Whilst taking in "the Eric Eggleston Band" in Gothenburg recently, it would seem that the beautiful Swedes had been bopping to the boys' beats for decades. Songs like "20-20" and "Racking my Brain" had me feeling great, and it wasn't just the view, the tunes carry a soulful innocence that blend genres the way that I felt like blending gene pools...I will be lining up for the first interview."

This Modern Life ***1/2 (Good - Excellent)

Recorded shortly after his return from a 27 gig Scandinavian tour earlier this year, the debut commercial release by Ottawa's Eric Eggleston and his three-piece band is a sunny, pleasing affair

Play it when you're down, play it when you're pumped, play it when you just want to dance around the kitchen: it's a fresh summer breeze every time. Bright, soaring harmonies with a little R&B, light and bouncy textures, great hooks and melodies, a steadfast refusal to take himself or circumstance too seriously even as he acknowledges life's occasional bitchiness.

Eggleston's music is less an antidote to post-millennial stress than a simple celebration of waking up in the morning. This modern life, as it turns out, is a good thing.

Eggleston's songs evoke an emotional response, a common trait of hit records. His music is unpretentious and natural. The quality sets up an environment of immediate comfort. I was surprised at how many great songs are on this album.

I would not change anything about the tour. They are a lovely bunch of lads, both talented and modest to boot, a rare and valued combination.

A rapidly swelling following and best of all, possessed of healthy self-confidence.

Bio

Four lads in their mid twenties, have been together for 5 years. They have performed over 700 shows, including tours to Ireland, Finland, Denmark, Sweden & Norway. Additionally, they recently toured Ontario for corporate sponsors, Molson's and Alexander Keith's. They recently played the side stage at the Toronto Molson Amphitheatre for the Rod Stewart event. Eggleston will appear on the OMNI Network "Music On Demand" series to be aired Q4 across United States.

Eggleston's self released album sold over 2,000 copies stage side, and their latest album "This Modern Life" was released March 2004. To date the album has received rave reviews. Ottawa Citizen gave the album a good-excellent rating, and it is garnishing Canadian airplay.

The group has a great stage presence and deliver a wicked live show. All members have a professional, pleasant and appreciative disposition, and are a pleasure to work with.

The current goal of the group is to tour as much as possible in support of their original material and air play. The band is very comfortable playing covers for corporate events or to cater to an audience.
