The 10 track follow-up to Eric's first record, "A Long Way From Home," couldn't come soon enough and is arriving in early 2020.
Recorded live at Prairie Sun Recording Studio to 24 track 2 inch tape with Grammy winning engineer Oz Fritz (Tom Waits, John Hammond, Primus, Bill Laswell), the full band release represents a fluid evolution and natural progression of where Eric's music is heading, but his stake in the songs has not changed a bit.
The same convictive soul of Eric's songs appear again, but where his last record highlighted a sparse reserve that shone alone in its' self-recorded home studio upbringings, 'Looking Up' comes in full fidelity with the warmth of his full band and a depth of sound rich in harmonic overtones.
Firm to its core, it features The Short Tempers with fidddle, mandolin, pedal-steel, stand-up bass and resophonic, acoustic, & electric guitar.
“"Long's vocals have a timeless timbre that sounds well-traveled, self-reflective and pure."”
“"We believed in him so we found him a spot. Pretty sure we made the right call."”
