After completely losing his dead dry hair by 17, Eric Winzenried realized at a young age that life has a way of forcing its stereotypical imprint on the soul. Since then, writing and recording music has been a way for him to forget the various bad hairstyles he attempted throughout the 90's (for instance, the infamous bald guy with pony tail look). He's had the privilege of working many exciting jobs. From office supplies replenisher to food delivery specialist, from wrangler of the mentally ill to naked guy in plays, all his experiences have influenced the eclectic nature of his music. But it wasn't until he found himself divorced at 28, displaced, and sharing a tiny studio apartment with giant sized cockroaches that he finally found his voice as a singer-songwriter.
Self-deprecating humor, sarcasm, and their not-so-distant cousin, anger, are a common link throughout their albums HOORAY!! , SWELLand their brand new release THE ADVENTURE THAT WENT TOO FAR. Songs such as "You Can't Stay at My Apartment" which deals with the psycho uninvited house guest who never leaves and "Therapy" which tells the charming story of a crystal meth smoking ex-girlfriend are examples of Winzenried's lyrical style. The music itself is a synthesis of different genres including hip hop, pop, rock, glam, reggae, and alternative.  However, 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.
Around L.A., this group of alcoholic misfits are also know as The Hollywood Drunks, especially since the name Winzenried is too hard to spell, pronounce, or even look at without becoming completely exhausted. In hindsight, they realize now that it was a bad name choice but alas they are stuck with it like an old cold sore that never leaves, thus, the entirely not subtle name change to Winzenried aka Hollywood Drunks.
Their brand new album THE ADVENTURE THAT WENT TOO FAR has just been released in 2018, but if you’re looking for a great off the wall holiday album check out their classic HOLLYWOOD DRUNKS CHRISTMAS.


The Hollywood Drunks would like to announce the release of their brand new album THE ADVENTURE THAT WENT TOO FAR.  The title is based on a short story by singer/songwriter Eric Winzenried's daugher Lucy Winzenried. The short story deals with the death of Lucy's cat who got hit by a car down the street from their house. Her cat had never crossed the street before but after a late night of partying with another cat was last seen across the street by a neighbor before being hit in the morning. 
THE ADVENTURE THAT WENT TOO FAR explores the themes of getting older but not getting complacement. It follows the trail of life while watching your kids, your relationships, your dreams, your friends, and even your own parents progress down that same final timeline. Songs such as "DYNAMITE" and "HOURS TILL MORNING" focus on powering through the absurdity and cruelty that life throws our way while "THAT'S THE JOKE" deals with the fraility of preserving relationships. In the autobiographical song "2 SISTERS", Eric recounts the tragic death of his sister at the age of 12.
Once again, the music itself is a synthesis of different genres including hip hop, pop, rock, glam, reggae, folk and alternative. This eclectic nature is symbolic of life. However, these songs all share the same universal message: Life is short, precious, absurd, and beautiful in the same breath so don't let it pass you by while your asleep.
