Eric Meany relocated to Washington, D.C., in the summer of 2001. Prior to that he had been active in the New York City music scene for over 10 years. The early days saw him blasting out cover tunes as vocalist/keyboardist/rhythm guitarist for the bar band Radio Piranha.
In 1994, he hooked up with singer/songwriter Mychael LaMorte to craft some exquisite pop-rock in the unfortunately short-lived quartet Love Song Fools. In 1996, he brought his keyboard stylings to the already established Primrose Hill. From that group Eric, along with Gary Thomas and Eric Silver, emerged in 1998 to establish the core of the Frank Heavens ensemble. Also in the mid-90's, Eric began his association with singer/songwriter Jessica McLaren. Eric played piano for her throughout the remainder of the decade, as well as co-producing and recording her album "Leaving The Island." Along the way, Eric occasionally provided keyboard work for a variety of acts, including Mini-King, The Kris, The Ho-Ho's, and Individual Fruit Pie. He was the musical director and keyboard player for the Roxxmore Productions presentation of "Fire And Ice: A Tribute To Pat Benatar" staged in New York City in October of 2000.
In 1999, Eric began performing as a solo act. Armed only with an acoustic guitar, he sang his original songs to anyone who would listen (and many who wouldn't). Throughout the year 2000 he was hard at work recording these songs, and in January of 2001 his CD "Everything I Said" was released. Eric was responsible for all of the noises made on the record, which included lead and backing vocals, acoustic and electric guitar, bass, keyboards, and percussion.
Fall of 2001 saw Eric continuing to push the album with live shows throughout the northeastern United States while working on new material for his next album. As of Spring 2002, he is in the midst of recording a new album, which will hopefully be released later this year.
