A Recent Month’s Spotlight Music
“It’s Not Like You Don’t Know Me” by Eric Erdman
When anticipation delivers something special, it truly becomes magical to those who anxiously waited for it to happen. The long-awaited album “It’s Not Like You Don’t Know Me” by Gulf Coast favorite Eric Erdman proved to be that defining moment for his many devoted fans. On January 17, 2018, Erdman premiered his songs to a sold-out VIP release show at The Listening Room of Mobile to a standing ovation. Two days later he did it again to another sold-out crowd at Cedar Street Social Club, also in Mobile, Alabama. “It’s Not Like You Don’t Know Me” was released on the Baldwin County Public Records label, produced by Erdman and the multi-talented Rick Hirsch, mixed by Grammy-winning Trina Shoemaker, engineered by Keylan Laxton, and mastered by Eric Conn at Independent Mastering of Nashville, TN. Erdman is joined on all tracks by fellow musicians John Milham (drums) and Tommy Sciple (bass). Some of the other principal participants on the album are Beverly Jo Scott, Rick Hirsch, Kristy Lee, Ryan Balthrop, Bill Summers and Hannah McFarland. Eric Erdman is a gifted songwriter and delivers on high levels with the latest album. One of his special gifts is his ability to team up seamlessly with others, as he often does, both on stage and as a songwriter. Erdman’s latest features Tim Jackson as a co-writer on several tracks, while a number of other songwriters lend their talents alongside Erdman throughout the album.
This very personal and captivating new album is sure to receive much acclaim in the coming months. Congratulations to Eric Erdman and all those talented people involved in this highly recommended album.
