ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On December 29, 1996, singer-songwriter Eric Endres' friend, Tony, died of drug-related causes. Eric went to Tony's wake high on the drug that put Tony in the casket, and realizing he was on the same path and unable to stop. Speaking of the song he wrote about that ("Tony"), Endres says, "Hearing it today, it sounds like a lot of justification. Oh, too bad, man... You couldn't control it. I'll be okay, though. The last line of the bridge - "I know I'm never far" - was the only real moment of self-awareness. It was a turning point to really feel that."

Thus begins Six Feet Over, a powerful album chronicling Endres' own heroin addiction, brushes with death, and subsequent recovery, and all of the obsession, avoidance and rationalization along the way. Endres got clean on April 17, 1997, and this album includes several songs written shortly before and after that time, as well as a touching follow-up about life 20 years later ("Gravy").


Six Feet Over shows off a variety of memorable songs and musical styles, including the powerful alt-rock ballad "Tony," the droning progressive pulse of "Dark Blue Heron," the gorgeous and bluesy "Gone," the quirky and catchy "Hole" and "Blah Blah Blah Blah," the gospel rock flavored "More Will Be Revealed," and the folky Jack Johnson meets Kenny Loggins feel of "Gravy." Connecting the album throughout is Endres' unique and compelling voice and accomplished guitar work, as well as the chops of guest musicians Seth Horan, Eric Cymerman, Ben Macy, and Brian Williams.
