Eostar and the WEB of ONE
Eostar and the WEB of ONE is based in the San Francisco Bay Area of California where they are one of the freshest and most unique bands of the West Coast conscious, psychedelic and jamband music scene.
Music with this 5 piece band is a journey into the heart on the wings of the transcendental jamband sound, original devotional poetry and dance-inspiring grooves. Founders, Eostar and Mathias blend their uniquely different musical notions into a living and breathing performance geared toward uplifting consciousness and reaching for the ultimate beyond-this-world experience through long improvisational sections. Their sound is intended to resonate in the deepest of one’s heart, transporting one into a state of bliss through becoming one with this most exquisite musical blend of electric and acoustic guitars, keyboards, drum and bass .
Mathias’ melodic and trance-inducing improvisational guitar playing add an element of psychedelic depth and a syncopated groove to the cosmic, neo-devotional sound of this music.
Influenced by psychedelic rock, New Age guitar, jazz, world music and funk, Mathias’ virtuosity comes alive through hypnotizing improvised guitar solos that take the listener on a journey into the depths of one’s self. Infamously from the counter-cultural band DOUBLE DOSE, he toured the country many times playing multiple festivals, including the H.O.R.D.E tour, Oregon Country Fair, Mystic Garden Party, Harmony Festival, Dreamtime Festival, Rainbow Gatherings, Burningman and many more for over 2 decades. He has released 3 CD’s with Double Dose and opened for many legends including Jorma Kaukonen, Warren Zevon, Dave Mason, Merle Saunders, Widespread Panic, Blues traveler and many more.
Original songwriter Eostar’s musical gifts revealed themselves to her at the foothills of the sacred Mount Shasta where she embraced yoga, shamanic journeying, singing, guitar and songwriting as a spiritual path to awakening. Eostar’s songs – while preserving the depth of ancient philosophical wisdom and sometimes Sanskrit Vedic lines – always bring a new and unique flavor of a trance-like shamanic overtone to the emerging Western Conscious Culture. With a special gift and knack for melody, Eostar effortlessly channels beautiful songs from the muse and has amassed a vast repertoire of original sacred songs over the last 12 years.
Eostar has 2 CD releases of her original songs prior to WEB of ONE, both with her band “Fearless Love”. The first album “Devotion” (2008) and her second one, “Rose and Lotus” (2011) were both recorded and produced at Om Studios in Oregon. In 2013 Eostar and Mathias released “West Coast Alive!” – a collection of live recordings from their 2012 tour. “Illuminate” – their first studio recording was released in 2016 and it is a collection of Eostar’s original songs produced by Mathias and co-produced by Eostar and Grammy nominee studio engineer Tim Gennert. This album has many outstanding musicians contributing to the original sound being a blend of psychedelic jamband and devotional World Music: Wally Ingram (Sheryl Crow, David Lindley, Tracy Chapman) on drums, Zoltan Lantos ( Lorena McKennett) on violin, Jason Crosby (Phil Lesh) on keyboard, Joe Craven (Jerry Garcia/Grisman, David Grisman Quintet) on violin and mandolin, Jared May (Tina Malia, Luminaries) on bass, Evan Fraser (Hamsa Lila, Dirtwire) on ngoni, Ian Dogole (Ancient Future) on hang just to name a few.
