The C.R. Ecker Band

Charlie Ecker, a native of Clinton, New York, who moved to Los Angeles in 1984, has been interested in music ever since first banging on the 88s at the age of ten, foresaking his piano teacher to figure out how to play on his own, by ear, songs made popular by performers ranging from Chuck Berry to the Rolling Stones. He was a member of a garage band while in college playing keyboards but life took him in a different direction during the Vietnam War assigned to Seoul, Korea in the military information branch. Charlie. who wrote words and music for all but one song on this compilation, hopes you will listen to and like some of the best of the songs he and his studio group, The C.R. Ecker Band, produced from 1985 to 1991, presented for the first time here. To help other struggling songwriters during that time period, Charlie served as a PR advisor for five years with what was then the Los Angeles Songwriters Showcase, receiving its Service Excellence Award for his effort. For nearly ten years now, he has volunteered as a Division staff officer and two-term Flotilla Commander in the U.S. Coast Guard Auxliary, a CG support organization he joined after 9-11.
