[Ebb] blend together a multitude of styles for an intoxicating effect.
-PROG Magazine (Issue 102)
[Ebb] gave me goosebumps, and I can tell you as a hardened, possibly even jaded live music listener it takes something very special to elicit that reaction from me.

'...[a] fresh and modern approach to a progressive form of music that should be applauded...'
‘Death And The Maiden’ packs more wonder into six tracks than
a lot of bands do in an entire career..'.
'Death & The Maiden' is centred around the theme of divulging through an array of diverse emotions, and these are brought to life through mesmerising, poignant lyrics, which in turn are transmitted via a threefold of vivid and often heated vocal performances.'

With a melting pot of influences that flowed and evolved into modern prog rock... a sound forged during years of touring in various line-ups and expressed through top notch musicianship... Ebb are a genre defying group of five women and one guy with a mission to 'Bring Prog to the People!'.
The band boldly bring in riveting instrumental soundscapes, spoken word poetry and iconic space whispers to accompany the onslaught of skilled drums, searing keyboards, soulful guitar; all overlayed by Erin's powerful vocals and deeply personal lyrics.
Not to be missed live, Ebb are an emotional gig experience that will lift you out of your daily life and blast you into the stratosphere. If you have never had the classic 'real gig' experience of a deep heartfelt, moving panorama of sound and meaning then it is time to move away from the shallows of pop music and towards the deep currents that Ebb.
Coming from very different social and political backgrounds, they play a bizarre blend of music styles resulting in Prog-Rock...sort of. On top of their, at times, thunderous soundscapes are the titanic but always beguiling vocals of Erin Bennett; the Texan, award-winning singer/songwriter.
With a cross genre appeal and described variously as 'being the bastard daughter of King Crimson and Heart.' or perhaps more cheerfully, 'Prog with songs!' - EBB are open to eclectic description and new fans of all ages.
