Creating a new song for artist client Jason Doty, who supplied me with a rough phone sketch of his idea...

I first met Casey Cochran at our annual Halloween party last October, and loved him immediately. James Maple had been talking him up to me for quite some time in regards to his writing skills, and he played a few for me that night. Anyway, the three of us began work on his record late last fall, ...

I’ve had some great recording experiences, but none could have prepared me for “the Dirt Floor experience”. Trust me, it’s a thing, which is why it’s in quotes here, and if you do your research, as I did prior to becoming a believer, you’ll understand exactly what that all means. I met with Eric based on the reputation he had as a producer and multi instrumentalist, working wonders with solo artists that is admired. His name came up often in certain circles in regards to his talents, and I’d become familiar with Dirt Floor from album the credits of some of my favorite artists. Anyway, I made my first album elsewhere due to budgetary limitations, and I’m just sorry I wasted that time and energy. The truth is, I should have just done it right the first time and gone to Eric, as I’m doing now. We are in the process of making what I now consider a do over, and something I’m already so proud of.

Dirt Floor is a one of a kind experience for songwriters, and musicians, which I would highly recommend. Eric's talents as both a producer and mult-instrumentalist shine, and his calm, cool, guiding personality makes each Dirt Floor session memorable. There is no question of where you go to make beautiful music in the Northeast. Dirt Floor is the place that will leave you with no regrets.

Eric produced and recorded two new songs for me remotely, due to the current pandemic, and the results are just incredible. I’d heard he was one of the most gifted multi instrumentalists out there, and now I can concur. I’m influenced heavily by artists like Dawes, Father John Misty and the Eagles. Eric somehow managed to create something that’s reminiscent of all of these, while at the same time letting my uniqueness through. I’ll definitely be making a record with him when I can safely do so. Thanks for everything E!
