West Coast Pop Duo …

“Eye To Eye” is the duo comprising of Julian Marshall, keyboard player coming from UK, and Deborah Berg, female vocalist coming from Seattle,USA. Julian Marshall had done another duo with female singer, “Marshall Hain” in late 70’s, which released the album “Free Ride” in UK (same album released in USA was titled as “Dancing In The City”.

The reason why this unknown pop duo “Eye To Eye” was remarked was, as you guess, the works produced by Gary Katz known for his producing works with Steely Dan. It is said that “Eye To Eye” started its duo activity in 1979 by releasing their single record “Am I Normal ?” c/w “Tonight Insomnia” under Automatic Records UK.

In 1982, they released 1st album “Eye To Eye” produced by Gary Katz and first single “Nice Girls” hit Billboard Top 40. Only one year later, they released their 2nd album “Shakespeare Stole My Baby” including the Billboard Top 100 single hit tune “Lucky”. If I explain to their music style, “Eye To Eye” was “pop heavily influenced from Steely Dan.”
