Johnny Yong Bosch
Johnny Yong Bosch is a popular actor, voice actor, martial artist, and musician. Johnny is best known for portraying Adam Park in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and being the English voice of Vash the Stampede in Trigun. Johnny is also known as the voice of Ichigo Kurosaki in Bleach, Lelouch Lamperouge in Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, Itsuki Koizumi in The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Kiba in Wolf's Rain, Renton Thurston in Eureka Seven, Emil Castagnier in Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World, Shotaro Kaneda in Akira, and Nero in Devil May Cry 4.

Eyeshine is a four piece, "edge rock" band originating in West Hills, California. The band consists of Johnny Yong Bosch, Maurice Salmin, Eddie Colmenares and Tori Dozier. They are currently one of the most promising unsigned bands coming out of California playing shows all over the United States.

The origins of Eyeshine date back almost a decade when Bosch and Maurice Salmin began playing together in a church band. Eventually deciding to take a shot at writing and performing their own music, the band went through many incarnations before deciding on the name Eyeshine. Their full length debut album Red Stripes/White Lights was released in early spring of 2008. My Paper Kingdom was released on June 5, 2009. In addition to My Paper Kingdom, Eyeshine will be releasing an all acoustic album entitled Afterglow and recently released Tone of Echoes in late 2010.

Bosch got the name "Eyeshine" from an episode of the Crocodile Hunter. Steve Irwin was rescuing crocodiles in the darkness and kept repeating that he could spot them by their 'eyeshine' from his lantern.
