Alec K. Redfearn and the Eyesores, Layne Garrett

Alec K. Redfearn and the Eyesores
Alec K Redfearn is a musician, songwriter and composer who has created music for dance, theater, and film. He has also developed a unique style of playing the accordion, introducing elements commonly associated with the guitar such as distortion, drone, and noise. He has performed on accordion and recorded in several ensembles of which he also composes for, such as Amoebic Ensemble, Barnacled, Beat Circus, and most notably, the Eyesores.

The Eyesores are a large and powerful nine-piece band from Providence, Rhode Island. They are a genre-bending ensemble that combines a vast array of influences such as old-time Americana, acid folk, and Eastern European music with their own unorthodox instrumentation. This band is simultaneously drawing from the 'primitive' and 'avant-garde' esthetic, and blending together this huge range of styles into a distinctive and charming sound that leaves their audiences equally enthralled and confused.
