ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A little Luck and Playfulness mixed with Brilliance and Passion. A joke on your best friend right before he or she hits rock bottom and another joke right after to cheer that same friend back up. A punch against the wall, a kiss good night, a high five, and a wave goodbye. From this real life roller coaster erupts Eric Lives Here, a Midwestern band oozing the sensibility only college kids can shelter.

Before solidifying a six person line-up in the beginning of 2006, ELH began with just two friends: one with nothing but lyrics and a knack for melodies, and one with nothing but an acoustic guitar and a head full of licks. After calling upon the help of two other guitar-obsessed friends, a piano man, and a red headed drummer, the full band, known today as Eric Lives Here, began their musical journey.

Sensing something special, ELH wasted no time getting into the studio to record their debut EP “Misplaced Mistakes.” Recorded in their home state of Wisconsin (to four members) as well as mixed and mastered at Milwaukee’s DV Productions (Live, Violent Femmes), the band has created a mix of emotions relayed through song. Fans are delighted to hear the all-electric live performance, which kicks the music up a notch from the first four songs of the acoustic-esque EP.

ELH’s sound has been likened to the Goo Goo Dolls, around the time of their second major album. This comparison mainly raised because of the “hard edge” and “soft edge” that ELH covertly lays on their listeners.

The Midwest natives (Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota) have dug deep inside themselves to invent “Misplaced Mistakes,” modifying a 90s rock style that fell out the window with Mr. Jones over a decade ago.**

I love these guys!
I love this CD, every single track is worth listening to. I had only heard 1 or 2 songs prior to purchasing it and was a bit skeptical that I would like the entire CD but I do. The first day I had it I listened to it over and over again. The only thing negative I have to say is that there could have been more songs, I couldn't get enough!

Derrick

Wow!
I just heard of these guys via myspace and am mega impressed. I don't see this cd coming out of my player for a long time. Love the sound, pretty raw but hooky w/ good lyrics. More bands like this please!

Katie Ranger

So Cool!
OMG! I saw these guys back back in November or December when they opened for Quietdrive in Green Bay and it was such a good show. They were only on for like 30 minutes but they had the whole crowd sucked in. Just found this link from their myspace and had to write a review. I'm in love with the CD. Keep making music boys! :-)

Solid
Solid CD with great melody. Sounds like a great collection of soft Incubus songs. If you like Incubus or Working Title, this group is for you...even though I never knew the singer for this band could sound as good as he does on this album?!?!

John Jones


I saw these guys a few months ago in concert and was very impressed. I couldn't help but buy a CD and am very glad that I made that purchase. All songs are unique, nothing really sounds the same and they are all well written musically and lyrically. Catchy tunes and very talented musicians. I heard a rumor that they will be working on the full CD soon and am very excited for the release of the album.
