Bright Eyes are the Omaha, Nebraska-based band led by lauded songwriter Conor Oberst. Recording from the age of 14, Oberst first reached national, and then international, attention with the release of 2000's Fevers and Mirrors, recorded when he was just 19 years old. The next 11 years saw the band's output receive widespread critical acclaim, building a huge and dedicated fan following. Between 1998 and 2011 they released nine albums on the Omaha-based independent label Saddle Creek.
Bright Eyes are Conor Oberst, Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott.
