" I've been reveling in the sound and feel of your songs, all very powerful-
instrumentally, vocally, spiritually. There's a cascading life force in each one." Mercedes
"We love your tunes, they are all great "the only one","rushing
past" but "rise above" is the best- great words of inspiration!

"“Rise Above“ is the first
solo release by John Eggers, a veteran of the DC Indie Rock scene.
On this intensely personal collection of songs, Eggers plays all the instruments
with well-crafted agility and sings in a voice that walks across the tightrope of
power and tenderness.
But it is the haunting, dreamlike-quality of John’s lead vocals blended with
his own backing vocals, which remind one of personal battles with the inner voices
in our own heads. Exploring themes such as love, innocence, alienation and dreams
deferred, this album moves beyond introspection and plants a brilliant flag of defiance
in the hard ground of existence.
Each time you listen to “Rise Above“, you will hear new things and dream
new dreams. This is an exciting, solid effort from a thoughtful and unique musical
