Fresh off of their 2009 HMMA nomination for “best original song in a film”, Eggshell continues to place songs in film, tv and video games. The most recent being the documentary “Raising Kate”. Kate takes a look into raising a child with autism, Whitton says “Kate is inspiring and represents how we should all be living our lives”.
Eggshell Egoz was formed in 2001, the roots are the brainchild of vocalist Dave Whitton and guitarist David Walker, two ambitious artists with a knack for colorful, literature-style song writing. After the band's early experiments with cellos, saxophones, trumpets, and congas, they found bassist Dale Vix, drummer Jay Setar, metal-based rhythm guitarists Victor Delgado and Rodney Amieva.
Billed with acts such as, Liz Phair, Gavin Rossdale (Institute), Killola, Raining Jane, Outlett, and Quincy Jones, the Egoz have played hundreds of amazing venues, festivals, and charities including Rose City Rocks, J Rockfest, NARM, Tide Fest, Charities for Cancer research, and the Rocker's for life. Their anthology of music consists of over 50 original songs with a few covers and can be heard on an abundance of radio stations, online and also in the soon to be released animated movie Trampoline.

With strong but vulnerable vocals, critics love Eggshell's fusion of sound:
"A group such as Eggshell Egoz could only have originated from California. This jumpy, infectiously giddy band marries the white funk of the Red Hot Chili Peppers with the singalong pop hooks of the Barenaked Ladies and the sun-baked lethargy of Sublime.", Carlos Redondo, World Where you live
