Eric Martin began his singing career in the late 1970s with a band called 415. With 415, Eric opened for many established acts like Billy Squire, Hall & Oats, Journey, ZZ Top and Foreigner. The band was signed to Elektra/Asylum records and released Sucker For a Pretty Face. Soon after, they changed their name to the Eric Martin Band. The band parted ways after returning from a 1984-85 tour with ZZ Top. For the next couple of years, Eric continued to tour and release albums as a solo artist. In 1988, Eric teamed up with Billy Sheehan, Pat Torpey and Paul Gilbert to form Mr. Big. The band found huge success with the release of 6 studio albums, numerous hit singles and 6 top-selling live CDs. All combined, worldwide sales reached the 7 million mark. Mr. Big released their final album, Actual Size in 2001.
In between promoting and preparing for Mr. Big’s 2002 farewell tour, Eric continued to record songs for his fourth solo CD. I’m Goin Sane impressed critics and was released in Asia, Europe and the U.S. in late 2002. Eric went back into the studio to start recording Pure following a successful Japan tour, the European God’s Festival and a 23-city U.S tour.
Eric continued to record and tour internationally until 2009 when the original Mr. Big lineup decided to get back together to mark their 20th anniversary. They released a greatest hits album that went to #1, embarked on a sold out tour and recorded a live DVD at the infamous Budokan in Tokyo. The band had so much fun together that they decided to continue making music. The band released What If in 2011 and toured the world for 10 months following the release.
Today, Eric continues to tour like he always wanted to – on solo acoustic runs. Stay tuned Mr. Big plans on releasing a new album and tour support in the Fall of 2015.

Cracker have just released their tenth studio effort, entitled Berkeley To Bakersfield, a double-album that finds this uniquely American band traversing two different sides of the California landscape – the northern Bay area and further down-state in Bakersfield.

Despite being less than a five-hour drive from city to city, musically, these two regions couldn’t be further apart from one another. In the late ‘70s and ‘80s a harder-edged style of rock music emerged from the Bay area, while Bakersfield is renowned for its own iconic twangy country music popularized, most famously, by Buck Owens and Merle Haggard in the ‘60s and ‘70s. Yet despite these differences, they are both elements that Cracker’s two cofounders, David Lowery and Johnny Hickman, have embraced to some degree on nearly every one of their studio albums over the last two decades. On Berkeley To Bakersfield, however, instead of integrating these two genres together within one disc, they’ve neatly compartmentalized them onto their own respective regionally-titled LPs.

As Lowery explains, “On the Berkeley disc the band is the original Cracker lineup – Davey Faragher, Michael Urbano, Johnny and myself. This is the first time this lineup has recorded together in almost 20 years. We began recording this album at East Bay Recorders in Berkeley, CA. For this reason we chose to stylistically focus this disc on the music we most associate with the East Bay: Punk and Garage with some funky undertones. To further match our sense of place we often took an overtly political tone in the lyrics.”

“This Bakersfield disc represents the ‘California country’ side of the band. Throughout the band’s 24-year history we’ve dabbled in Country and Americana but this time we wanted to pay homage to the particular strain of Country and Country-Rock music that emerges from the inland valleys of California.”

Cracker has been described as a lot of things over the years: alt-rock, Americana, insurgent-country, and have even had the terms punk and classic-rock thrown at them. But more than anything Cracker are survivors. Cofounders Lowery and Hickman have been at it for almost a quarter of a century – amassing ten studio albums, multiple gold records, thousands of live performances, hit songs that are still in current radio rotation around the globe (“Low,” “Euro-Trash Girl,” “Get Off This” and “Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out With Me” to name just a few), and a worldwide fan base – that despite the major sea-changes within the music industry continues to grow each year.image
