Earthsuit's stellar debut, Kaleidoscope Superior,
is a musically innovative melting pot that, like America, somehow
holds together despite the diversity. Produced by David Leonard
(Indigo Girls, John Mellancamp, Toto, Oingo Boingo, Prince), Kaleidoscope
Superior succeeds by weaving its seemingly disparate elements
through the whole project rather than changing styles from track
to track. Something of a retrospective debut, the project encompasses
Earthsuit's newly written material, as well as a sampling of the
more seasoned compositions they began creating as far back as
five years ago.
Songs like the jazzy, hip-hoppish, pop gem "Whitehorse",
(which takes so many left turns musically that it winds up back
where it started), express that hunger in an almost palpable way.
Superimposing apocalyptic imagery over day-to-day reality, "Whitehorse"
creates a dreamy, harmonic soundscape that looks not so much to
the Son of God's eventual return, as to his constantly abiding
Honing their chops during a year and a half span
as nightly performers in a New Orleans Bourbon Street coffee house,
Adam and Paul not only began to experiment with their eclectic
hybrid of pop music, but they began to meet other musicians who's
artistic visions mirrored their own. Guitarist Dave Rumsey and
Bass player Roy Mitchell eventually joined the lineup, as did
drummer David Hutchison. The band so seldom ventured out of their
New Orleans haunts, however, that when they were eventually discovered
by a Sparrow label rep at a summer music festival in 1999, it
was as if they had come out of nowhere. Earthsuit was arguably
the best-kept unsigned secret in recent music history.

Hey, how's it goin? I love the group earthsuit.
They are clearly very talented. I have however, some concerns.
"One Time" and "Said The Sun To The Shine"-just to mention two don't
have a clear message. Could you fill me in on what they are about.
Also, the word "damn" in your lyrics of Against the
Grain should be spelled "Dam". I would really appreciate
it if you could give me some feedback.

Earthsuit in my opinion is one of the best bands
in the industry. Their music rocks; it's so unique and creative...their
lyrics too. They show a true love for Jesus in their music that's
rare in a lot christian artists. I love everything about them!
Earthsuit are so good!
I went and saw them @ Sonfest in Boonah. They have
so much potential and could really get right up in to the top
5 christian bands. You can see that they aren't just playing for
themselves but for Jesus and I really think that he is going to
bless them so much in their life.
I love them!
