Joined by producer/engineer/musician Malcolm Burn and a select recording band, ERIC STEPANIAN brings depth and rock and roll diversity to bear on the 12 songs of Goodnight Scarlett. After two successful band albums (Stepanians Autumn She Leaves and Wait Out The Rain), Eric Stepanian steps out on his own with a gripping song cycle that wraps themes of love, loss and triumph in a sensuous musical palette with new CD, GOODNIGHT SCARLETT.

Erics songs are charged with a sense of inner turmoil, but his gift for storytelling is what attracts, not heart on the sleeve histrionics. The songs of GOODNIGHT SCARLETT are as relevant as real life. GOODNIGHT SCARLETT rocks a miracle mile, recalls melancholic memories like rotting rose petals, and ultimately finds release in redemption and self-acceptance. Prime movers include the Stones-ish Bittersweet, the open wound-on-ice glam of Everybody, the caustically rocking Call Me When Youre Famous, and the cinematic, black eyed closer, Last Goodbye.

Erics song, Criminal was recently heard on ESPNs Baseball Tonight; the 29 year old has opened for Maroon 5, Jason Mraz (to whom he has been compared), Rusted Root, Robert Randolph, Howie Day, Jacks Mannequin, Matt Nathanson, Cowboy Mouth.
