EBX was born when Kevin Wesley Williams and Erin Accomando began working together at The Sound Shop Studio in Macomb, Michigan in January of 2015. They set out to create the sound of a new pop/rock project, ELSIE BINX. They and Aaron Golematis produced a 7-song album that would eventually bring together the group of musicians who call themselves ELSIE BINX – EBX today.
Throughout the recording process of their first album, ‘Smile and a Bullet’, old loved ones and new friends were added into the mix. At that time, Phil Steuer was an intern at Sound Shop and began putting guitar tracks onto the 7 original songs. And then, when they were in need of a drummer, Phil recommended long-time friend and bandmate, Dylan McCarty, son of Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer, Jim McCarty. And then logically, when the need for a bassist arose, Dylan brought in long-time buddy and bandmate, Jason Quartuccio.
When they released their first album in October of 2015, they began playing out in public as a 5-piece band, including one background vocalist. A few months into the endeavor, they made the decision to search out a second guitar player. As luck would have it, one of Phil and Dylan’s best and oldest friends would become available at the perfect moment in time. They welcomed in Jon Neville as the fifth member of ELSIE BINX in March of 2016.
For the remainder of 2016, they worked diligently to write an entirely new rock album and have it perfected before recording it in the Fall of 2016. They successfully released their full-length, 12-song sophomore album, ‘That’s What She Said’, in April of 2017.
