20 years after releasing two critically acclaimed albums, the British-American duo Eye to Eye strides back onto the music scene with a third album, aptly titled 'Clean Slate.' American vocalist, Deborah Berg, and British keyboard player, Julian Marshall, present an album embracing musical styles from old school R&B to bossa nova, from folk to big band. Produced by Rhett Davies (Roxy Music, Bryan Ferry), the CD was rated #6 in MOJO's Top Ten Picks (October 2005). 'Clean Slate' has been called 'jazz-tinged, well-played, beautifully sung' (Record Collector). The eleven songs cover diverse themes: from full-bodied, mature love to the high-wire act of balancing motherhood and selfhood. The album starts with 'Scenes By A Wishing Well,' featuring The Uptown Horns (Rolling Stones, Robert Plant), a snapshot of a modern mom trying to gracefully ride the wave of daily life. The CD closes with the title track, an upbeat meditation on the redemptive renewal of nature and time. Eye to Eye was born in 1980 after a chance encounter between Julian Marshall and Deborah Berg at a dance performance in San Diego. Soon after, Deborah and Julian had a tape of demos and a record deal with Warner Brothers in the works. Eye to Eye's first album, 'Eye to Eye,' was produced by Gary Katz (Steely Dan) and yielded the Billboard Top 40 single 'Nice Girls.' The album was well reviewed by the New York Times and sold over 80,000 copies in the U.S. After their second album, 'Shakespeare Stole My Baby,' Julian and Deborah put the band on hiatus while they both dedicated their time to family and other pursuits. They are thrilled to share their new album with you!
