Every once and a while an artist comes along that reminds us of a sound and style from our musical heritage. Often that sound and style has been off of our radar for so long that we have neglected and maybe even forgotten it. Then, we encounter an artist that sings in the sound, and writes in that style, and they remind us of why we need to go back to that era and rediscover our roots!
Meet Eric Lee Brumley. Musically, Eric has deep roots in Delta Blues and Gospel Soul. Lyrically, Eric being a former addict and finding freedom from his past addictions through his faith in Jesus, is a living testament of the power of Jesus that breaks the chains that hold us back from living our best life possible. Eric wants you to know that he’s serious about the freedom he has found with every lyric he sings. His faith is not a passive faith. It is a fiery, take the bull by the horns, practical life-application kind of faith based on the words written in red in the Good Book! Vocally, Eric reminds us of Mavis Staples mixed with Keith Green. Just let that settle in for a minute!
