Between sold out tours of Australia and Canada in 2016, Jeff Martin (The Tea Party) invited Secret Solis to record their debut EP, Deep Down at River House Studios near Byron Bay. The result being an EP of Indie folk / rock anthems, the tracks resonating with both Led Zeppelin’s driving acoustic rock and the ethereal ballads of Pink Floyd. Jeff’s eastern palette adds an eclectic flavour to the Deep Down EP that is reminiscent of his early albums with The Tea Party, as in Splendor Solis and Edges of Twilight.
Secret Solis was formed in 2012 when Cairns based singer/songwriter, Kian Eder met Cally Pysden, a pianist and singer/songwriter from Adelaide. Before meeting Cally, Kian’s music was heavily influenced by bands like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Tea Party and A Perfect Circle and acoustic / rock cross-over artists like Ben Harper. Collaborating with Cally added a new dimension to Kian’s vision, elevating the music to new heights with her soaring ethereal vocals the likes of Enya, Dido, Sia and Amy-Lee. Enter Jeff Martin as producer and musician using production techniques straight out of Jimmy Page’s playbook, and you have a special magic happening in the mix.
Jeff Martin agreed to produce the band after hearing only a few seconds of their demo, ‘Speechless Soul’, and the rest is history. Jeff plays all the heavy guitars including some amazing solos, hurdy gurdy and synths including his boutique Theremin. He also sings on the bands debut single, ‘Sunshine’ (out now on iTunes).
Secret Solis’ EP Deep Down, produced by Jeff Martin, will be launched on the 16th of June 2017, with a European tour to follow. The duo is excited to collaborate with European world and rock musicians to create their ultimate full-band line up for future shows.
The duo are currently seeking expressions of interest from labels, management, booking agencies, marketing companies and musicians to take this newly defined sound to the next level.
