Don't Wanna Live, Don't Wanna Die by E.R.I.E.




Don't Wanna Live, Don't Wanna Die by E.R.I.E.

New indie rock group E.R.I.E.released their debut album entitled "Don't Wanna Live, Don't Wanna Die", and it's easy to get hooked on the sound.  At the helm of the project is songwriter and producer TJ Foster, known for his work in other  projects along with his solo career in music. E.R.I.E. takes on a new direction for Foster as the band lays down some real deal classic rock roots. "Fire Away" leads the set of 11 songs that complete the album. You can feel the inner turmoil turn to an inspirational send off as storytelling begins. A great chorus and energy shows it's face while the song grows more powerful. The record plays out with folk-ish sounds and goes back to hitting a harder rock all with a gusto. "Doubt" is a near perfect example of what the record has to offer. Other notable songs include the swing time Americana song "The Background". Along with those, "Fears Come Runnin'" and "Life and/or Death" both very well performed and well written. The record has a terrific concept and to summarize, Foster explains that E.R.I.E.stands for "Everything Resides In Everyone". This is a record well worth a spin.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
