Eric Stuart Band Curiosity
I was truly blessed with a great gift when I acquired the songs from this album that has been out of print for over 10 years! I fully expected that, being his very first album, Eric’s voice and lyrics might be less polished than in his other albums—I’ve never been so happy to be so completely wrong! The only noticeable difference is the lack of electric guitars and some other instrumental flourishes, but these songs still have everything that I have come to know and love about the [L]Eric Stuart band (ESB)[L]. Eric’s voice has the same richness, sincerity, and emotion that can range from charming innocence to bold (very bold!) sedu
Eric Stuart Band Picture Perfect World
The six songs in this EP are among the most powerful songs in
the Eric Stuart Band repertoire to date. In the first song, he sings, “Don’t paint me in a corner,” and this sets the mood for the whole CD. You can hear it in his intelligent lyrics and inexhaustible voice—he is “like a bull in a china shop” and nothing is going to hold him back! My favorite lines from this album are in “A Thousand Years Of Wisdom”: “I’ve been around, but it’s got me nowhere. The more I learn, the less I know.” All throughout, he continues to hit you with his powerful voice and
Eric Stuart Band Bombshellshocked
The music of ESB (Eric Stuart Band) is a genre of its own, which makes it a challenge to describe. If you imagine a triangle between the gravelly emotion of Bruce Springsteen, the easy charm of Buddy Holly, and the suave richness of Elvis Presley; then I'd say most ESB songs would fit somewhere within that triangle. Overall, Bombshellshocked is the least country-sounding of their 3 in-print albums, though it still has its presence. What is most striking about these songs are their complex and powerful emotions and original points of view. There is never a dull moment, and nothing is ever cliché. Sad Day for Love isn't so much a son
Eric Stuart Band Blue, Dressed In Black
Of the 3 ESB (Eric Stuart Band) albums I own, this is my favorite. It exemplifies the variety of styles that the band can achieve--all with the trademark ESB commitment to quality and excellence in every line. This album has it all: from their most rock type song without any drawl (Staring You in the Face) to their most western type gun ballad (God's Roof); from their most beautiful heartbreak song (Corner Booth Chronicles) to their best party song (Raise a Little Hell); and from their most cleverly crafted lyrics (Lost Innocence) to their best use of instrumentation (Heaven in a Cadillac). More than in any other album, voice actor /voic
Eric Stuart Band In the County of Kings
Eric coins the term "concrete country" to describe his music, which defies classification. Most of his songs have an obvious classical country sound with varying degrees of that old time rock'n'roll. The result is fresh and unique, with something for everyone. But it isn't the genre that grips you--it's the attention to detail like you've never heard before. Each song is stacked with layer upon layer of quality, quality, quality. The first thing that strikes you is Eric's voice. As an accomplished voice actor, Eric can deliver a top-notch musical performance with an added emotion specific to each song. In The Las
