About Us

After completely losing his dead dry hair by 17, Eric Winzenried realized at a young age that life has a way of forcing its stereotypical imprint on the soul. Since then, writing and recording music has been a way for him to forget the various bad hairstyles he attempted throughout the 90's (for instance, the infamous bald guy with pony tail look). He's had the privilege of working many exciting shitty jobs. From office supplies replenisher to food delivery specialist, from wrangler of the mentally ill to naked guy in plays, all his experiences have influenced the eclectic nature of his music. But it wasn't until he found himself divorced at 28, displaced, and sharing a tiny studio apartment with giant sized cockroaches that he finally found his voice as a singer songwriter.

Self depracating humor, sarcasm, and their not so distant cousin, anger, are a common link throughout the debut album "Hooray". Songs such as "You Can't Stay at My Apartment" which deals with the psycho uninvited house guest who never leaves and "Therapy" which tells the charming story of a crystal meth smoking ex-girlfriend are examples of Winzenried's Lyrical style. The music itself is a synthesis of different genres including hip hop,pop, rock, glam, and alternative. Ohio" and "Smarter One" best showcase this unique bled of musical styles.

After spending many numerous drunken nights at the old Hollywood bar Boardner's, Eric met his brilliant future producer and guitarist Lloyd Stuart Casson. Stuart hooked up the amazing Carl West on bass and Eric's old friend from Ohio, Paul, "fingers" Sandberg, would later join the group on keys. The incredible Sebastian sheehan climbed aboard the band last year just in time to lend his talents to their new album SWELL due out in November 2006. Their amazing chemistry as a band brings infectious excitement to the music and they highly recommend that you see them live whenever you get the chance before they implode with self-doubt. Peace.
