Revisiting their early days on the road when many of their signature tracks were created, EYB compiled a playlist titled “Songs From the Van” for Billboard and “features both superstar rockers (Queen) and introspective singer-songwriters (Marc Broussard), all of whom put an emphasis on harmonies and instrumentals the way Eli Young Band does.” Collectively sharing the theme, EYB recalls, “Although these are all songs and artists that have influenced our music, these more specifically capture a moment in time for us when it was just the four of us – in a van – taking on the world one small stage at a time.” Listen to EYB’s picks here.
Formed at the University of North Texas, EYB’s journey features #1 hits PLATINUM “Drunk Last Night,” 2X PLATINUM “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” and 3X PLATINUM “Crazy Girl.” Globally, they have racked up over 2.8 billion in streams. Continuing to punch-up their live appearances, EYB has headlining and festival shows slated through the summer.
