Eric Val

Eric Val


“Diverse Music with a Hard Rock Edge,” or "Diverse Rock" sums up Eric Val’s music career. This hard rock solo artist comes from Williamsport, PA, that was influenced by bands like Sevendust, Shinedown, Marvin Gaye, Garth Brooks, Eric Clapton, Stone Sour and Seether. He has a classically trained voice that helps him propel his sound and style far above the rest. His writing style is as unique as his voice. 

With the release of the debut album ‘3 Year Struggle’ August 31, 2012, the world got to see a small taste of what Eric is all about. With 13 original tracks, it is available exclusively at ericvalmusic.com, along with itunes.com, amazon.com, and cdbaby.com. The album demonstrates his diversity, honesty and passion for his music. The first two singles ‘High Above You’ and ‘Pull Me Under’ showcase his pop sensibility and the rest show the diversity.

The next recording was released in September 2013 debuting the rock/pop single ‘Beauty Queen’. The song exemplifies a mixture of heavy guitars, groove drumming and smooth vocals. Another single was released, ‘If You Only Knew’, in July of 2014, and comprises a mixture of acoustic guitars, electric solos and fast paced drums. Then in 2015, came Beautiful Lie a mixture of rock, country and classical music with a smooth melody and voice. 

The sophomore album My Gift, My Curse,  released on November 18, 2019. In short, it the most diverse rock album ever, featuring 14 different musicians playing over twenty different instruments on the album. Ranging from rock and metal influence to classical and country tones. The first single Tragedy will start it off and is released. A mixture of rock, country and classical music with haunting lyrics and melody. It is dedicated to the ones we've lost, the ones left behind and the affect it has on us. Inspired by the people we've lost due to suicide and drug overdoses.

All the proceeds from the song will be donated to the Recovery Awareness Connection, an organization dedicated to recovery of those with drug abuse and mental illness. Two other singles have been released as well groove metal melodic My Own Hell and jazz rock fusion The Past. Along with the singles Slow Decline an R&B, Rock and classical piece and hard rock tribal Faded Memory. 

As for what's next? On Monday, April 13, 2020, Granddad's Lessons, a country-rock single mixed with a touch of classical, will be released. Featuring killer country music musicians Roy Peterman (Peddle Steel) and Richard Rupert (Fiddle and Mandolin) with a touch of diverse rock. Then comes the Rock Country with touch of Classical tune Saying Goodbye, coming out May 18, 2020. Always working, always creating, there will be more.

Whale

Rebecka Reinhard

Crowds & Power Recordings

Released: Single: Out now/EP: 27 July 2020
Whale - Rebecka Reinhard

We say

Originally from Stockholm, but now residing in the UK, singer-songwriter Rebecka Reinhard delivers an absolute gem in this gorgeously subversive and bittersweet indie-rock offering. Its blend of dreamy shoegaze textures, killer melodies and punchy vocals hides a melancholic side, lyrically, as the track speaks about our fractured socio-political climate and current isolated situation. Released earlier this week and recorded with producer Anders Kallmark for his Camden Town-based label Crowds & Power Recordings, Whale ticks all the right boxes for alt-rock and sad playlists, as well as being ripe for sync opportunities for a TV drama series. Clash, Nothing But Hope and Passion and When The Horn Blows are all early fans but expect to see more come on board over the next week for this cool tune.

Limited edition 7" vinyl is sold out, but limited edition purple cassettes are still available here! bullythemusic.bandcamp.com

Side A: About a Girl (Nirvana)
Side B: Turn to Hate (Orville Peck)

Normally during this time I'd be running around trying to promote the upcoming record and rehearsing to get ready to tour again but given the circumstances I'm trying to work with what I can do at home alone. I picked a couple sub pop songs to cover to release something in the meantime. I played everything on these songs (for better or worse haha) and tracked them in my living room, then sent them over to Jeremy Ferguson to mix. Gotta do what ya gotta to spice it up sometimes. Anywho more soon!!

PRIMA PASSION



All my songs are cries of love inspired by all the feelings of life.
"Balade sur le Nil" is a dream about everlasting love.

"Saint Germain des Prés" related a love story in the typical neighbourhood of Saint Germain des Prés with its vibrant 1950's night life like in the famous "Caveau de la Huchette".

"Viens" is sensual and erotic song that I wrote for all women who want to give and receive love.
"J'ai Couru la Campagne" is a bucolic song that I wrote for children. I included it in a recent video dedicated to them in order they can imagne run and sing in the countryside during this confined COVID-19 period. This video could be finded on all social networks. 

I am songwriter and singer, and made my first song at the age of 12. I am a registred member of the French SACEM.  

Charles TRENET sponsored my songs and encouraged me.

Michel LEGRAND also encouraged me when I started 
I participate to the Music Festival with Jack LANG who he is fond of my songs, specially the song "Les Jardins d'El Biar".

I received an early musical education til the age of 5 when my mother took me to the Opera. 
My favorite instrument is piano.

I am also actress, scriptwriter and writer for theater. Some of my theater drames were played by troups of young student.

Hi everybody, 

I've been spending more time than ever with my guitar and a pen and paper, just staring out the window, thinking about music. I'm hoping that all of you have something you enjoy doing alone, inside.. maybe you've reawakened your love of Play-Doh, some of you are probably turning into yoga pretzels, whatever the pleasure, I hope it finds you. 
Last January, my band got together and recorded a covers EP. I took on some of my favorite moody tunes; Nick Lowe's "Blue on Blue" was released this week. I became obsessed with that song in particular when I was touring with Nick Lowe last fall. As soon as I heard the first guitar strum I would creep from my dark place backstage and get as close as possible to bask in the magic of that song. It put a spell on me. I needed to figure out why... 
Recording these cover songs has been a really interesting experience, to step into these great songs and reckon with the magic that's locked inside. To try and access it and interpret it. 

We covered some really iconic American classics, which is why I chose to name the EP My Favorite Mistakes (emphasis on mistakes), because only time will tell if we reawakened these songs or simply botched them up.

My Favorite Mistakes is now available to pre-order here. The EP will be available digitally on May 29.

With love,
Esther
