Easter Island
Oak House

Easter Island is fronted by Ethan Payne, a videographer and boom operator who has worked extensively in the television and film industries and Ryan Monahan (who you already know from Cindy Wilson's solo project and Monahan, Ryan's eponymous solo endeavor).The band's new recordings also feature contributions from a number of respected Georgia musicians including Ethan's brother Asher Payne, Nathan Thompson, John Swint (currently of Yip Deceiver, formerly of Modern Skirts) on drums and percussion, and Slade Adams (formerly of Oak House and who has recorded with Cindy Wilson) and David Van Wyk (Bill Mallonee and the Vigilantes of Love, Jim White) on strings.

The band has been working in secret quarters over the past three years. Although the band announced their breakup in 2014, Monahan and Payne began writing and recording new material only weeks later. Engineered and produced by Monahan, the band has traveled as far as Japan to work on the new songs and to film material for upcoming music videos, which should be released in early summer. The songs also received additional engineering, mixing, and mastering from Mike Albanese (who performs with Maserati, Cinemechanica, and Bit Brigade) at Espresso Machine Recording in Athens.

Between 2010 and 2014, Easter Island performed at a number of festivals such as SXSW in Austin and CMJ in New York City. The band also received favorable press from Paste Magazine on a number of occasions, PopMatters, The Knife Fight and several other national publications. The song "Proud" from 2012's Frightened was licensed for the ABC series "Off the Map" and other songs from the band's catalog have been featured on other nationally broadcast television shows.
