This modern rock power trio is known as ERWIN. These musicians encompass great talent, along with incredible creativity. The band is Tony B. (vocals, guitar), Randy (bass), and Graham (drums). ERWIN's music can be described as a mix of catchy pop and modern melodic rock. With heavy guitar distortions and undeniable melodies, their music is a combination of cadence and creative lyrics that is displayed in their live performances and captured on their album OUTOFREACH. Every so often a band comes around with a certain uniqueness that grabs you from the opening song, and then gets better with each listen. Every song represents a wealth of rock and roll musical styles. The fascination with this new breed of modern rock musician is their instinctive ability to connect many genres of music, thereby shaping and molding it into something all of their own making; a familiar sound never heard before. The album OUTOFREACH captures ERWIN's diversity, with guitar riffs attacked from every angle, addictive bass lines, thundering beats, and compelling changes. There is never a break, mistake, or misplaced note. Perfection is the word and music of this nature grows inside itself, and it will grow on you with each spin.
OUTOFREACH is the second collaboration with Super Producer Brian Reeves. In 2003, the band created an EP with 5 songs called WE'RE NOT ERWIN, which was the blueprint for the new record. Reeves, along with his partner Keith Forsey, are responsible for some of the biggest hits of the 80's, working with multi-million selling artists such as: Billy Idol, Simple Minds, U2 and worked on the Soundtracks for the hit films Ghostbusters and Fame. Recently, Reeves produced the phenominal band Rooney and just came out of the studio with new material from Idol, which is sure to become an album full of instant classics. From the opening guitar riff in HEREAFTER, you're pulled in to the wonderful world of ERWIN. You're taken on a ride from pop perfection to waltzy ballads and not let go until the final abrupt moment that ends the hard rocking PIERCE. The riffs are infectious and the lyrics are positive and inspiring, a rarity in rock music these days. This is a collection of 12 excellent singles, but is meshed together and paced as a superb album.
