Open Up Your Eyes is the first EP of the fresh dynamic singer-songwriters duo ‘The Okies’. A two piece band armed with only 2 keyboards, professional recording software, a semi-professional studio microphone and some spare time.

This 4 song EP is the project of two Dutch individuals with a big passion for music and song-writing. It’s a fresh start, a new look on something done since the dawn of mankind: creating music and telling stories.

4 unique songs, each one with its own style, theme and instrumental load-out. For only 5 euro’s. And all the profit will go to the ‘Dutch Royal Seeing Eye Dog Foundation’ (KNGF). That’s right, we won’t earn even one single penny.


Because our band mascot ‘Okie’ is the seeing eye dog of Lucas. Okie has provided Lucas with a lot of help (and love) so we wanted to give some back ;)
