Bright Eyes started as a side project of Conor Oberst's while he was the frontman for the indie rock outfit Commander Venus, which featured Tim Kasher who later went on to form the band Cursive. While Oberst's tendencies towards folk rock arrangements and activist lyrics backed up by considerable songwriting skill have garnered him many comparisons to Bob Dylan, his dark tone and singing style are reminisant of Leonard Cohen and Simon Joyner.
In 2000, Bright Eyes released Fevers and Mirrors, a demonstration of the immense improvement in production quality and musical vision of the band. New instruments such as flute, piano, and accordion were introduced into the song arrangements. In 2002 came Lifted or The Story Is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground. The difference in sound from previous albums was immediate. Bright Eyes became one of the year's most celebrated "new" artists - despite having been recording under that moniker for a few years. They received national attention, including in several notable pieces in the New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Time Magazine, Rolling Stone, Blender and Spin, many of which proclaimed Conor Oberst to be a significant new artist. The album sold over 100,000 copies in the first six months after its release, a breakthrough for the label and for all of the band's peers at that time.
During the 2004 election season, Bright Eyes toured with Bruce Springsteen and REM on the MoveOn.org "Vote for Change" tour, further pushing him into the public eye. Oberst sang numerous duets with the likes of Springsteen and Neil Young.
Bright Eyes released the studio album entitled Cassadaga via Saddle Creek in early 2007. Popular tracks for the album include "Four Winds", "Soul Singer in a Session Band" and "Hot Knives".
