Glenn Eric - Blanket Of Stars CD

3 editorial reviews for Glenn's new album!
“Glenn Eric is one of those quirky singer-songwriters whose music can fit in several different genres from folk to alt rock to Americana, and manage to push the envelope in all of them. A pinch of Bob Dylan, a dash of Leonard Cohen, maybe a breath of Chris Isaak, the rich timbre of Glenn’s voice electrifies even the mellower tracks here. The gritty heartland rock of the title track is juxtaposed wonderfully by the devilishly satirical ballad “Baby I Need Your Company” and beautifully moody “The Moon.” “Gulls Cry” sounds like Jimmy Buffet decided to write a song after going to a Cramps concert, and man does that bizarre wedlock ever work. This is thinking man’s music without being pompous, sometimes subtly humorous and often soul-bearing contemplative. The instrumental backdrop also is noteworthy for the talent and energy involved in its inception, and features several members of Tift Merritt’s band and lively production by My Morning Jacket’s sound man Ryan Pickett. Glenn is also an author, but for those of you who prefer to check out the musical portion of his artistic abilities, “Blanket of Stars” is definitely a great place to start. – Music Morsels Reviews, June 17, 2013

“Glenn Eric has created a nearly perfect album in Blanket of Stars…Eric has filled his disc with intelligent lyrics, spot-on musicianship and an overall professional feel. One of this album’s best songs is titled “The Moon.” It’s a song about how we all need goals. More accurately, though, it’s about how we really need sincere dreams. The moon, for instance, is far away—quite a way out of our reach. His lyric suggests we all need “something up there, like the moon” to reach for. If we become self-satisfied with life, without any challenges, life becomes dull and routine, so we all need our version of the moon, something to go for, in our lives.“Lonely World” has one of the best two opening lines I’ve ever heard in a song. It begins with Eric signing, “I got tired of hanging on/You got tired of letting go.” How perfect is that? Well, it describes imperfection, in that two people are going two polar opposite directions. However, Eric used word economy to sum up this sad situation precisely. One person really wanted to make things work, while the other one had grown weary keeping it together… the opening words are so good, it makes “Lonely World” one of the very best songs on a…very smart album…It would be interesting to hear these songs performed by another vocalist. The result and Glenn Eric’s future as a songwriter could be very bright”. – Dan MacIntosh, Music Reviewer

…Deliver[s] a likable dose of roots rock, adult alternative, rock & roll and Americana. –
