Formed in 1999 with singer Wil Martin collaborating with original bassist Guy Couturier, drummer Dieter Hartman, and guitarist Scott Kohler, Los Angeles based heavy modern rock band, Earshot, released their debut album, LETTING GO (produced by David Kahne and mixed by Andy Wallace) in 2002 on Warner Bros. Records. Guitarist Mike Callahan and replacement bassist Johnny Sprague joined the band shortly after their debut album was completed.
During months of extensive touring with the likes of Hoobastank, Shinedown, Staind, Kid Rock, and Stone Temple Pilots, their debut single, “Get Away,” reached #4 on the U.S. Active Rock radio Charts and stayed in the top 100 for over 64 weeks, while “Headstrong” was featured on The Queen of The Damned soundtrack alongside other artists such as Disturbed, Deftones and Marilyn Manson.
In 2003, Earshot returned to the studio to begin work on their second album, TWO (produced by Johnny K. and mixed by Rich Costey), released in 2004 on Warner Bros. Records. Their breakout single, “Wait,” reached #9 on U.S. Active Rock radio Charts while also being featured on the hugely successful Madden NFL 2005 and MX vs. ATV Unleashed video game soundtracks.
After parting ways with Warner Bros. Records in 2005, Earshot signed with Indegoot/Fontana/Universal Recordings in 2007, and began work on their third album, THE SILVER LINING, (produced by Brian Garcia and Wil Martin and mixed by Mike Watts). The album spawned the bands fifth charting radio single “MisSunderstood”.
In 2015, after a long hiatus from the music scene, Earshot independently released their long-awaited 4th studio recording, AFTERMATH (produced by Wil Martin and mixed by Sam Hughes), a five-song mini-LP. The album launched with the release of the E.P.'s first single, "Now That It's Over", and concluded with an intimate re-recorded acoustic performance of “Fall Apart”, previously released on the band’s second and most beloved album, “TWO”.
