Album Notes
Eric and his family moved to eastern Ukraine during the post-Soviet depression in 1995. In order to cope with the transition and to find beauty in the utilitarian coal mining city in which he found himself, he began writing poetry and songs. Having developed this gift of expression, Eric's songs are now written on a variety of topics. Sometimes whimsical and sometimes poignant, his music is always uplifting.
As Eric and his wife studied the Russian and Ukrainian cultures, they realized that every musical group or artist had a song about Mama in their repertoire. They also observed a profound regard for both music and humor in these cultures. So after 17 years of familiarizing themselves with the Slavic peoples, Tesha (Тёща) is the first song Eric wrote in the heart language of the people of eastern Ukraine. Tesha (Тёща) is a song about that one person about whom no one ever seems to write songs... their mother-in-law.
