The Music of Earthshine


The music we love ...

Kris and Scott were brought together by shared love of music... specifically the seminal Canadian band Rush. In fact, they made their acquaintance in a record store! Fancy that!

However, their respective musical influences are distinct from one another to a large extent, and they theorize that this is part of what makes their music the richly far-ranging musical potpourri that it is.

The following lists were created by each a few years ago to give Earthshine fans some sense of where we feel we come from musically. (sorry about the 1st to third person shifts there...)

Kris's Influences:

Baroque Classical Music

Medieval European Music

Organ Music of 17th - 20th century

Rush, Pink Floyd, Heart, Kansas, Alan Parsons Project, Styx, Joni Mitchell, Bruce Cockburn, Jethro Tull, Black Sabbath/Ozzy, Queensryche, Judas Priest

Ethnic Music! Especially Middle Eastern, East Indian, all kinds of Asian music and music of the Pacific Islands.

Also: Ray Lynch, Brian Eno, Jean Michele Jarre

Scott's Influences :


Beatles, Black Sabbath, Graham Bonnet, Cheap Trick, Bruce Cockburn, Bob Dylan, The Doors, Iron Maiden, Jackson 5, Jethro Tull, Elton John, Judas Priest, Kansas/Kerry Livgren, Kings X, Kiss, Gary Moore, Pink Floyd, Queen, Queensryche, Rail, Rush, Dan Reed Network, Glen Kaiser/Rez Band, Thin Lizzy/Phil Lynott, U2, UFO, Yes
