“The members of Eye Empire have all seen success in the past through other ensembles. The origin of the band began in 2007 when Corey Lowery (Stuck Mojo / Stereomud / Dark New Day) and B.C. Kochmit (Switched) began to collaborate. Lowery remembers, “BC and I started playing together when he was in Switched, and I knew that he would be the guitar player that I would one day create something special and lasting with. He has a great sense of melody with rhythm and solos and a great understanding of arrangement and what’s best for the song. He knows the difference between shredding and holding one note, and making that one note sing. He truly has his own style as an artist.”
After a couple of years of writing and searching for the right voice, Donald Carpenter (Submersed) joined in October 2009. Lowery recalls, “I met him Halloween three years ago and from the first note he sang, I knew he was something special. He treats his voice like an instrument, always focused, pushing himself to finding new voices with each song. Lyrically, he believes in what he is singing. Never preaching, but expressing what he’s been through or seen in his life on the road. He’s always focused and loves the process of studio, and then he makes it come to life with the live show.” Former Texas Hippie Coalition drummer Ryan Bennett joined in 2011, whom Lowery believes is, “One of the baddest drummers to come to the rock ‘n roll scene in years. Grabbing some of his favorite drummers and making his own style with Eye Empire. He’s the guy that is always smiling staying positive until he gets behind the drums then he explodes.”
