Bio

Soulchasm was started in 1999 by Eric out of both a love of music, electronic music more specifically, and a desire long held to have a creative outlet of his own. At first, as an anonymous project working under pseudonyms such as Cklay Lee or Klay d. with no hints as to who was really behind it, the material was dark, muddy, and unrefined, yet still managed to garnish glowing and respectful reviews. The "My Greatest Choice" EP and the follow up "Release Her" remix disc, which featured remixes from largely unknowns, were released in 2000 and 2001 respectively.

As time passed and Eric became more serious about the project, the pseudonyms were dropped and the songwriting elements were greatly refined. The first releases went out of print and Soulchasm went through a rebirth of sorts, partly thanks to producer/engineer Shawn Spencer (Breather, Boiler Room Productions) who helped Eric fine tune his sound after meeting with him in 2001. After an effort to rewrite and rerecord the material from the "My Greatest Choice" EP, those sessions were ultimately scrapped in favor of starting over again from scratch.

In 2003, the public got their first taste of the redefined Soulchasm with the release of "So Persistent," a melding of rock, metal, trance, and drum and bass. Later that year Eric would enter the studio again with Shawn to lay down tracks for an "industry demo," some of which were featured on the "Love Is Real" EP, Soulchasm's first official release since 2000, which was released in July 2005. The three songs featured from the recording sessions with Shawn on this EP were "Love Is Real," "Carry On," and, as the first single, "Call Me Back." These tracks were mixed by Grammy nominated Blake Eiseman (www.binksound.com), who is known for his work with Usher on his "Confessions" album among many, many others. The other two tracks included on the EP are "So Persistent (Cold Into the Wired Mix)," which was mixed by Bret Autrey of Voxis, and "My Facade (See Through Mix)."

A slow and steadily growing buzz has been building since the release of the "Love Is Real" EP, as Eric continues to work on a full length album, with an eye toward release in the first half of 2006. In regard to the full length debut, Eric simply had this to say in a recent update sent to fans, "I want this thing to be right." All can rest assured that, when the time has come, it will be.

Interviews are currently being accepted in support of the EP's release, as well as requests for radio and review materials. Contact information, as well as samples from the "Love Is Real" EP, are readily available within this electronic press kit.
