As an independent singer/songwriter and producer, Erik Broms has been bending the ears of his family, friends, and fans for years. So, it was no surprise when Hollywood came knocking on his door and his music started turning up in the CBS hit drama “Cold Case” and washing ashore alongside Jack Johnson and Godsmack in surf films like “The Union Blue Project” directed by renowned surf cinematographer/director Don King (“The Descendants,” “Blue Crush,” “Riding Giants”). Broms' indie release “Bend Your Ear” featuring the single “Don’t Leave the Girl” makes it clear that Broms knows not only how to craft a song, but also how to make an alluring pop record.
In songs like the recently released single, "Sunshine Girl I Love You So", Broms' lush melodies, harmonic textures, and harmless mellifluousness expose his Beatles/Beach Boys influences giving his music more of the quiet prettiness of Elliott Smith, but with a jones for love and life. "M I A After The Show", his latest single release, reminiscent of Beck and Tame Impala, blends fuzzy guitars, a swaying groove, and a sonic psychedelic sensibility that is both classic and modern sounding.
