Wide Eyes was established in 2004 by emcee Filth Phantom and producer Dimitry Killstorm. The two were later joined by emcee Sean Anonymous in 2005, and Dj Name in 2008. With the release of their first full-length album Hands Tied, the group defined their distinctive sound of intricate, heart-felt flows over hard hitting beats, setting the bar for things to come. Wide Eyes has grown from humble beginnings, to become a staple in the Minneapolis hip-hop scene. Wide Eyes has played everywhere from house parties and record stores to sold out venues and outdoor music festivals. They continue to build their fan base throughout the Midwest, and are steadily spreading their roots throughout the country. Members of the group have performed everywhere from Los Angeles to New York and from Seattle to Austin. Wide Eyes has had the fortune to share the stage with acts such as: Juice, One Be Lo, Blueprint, Qwel, I Self Devine, and more.
