On October 10th, 2014 Eilean Records will release my new solo album – Nothing to Be Sad About. Recorded with a flurry of ideas in June of 2014 at my home in Hudson (NY) and conceived during the wedding of my cousin Dan at Pine Creek in the mountains outside of Williamsport, PA in May. This album serves both as a dedication to Dan and his new bride Sprite – and as a statement about what it is to be happy in life….lessons learned from Eric Holtry.
A huge thanks to my longtime collaborator Joe Houpert for his contributions to this album – you will hear his violin on the tracks that bookend his album and we work together so frequently I almost take his music for granted…so be sure to check out his many projects. And to Erich Steiger, an old friend and powerfully consistent mastering engineer whose name you will find on the bulk of my recorded work. And a fine guitarist to boot.
Pre-orders begin on October 3rd via the Eilean Records Bandcamp. Enjoy!
