Loss of Eden News
New live acoustic up on Youtube featuring Loss of Eden!
This time, instead of being naked, we’re trapped in a little TV!
Yup, we live adventurous lives.
ps -It’s a Chinese version of one of our songs
So, CJ at Flamethrower Magazine just posted this fantastic interview of us (you know, Loss of Eden) – with probably the most igniting and thoughtful interview questions ever. Find out things you never knew!…Like how we came up with the idea of doing naked Youtube cover songs and why we write more on our blog than just some upcoming tour dates or other self-aggrandizing stuff like that. Check it out at:
And be prepared for a pop quiz on the assigned material. 😉
Just singing a couple of songs in Union Square tomorrow afternoon. I’ll be doing a Chinese song and a Loss of Eden song. The event is called Passport 2 Taiwan and is a part of Taiwanese American Heritage Week in NYC, and Asian Pacific Heritage month. You can find out more at the event’s website or at the facebook event page:
Or just show up! I’m going to be doing one song at 2:25, and one at 3:20, according to the schedule, which appears to be very precise. Would love to see you there!
Look what a little internet searching turned up: This great review of our EP from Indie Rock Magazine!
LOSS OF EDEN Pure sadness lingers in New York City. Loss Of Eden, is an unsigned folk rock/pop band that is heavily influenced by The Carpenters and folk legend Joan Baez. This is true with the “gut wrenching” track “Worlds Away” released on January 1, 2009. A heartbreaking tale about a couple on the verge of a breakup. A woman wants her boyfriend to communicate with her. However, her boyfriend remains distant. This track features soulful vocals and light rock guitar riffs. These features add to the mellow nature of the song. Loss Of Eden’s style of folk rock and pop is light and refreshing! Leslie Snyder

It’s been a pretty big week for uneasiness here in the good ol’ U.S. of A. What with Earth Day reminding us how screwed up we are – perhaps beyond repair, and twenty some people with rifles attempting to defend the Constitution, and Mercury in retrograde (how about all those missed connections with the volcanic ash across the pond?)…
It all kind of leaves us asking ourselves what Portishead asked in the 1990’s:
“How can it feel this wrong?”
Well, I ask myself that all the time.
But in honor of the occasion, we give you Loss of Eden Uncovered 003, where we perform what is really a pretty serious song…but still naked.
Please enjoy Loss of Eden’s cover of Portishead’s “Roads” with a bottle of responsibly organic wine to drown your sorrows, and be sure to recycle the bottle afterward. Stay mellow…ish. No rifle required.
To quote the always apropos Britney Spears, “They want more? Well I’ll give them more!”
Yes, yes: it’s episode 002 of Loss of Eden’s new series, “Uncovered” – where we bring you more music, less clothing.
This time we’ve got more music, more outtakes, more of me doing goofy things like trying to pull off David’s pants while keeping my hair extensions in place so as not to cause a wardrobe malfunction…
And as always, less clothing!
At Loss of Eden, we’re fans of anyone who’s ready to take on the big subjects: the Evil Federal Reserve, how to manifest your way out of a nasty 2012 situation, and probably the trickiest thing of all: knowing yourSelf. You know, the usual daily quandaries…at least they are to us, but then I guess we’re sort of Beyond the Ordinary, huh?
In any case, Loss of Eden has much love for the folks at beyondtheordinary.net and is really pleased to be among the featured independent music artists on their website, which has information and broadcasts on a wide range of subjects including science, ancient wisdom, sustainability, art, music, and much more. Here’s a link:
After days of planning and preparation…the fastening of tapestries to the wall, the positioning of the Virgin of Guadalupe and The Coming Insurrection on the mantelpiece, the crafting of crotch-leaves and the sewing of hair extensions…
We have finally filmed our great masterpiece:
Loss of Eden Uncovered
(where we bring you more music, less clothing)
There’s no turning back now. Gaga cover + nakedness + The Coming Insurrection is sure to be a recipe for Youtube infamy to last across the Ages!
(by Ages we mean minutes in this, the Aeon of Twitter-heads. It’s sort of like converting back from cat years.)
With the wind in our hair and the Duraflame log warming our butt-cheeks, we are poised and destined to become the Charlemagnes of the internet!
Or just continue to labor in obscurity. You decide:
Loss of Eden’s “Here’s Your Revolution” was chosen for emerging artist bumper music on Coast to Coast AM! Our song was played on the February 7th show, which was about texts that were Banned from the Bible…pretty cool topic to match us with, when you consider that our band name is Loss of Eden.

Last Friday, I had the chance to perform a couple of Loss of Eden songs – including one in a Chinese version that I’ve written – for a wonderful event to help raise money for victims of the recent typhoon in Taiwan. This was a particularly meaningful show for me because I spent several years living in Taiwan, and I have many good memories and friends there. Thanks to all the great people who packed the room last Friday and made it such a wonderful crowd to perform for, and of course for your contributions to this important cause. Also, thanks to AsianInNY.com for putting together such a great event. Here’s some coverage (in Mandarin):
