FOR RELEASE July 09, 2018
EUGENE, OR (July 9th, 2018) - Alternative rock band, Sometimes Blind, is planning a CD release party to celebrate their new EP, Morning Light. The release party will begin at 6:00PM on July 14th, 2018 at Sweet Cheeks Tasting Room at the Fifth Street Public Market. As part of the release party, they will be performing a two hour set. Copies of their new EP will be available in both physical and digital format. Digital retailers distributing Morning Light include CD Baby, Apple iTunes and Google Play.
Morning Light is the follow-up EP to the band's self-titled EP, which was released August 1st, 2017. Found on Morning Light is their song, "I'm Here", which is an energetic, powerful single that earned the band enough public votes to secure a spot in the Sprout City Studios: Battle of the Bands 2018 competition.

Formed in 2017, Sometimes Blind entwines the core threads of rock music into a melodic tapestry. Their sound is rooted upon Garrett Johnson's steady, grooving drums, and reinforced by Josh Laughlin's thumping, busy bass lines and Dan Van Ordstrand's fluid guitar rhythms; capped by Casey Martin's expressive, soulful vocals and injected with Matthew Goad's crisp, articulate guitar solos; all accented by Katie Johnson's delicate harmonies.
Notable achievements for the band include a feature article in the Spring 2018 edition of Emerald Valley Magazine, with the magazine saying of the band, "Blending several genres of music, Sometimes Blind mixes classic rock, folk, blues and jazz, into harmonious melodies that please the ear and sway the hips." They were also a Top 10 Local Finalist in the KNRQ Next2Rock Contest in the fall of 2017.
