This week's serving of "Albums That Changed My Life" goodness comes from Sherri Dupree-Bemis of Eisley!
The band are currently gearing up for their upcoming headline tour kicking off next month, in support of their stunning new EP, "Deep Space".
The Beatles - Abbey Road
When I was a kid, I would put the cassette of this in my player and listen to it over and over. I'm a massive Beatles fan, but it's always been my favorite and I still listen to it constantly. "Oh Darling" is one of the best songs ever written and "Here Comes the Sun" has some of the best harmonies ever sung.
This record is the number one record that changed my musical life. It was the first time I had heard Radiohead and it blew me away! I couldn't believe there existed a band who played guitar like this or wrote such weird lyrics. It really influenced my own approach towards songwriting and I have definitely played this record more than any other record in my life!
Kent - Isola
When I was about 17 I heard a song from this album playing in a record store and had to go ask the clerk who it was. I bought the record on the spot and it was the best impulse buy of my musical life! Their guitar tones are something to marvel at and their melodies are gorgeous.
The title-track to this is in my top 10 favorite songs of all time. I fell in love with this record the first time a friend let me hear it. The lyrics are strange and interesting and the record has a raw, beautiful feeling that most bands could only dream of capturing in a recording.
