Biography

Eric Stinnett is a soulful R&B singer born and raised in Dallas, Texas. While his looks may be reminiscent of the R&B singer Joe, he sounds more like his other influences: Brian McKnight, D’Angelo, Anthony Hamilton, Maxwell, Raphael Saadiq and others from the Neo-Soul movement. Like many other great soul singers, he too honed his early musical gifts singing in the church. He excelled at trombone while playing in several jazz groups and ensembles at the high school & collegiate level. It was there where he discovered a love for jazz and began weaving it into his own gospel and soul-inspired vocal style. His latest project, "Chocolate Soul", embodies this new sound in his live-recorded EP. The first single, "Whiplash" has been getting rotation on Internet radio and in the UK ever since debuting in the Atlanta International Soul Summit 2007.

Lyrics

Whiplash

Written By: Eric Stinnett/Chris Lomax

Can I get an appointment please,
It's not a cough and no it's not a sneeze

See I was tryin' to catch a peek
of this honey who was eyein' me
and when I tried to holla back
I moved too swiftly and I heard a crack

Can I get some relief for the drama I've been through?

I got this pain in my brain
and this strange feeling in my neck
and every time she passes me by
I can't control myself I have to check
Dr. tell me if you please
could this be or is it just me?

Chorus:
I think she's giving me Whiplash
giving me Whiplash
giving me Whiplash
repeat (x3)
Yes sir I certainly do
Yes sir I certainly do

Dr. tell me that I ain't the first ridiculous fool

to go crazy and halfway break my neck off women will do that to you
I'm so tired of losing my mind
chasing after the perfect dime.
If you fix me Dr. I'll never do it again

Chorus

Do you have some advice for me,
Dr. tell me how can this be
with all these honeys in your office
you haven't fallen for a similar trap
look they're moving all around us
their bodies move in each and every way

and though my mind wants to hold steady, my neck can't help but begin to sway

Cuz I got this pain in my brain and this strange feelin' in my neck
and everytime she passes me by
I can't control myself I have to check
Dr. tell me if you please
could this be or is it just me?

I think she's giving me Whiplash
giving me Whiplash
giving me Whiplash
repeat (x3)

I think I'm gonna half to sue you
Yes sir I certainly do

(ad lib til end)
