Eric Lives Here Bio
Fronted by lead singer/songwriter Mike Thiel, Eric Lives Here is a solo project gone mad.
Originally corralling six members to perform and record an acoustic-driven EP ("Misplaced Mistakes") in 2006, Thiel accidentally launched Eric Lives Here, a band that performed across their home region of the Midwest for the next two years. However, the band was never prepared to continue as a group and after a three-year hiatus, Thiel officially relaunched the band -- on purpose this time -- by himself.
The result was LP "The Night is Young," which Thiel co-penned in Los Angeles the summer of 2011. It was a revelation for ELH as the album yielded the outfit's first commercial hit "Night is Young," which broke radio waves for the first time on KISS FM and became the first song inducted into the K107.1 Hall of Fame.
It quickly reestablished the act as radio rockers, garnering favorable airplay with the next two releases, but as creative leaders, Eric Lives Here took another musical turn in 2016. That's when ELH's single "MVP" - an electronic stadium rock anthem - started appearing in professional sports arenas and earning features on FOX Sports, ESPN and more.
?Releasing tracks influenced by rock, country, blues, pop and hip-hop, Eric Lives Here's near future lies in creating more sports-fueled electronic mixes, continuing to be a pioneer in the post-genre generation.
