Founded by life-long friends Ryan Kordich and David Yun, the name Eureka Sound takes on the meaning of “Sounds of Enlightenment”. With goals to spread Truth and Conscious Living, the group strives to bring a message of Realization and Understanding into their music.
Eureka's music attempts to illuminate minds that have been lead astray by blind leaders, leaders who have neglected the solemn matters of the world: justice, mercy, and faithfulness. Liberation from the golden pillars/false idols begins with sound; for those who are blind cannot see, but they can listen.
