Flashbacks is an EarthStone project with Eddie on lead & rhythm guitar and Rodney on keys and samples(bass & flute), sax, vocals, rhythm programming, occasional hand percussion, & a very little bit of guitar. Originally conceived as a blues/gospel/early r&b jam series, the collaboration blossomed into a romp across blues infused styles from more traditional approaches thru blues & swamp rock to 80's rock and even a bit of world fusion/blues.
Why this name?
When we got together in my studio several years ago, the 1st cover tune Eddie & I jammed on was 'Lo Spark of Hi Heeled Boys'. That coupled with the older styles we were writing in for this, led to the project/name(Flashbacks) from early on. EarthStone is the name of the band thru various members.
Do you play live?
We have performed live at several private parties here in Austin, but are not playing live this summer(2008).
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Maybe, maybe not. Exact terms would require careful scrutiny.
Band History:
Intrepid rock&roller Eddie's musical journey began in a suburb of Detroit upon hearing the howling guitar of Jimi Hendrix, the surreal music and lyrics of the Doors, the trippy sounds of early psychedelic garage bands like the 13th floor elevators, the psychedelic acid rock of the 60's San Francisco bands, and the rumbling guitar thunder of all the bands from the "classic rock" era of the late 60"s and 70"s. "At the age of 20 I picked up the guitar and have not stopped since, 21 years and going. At the age of 27, a few years after being totally amazed and inspired by witnessing the live virtuosity of SRV, I decided to move to Austin, Tx. to study the blues style of SRV. Once in Austin I honed my blues skills, played some open mics, and then --weirdly enough-- did some country gigs with a Texas singer songwriter. After doing this for a while I soon realized that I would not and did not want to become the next SRV. Burned out on the Austin blues scene I was introduced to the world music of Spanish flamenco, Middle Eastern music, classical Indian music, and the gypsy fusion that Oliver Rajamani and the Gypsies were doing at the White Rabbit on 6th street. During this time I formally studied Spanish Flamenco guitar in Austin for 2 years from local flamenco guitarist and performer Teye Winterp and also started playing the middle eastern Oud. After moving back to Austin after a 3 year stint in Tennessee I joined the Nelson Saga band (Alma de Arma) and played lead guitar for his Latin fusion band. After leaving Nelson's band I started playing in a blues and hard rock band with female blues vocalist Shannon Sculley, with whom I am still writing and playing with at the present time. At a house party gig I was doing with Shannon I met Rodney Roach and have been collaborating with him ever since. -- Rock on, baby!!!"

Rodney started piano around 5 1/2 & has continued to explore with other instruments in his musical journeys. "I've played c&w, fusion, rock, punk, d&b, r&b, blues, reggae, funk, latin, jazz, afropop, etc. I more or less like all of them, but my favorite is world beat/groove music. I met Eddie when I was co-hosting a monthly musician's jam party in S. Austin. We originally got together to explore/jam various music arising from gospel/blues roots. These jams are what occurred!
