer/songwriter folk songs into a hearty blend of distorted, catchy, twangy, country-rock that is ever changing in its tempos and tones. “Small Town Kid” opens Level (the band’s sophomore studio effort) like a bouncy Mellencamp hit, reflecting on simple, small-town living where a good truck, a fishing spot, a loving companion, and a weekend saloon are all a man needs to be fulfilled. “So Close Now” makes an unlikely marriage of pop-metal guitars and honky-tonk pedal steel work in symbiosis under airtight vocal harmonies with lyrics about a dire need for change and the unbridled enthusiasm that increasingly rises with each step taken toward packing up and heading out into a new life. “Oklahoma Girl,” is a moody and mellow rocker about a short-lived tryst with an arresting muse from the song’s namesake state. “Everything Is You” could very well be the tune’s sequel as he sings an impassioned ballad about being haunted by everything that reminds him of his former lover.

Customer Reviews

My favortie Eli Young Band CD ever.

This is by far my favorite Eli Young Band CD ever! I own all four of their albums but this is the one that spends the most time in my cd player. Highways and Broken Hearts is a must, and is quite frankly their best song. I've seen them countless times live and they are one hell of a live act.

One of the best!

I went and saw them last night at City Limits, with my best friend and they are amazing live, their albums are great but the band is way better live!!! I was so mad when Level was taken off of here, but now its back and I am so happy! By far it's my favorite of their albums.

Great CD!

This is easily Eli Young Band's best CD. Jet Black & Jealous is also very well done, but I believe that this CD shows Eli Young in their best, truest form. All of the songs on the album are exceptionally good, especially "Small Town Kid," "Everything Is You," and "So Close Now." I would recommend this album to anyone who enjoys some good country rock and roll!

Biography

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Fusing a young man's take on heartland rock with the tougher side of Texas country music and the cocky enthusiasm of alt-country firebrands, the Eli Young Band have become a potent draw in the Southwest on the strength of local airplay and extensive touring. The Eli Young Band's story began when Mike Eli and James Young both enrolled at the University of North Texas and found themselves sharing a dorm room as freshmen. Both played guitar, and the two new friends started writing and singing songs...
