Eric Himan’s 7th studio release, SUPPOSED UNKNOWN, brings a veteran folk-rocker to the stage and proves this award-winning singer/songwriter is no amateur to independent music.
A musical milestone on a journey 10 years in the making has lead this talented storyteller to his strongest writing ever. Not one to walk alone, Himan recruits another award-winning singer/songwriter, Namoli Brennet, to help produce this standout album and relies on the mastering talents of Chris Bellman (Ani DiFranco, Alanis Morissette, Elton John) to bring the story to life.
Longtime fans and newcomers alike will be swept away as Eric’s music flows through genres like the catchy/bluesy, Blood On Her Lips to a taste of rockabilly-folk in the rockiest track from the album, Dust. Exploring the competitiveness of the music business, Dust provides a compelling glimpse “Nothing sticks to you/now you’re moving too fast to touch/you make me feel so still like I’m collecting dust.”
In contrast, tracks like Save The Afternoon take listeners in a new and satisfying direction.The dreamy lyric, the lull of the chorus and the relativism of the song, will open deliver a new set of ears poised to discover the sounds of Eric Himan. From laying down his own piano and vocal tracks on the vulnerable ballad Left Out to the Motown vibe of You Come Around, it is clear Eric Himan finds himself where he is supposed to be.
With his signature gift for pop melodies Lonely No More, to the social commentary in You First 's lyrics, Eric delivers what only a veteran of the indie music scene can provide- a woven tapestry of genres which flow seamlessly together providing the listener with as diverse experience as the artist himself. One thing is clear. More and more music lovers will come todiscover this SUPPOSED UNKNOWN.
