Grey Eye Glances
Dwayne Keith, songwriter and keyboard player for Grey Eye Glances, said band members would get no income from the current album until the shareholders were repaid their initial investments.
"The band sees nothing," he said, even though investors are already getting quarterly distributions from the album sales. The band does get money from its performances and sales of past albums, he said. Grey Eye Glances' music is in the "adult alternative" genre. Keith compared the music to that of artist Sarah McLachlan, or the band 10,000 Maniacs. Two albums the group recorded under the Mercury Records label, Eventide (1997) and Painted Pictures (1998), have sold almost 100,000 copies combined, Keith said. Rather than being a band in search of a record label, Grey Eye Glances members said they opted out of the Mercury contract after Mercury was absorbed into Universal. "We realized that with things changing... the record companies were playing a smaller role in the business," said Keith, 34, of Blue Bell. "We don't stay in fancy hotels, and we don't get limoed around, and all the things that rock stars usually do," Keith said.

In fact, pianist/vocalist Dwayne Keith, who joined forces with lead singer/12string guitarist Jennifer Nobel and bassist/vocalist Eric O'Dell in Philadelphia three years ago, worked at two Borders outlets prior to commencing pre-production on "Eventide" a year ago.
"I started in the espresso bar as a coffee person and worked my way to special orders and corporate accounts, and ended up as CRC, or community relations coordinator," says Keith, who worked at Borders' Marlton, N.J., store for three years before moving over to the chain's Chestnut Hill location in Philadelphia. "We thought of calling ourselves 'Borders,' " Keith adds, "but it would probably have been a pain in the neck!" Perhaps, but the bookstore chain has always been wholly supportive of Grey Eye Glances, and thanks to Keith's CRC position-which involved booking bands and author events at the store-he was perfectly situated to help bring the group's music to has become the 126-store Borders Books & Music web. What is now Grey Eye Glances formed as Sojourn in 1991, though Keith and O'Dell had met 12 years earlier playing street hockey, and Keith and Nobel had toured Europe in 1985 as part of the American Music Abroad choir.

"There wasn't music in the Borders world at the time," says Keith, "but we had the band together and decided to set up and play on a Friday night [at the Marlton outlet] and went over so well that we played twice a month for two years-and then at all the Borders stores in the area." But when Dwayne mentioned how they had built a huge fan base through playing at various Borders stores in Philadelphia and the south New Jersey area, I thought it was too good to be true. "Then I saw them perform at Borders and draw over 200 fans, and I knew I was on to a band that had both a distinctive sound and a distinctive way of selling themselves." "Eventide," which was produced in Nashville by Glenn Rosenstein and engineered by Steve Boyer (Peter Gabriel's "So"), is something of a "compilation of everything we've written to this point," notes Keith, and includes new recordings of three songs from "Further On . . ." mixed in with fresh material. For his part, loyal ex-employee Keith is more than happy to return to the Borders circuit. "We've turned down big offers from Barnes & Noble-which is a great chain, too-but Borders got us going early in," he says.
