Through the crazy world of the internet I was introduced to Brandon Eiler, a young man from Seattle with a taste in progressive rock very similar to my own. This is one of the few individuals who is constantly showing me bands I never knew existed.

Some of his favorite bands are Counterparts, Dance Gavin Dance, Eidola, and Periphery. He expressed a lot of interest in music journalism and we recently decided to bring him onto the Teal Cheese team as an intern. His goal is to eventually work as a tour manager or tour as a musician. We’re excited to see what he’ll bring to the table.

Here’s a playlist he created so you can get a feel for his taste. Enjoy and stay tuned for more from Brandon.
