NOTES
The long shadow of the British Invasion, Motown, the twang of Americana, the sunny ’70s of Laurel Canyon and the pangs of Irish melancholy are all detectable in King Mixer music, but these seemingly incongruent additives are unified by a single songwriter. It’s a melting pot which owes a lot to the cultural contrast in the combined vinyl collections of his parents (African-American father, Polish-Irish mother) and an infant's discovery of such music. Eric’s early awareness of Nat ‘King’ Cole, Charlie Parker, The Monkees, Burt Bacharach, The Jackson 5 – and an everlasting fascination with The Beatles – eventually gave birth to original songs that tapped the veins of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, had the hooks of local power pop heroes Off Broadway, and possessed the uncompromising passion of early Bruce Springsteen or U2, as filtered through the inherent Midwestern irony of Cheap Trick and The Replacements.
