Eclipse is a vocal group of six creating explosive sound, driving rhythms, and lush harmonies using only one instrument: the human mouth.
The six members of Eclipse originally met while performing in a
public relations /ambassador-oriented group that was part of the department of Programs
and Entertainment at Utah State University. They began by arranging their
own vocal covers of popular songs and performing them on campus and in the Logan
area. Increasing public interest and performance opportunities led to the
recording of their first album, "Once," which was released in April 2001.
Following the release, the band''s main focus shifted to gaining exposure.
They auditioned for, and were accepted to compete in, the Northwest
Regional Harmony Sweepstakes Competition. They took first place and were
featured at the National Competition in May 2001 with the 8 other Regional
winners from around the nation.
In Utah, concerts and contacts continued and relationships were developed
as Eclipse began performing with local artists such as Colors, John
Schmidt, Peter Breinholt, and Kurt Bestor.
In September 2001, Eclipse was asked by Kenny Ortega, Olympic
Ceremonies Director, to perform a featured number in the Opening
Ceremonies for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games. This led to other
opportunities, including a featured spot in the Closing Ceremonies and a
series of appearances at the Medals Plaza opening for such acts as Brooks
& Dunn, Nelly Furtado, and Train.
Shortly after the Olympics, Eclipse was asked to be a featured guest along
with Larry King and Toby Keith at the "Stadium of Fire," the 4th of July
celebration at BYU''s Cougar Stadium.
Eclipse released their second album, "Think Twice," in October 2002.
They also became the 2002 winners of the Rocky Mountain Regional Harmony
In 2003, Eclipse was named "Best Vocal Group" in Utah''s Best of State Awards and "Group Recording Artist of the Year" in the Faith Centered Music Association''s Pearl Awards. Eclipse released their third CD, a Christmas album called "Three Kings", in October of 2003.
In 2004, Eclipse received three more Pearl Awards, including "Holiday Album of the Year," and were the runners-up for "Best Holiday Album" in the Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards. They also received two Just Plain Folks Music Awards (the world''s largest music awards program, honoring independent musicians in over 85 countries).
This live album captures the energy and excitement of Eclipse in concert and features many of the highly requested songs not found on any other Eclipse album, such as McDonald''s Girl, Every Other Time, and Eclipse''s Rap Medley. It will also include a rendition of My Maria featuring Peter Breinholt on lead vocals
