ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Eric Douglas is an Arizona singer/songwriter who combines contemporary folk, classic rock, and Texas country to tell stories of people finding their place in the world...for better or worse.

Eric paints an American landscape, with songs from the Southwestern desert, the Great Plains, and the open road.

He been performing for more than 20 years, combining poignant storytelling with solid guitar, harmonica, and piano. His performances are engaging and intimate, as he expertly balances serious songs with a dry humor.

You’ll hear shades of Dylan and Springsteen, but the songs are distinctively original, and unmistakably Americana.

Eric cut his teeth in New York City bars and coffeehouses in the late 90s, and has lived in Arizona since 2002, where he regularly performs at the major folk festivals around the state, as well as coffeehouses in the Phoenix area.

"About Time" is Eric's fourth album, and his first studio album since 2007's "Building and Wrecking". There is no title track - the CD's title references the passage of time (or not) in each of the songs.

"Old 66" tells the story of historic Route 66, now replaced by highways, leaving some small towns - and people - to fend for themselves. The next few songs take you on a trip around the country, to Detroit and Nevada, before our protagonist finds his way home, even though he struggles to make it "The Last 90 Miles". But the effort is rewarded - "Twenty Winters" is about a couple that can make it through the tough times only to become stronger with each passing year.

The album's signature track may be "When I Was Superman". Every parent knows this story, watching their children grow and learn about the world around them, even though it means you aren't their whole world anymore.

Finally, "Anchor" takes the listener out to sea for a final homecoming. Eric's teen daughters perform viola and saxophone, and help to end the journey on a hopeful, satisfying note.

Eric enlisted the help of award-winning musicians in the Phoenix area for guitar solos and harmony vocals, and performed all other parts, including guitar, harmonica, and piano. The online album includes a special bonus version of "When I Was Superman", featuring an additional guitar and trumpet solo.
