Album Notes
Life has a way of forcing its stereotypical imprint on the soul."Life likes to have its fun with me. When it drops its guard we're gonna wait and see." As Eric Winzenried explains in "Punchline", he knows the deck is stacked in life's favor, but as an artist he's gonna resist becoming its punk.

Stepping way beyond the trite images of a one genre artist, Eric's music is an eclectic blend of pop/rock with elements of hip hop to alternative. His debut album, "Hooray", captures the diversity of his musical influences from the humor and sarcasm of The Kinks and The Replacements to the lyrical flow of Sublime and A Tribe Called Quest as well as the unpredictability of David Bowie. The signature songs "Ohio" and "Smarter One" best showcase this unique blend of musical styles.

His debut album highlights his unique comical insights into life's absurdities. He takes situations, from the truly tragic to the simply inconvenient, and breaks them down to what's really worth crying over. In "Therapy", Eric tells the charming love story of a crystal meth smoking ex-girlfriend while in "Punchline", Eric makes light of his ex wife's painful marital infidelity by contrasting it with the even greater tragedy of the death of his sister . In the featured song, "You Can't Stay at My Apartment", he documents the sufferings we have all endured of the psycho uninvited house guest who never leaves and questions our inability to stand up for ourselves.

While Eric Winzenried's songs contain self deprecating humor, sarcasm, and their not so distant cousin, anger, they all share the same message: if you are able to laugh at the humorous fragile nature of life, you'll stop viewing yourself as a victim and take back the controls.

hip-hop power pop siezes you by the short hairs
If Beck had writer's block and was in a stealing mood, he'd lift at least 3 songs from Winzenried's Hooray: Ohio, Hollywood Drunk, and the best cut Can't Stay at My Apartment. This is hip-hop power pop that siezes you by the short hairs. Pre-hot-date psych up music.

David Winzenried

Very good and exicting to listen to.
Entertaining mix of music even though it was not as hard as I usually listen to. I have added it to my collection and will look for their new CD.

J. M. Still

Great, fresh sound, even if you're sober - I've got several favorites (OHIO, SMARTER ONE, CAN'T STAY AT MY APARTMENT, PUNCHLINE) already, and I just listened to it today! Hippin' hoppin' rappin' and rockin' - there's something on WINZENRIED for everybody!

J Gulisano

BUY THIS CD!! Finally, something worth listening to.
Hooray!! is one hell of a good album. Each track is so solid, it's hard to pick out stand outs -- but, pay attention to Therapy, Cold Day and Punchline. Eric Winzenried's voice is a pure mix of thoughtful intensity and dynamics that match the emotion of the bravely personal lyrics. The band laid down tracks that are tasteful, yet biting at the same time. If you haven't heard these guys, you're missing something special. Buy this -- you won't be sorry.

Perfect CD Title -- Hooray for Great Music!
Hooray! The CD title says it all for music lovers. The band covers a wide range of styles and at times found myself comparing Eric's voice to a young Axle Rose. Being from Ohio, loved the cover art. "Ohio" is a great tune, but then I've enjoyed all of them. "Apartment" is another one that we've really enjoyed. A great CD for fans of rock-n-roll.
