Album Notes
The songwriting of Erik Hartley is intriguingly different than most. He often expresses a type of cynical optimism at the sour end of a relationship. From this mindset he creates powerful music and complex lyricism, illustrating scornful stories that maintain a conflicting romantic atmosphere. It becomes an auditory contradiction of emotion that illustrates the confusion we can all feel. The music blends those emotions into something real and tangible that allows the listener to immerse themselves into their own perspective of each story.

You can hear the Detroit influences of Motown, blues, and funk in all of Erik's melodies despite their more traditional categorization as a rock band. And while every song has its own reflection of these genres, the essence of songwriters from the 1960's and 70's is always present in both the music and lyrics.

Erik has been developing his style for over years of experience, however he has grown in the past few to expand his sound with the addition of other gifted musicians. And through blistered hands, broken strings and battered guitars, the he now reaches an ever-growing audience to countries across the world.
