Throughout his illustrious career, singer, songwriter and guitarist Eric McFadden has steadfastly rebuked the Sirens of commerce, instead heeding the fearless, uncompromising Muses inside his head. This all-consuming obsession helps explain the twisted trajectory of McFadden’s career. A veteran of celebrated west coast bands including Liar, Alien Lovestock, Angry Babies, IZM, Holy smokes, EMT, Stockholm Syndrome, Faraway Brothers, and the Eric McFadden Experience, McFadden has recorded several independently produced solo and band albums, many of which are regarded as underground masterworks by fans and critics alike. On his 1996 solo debut “Who’s Laughing Now,” McFadden unleashed his macabre carnival gypsy-voodoo blues and Spanish-inflected rock sensibilities on an unsuspecting public. In the years since Eric has recorded and released several albums on such labels as Terminus (Atlanta), Fortune (San Francisco) and Bad Reputation (Paris).
Eric toured Europe, Japan, Australia and the U.S. as mandolinist/guitarist with Funk legend George Clinton & Parliament/Funkadelic for over 3 years, and continues to collaborate with Clinton on outside projects. Eric is also a member of The Stockholm Syndrome which features Widespread Panic’s Dave Schools on bass, Wally Ingram (Sheryl Crow) on drums, Danny Louis (Gov’t Mule) on Keys and Jerry Joseph on vocals and guitar. Eric spent a year and a half touring the world with Eric Burdon & The Animals, and continues to tour with his primary band, The Eric McFadden Trio, which features bass phenomenon James Whiton and rotating cast of drummers including the great Paulo Baldi. EMT recently released its third record, “Delicate Thing”.
Eric has also collaborated on stage and/or in the studio with the regal likes of Bo Diddley, blues troubadour Keb Mo’, prog-metalists Living Colour, Clash frontman Joe Strummer, Avant-punk jazz great Nels Cline (Wilco), Primus mastermind Les Claypool, Meters guitarist Leo Nocentelli, drummer Zigaboo Modeliste and bassist George Porter jr.,Master songsmith Pat MacDonald, experimental country punk pioneer Carla Bozulich, Joe Santiago and Dave Lovering of The Pixies, Widespread panic, Jackson Browne, Punk legend Mike Watt (Minutemen), The Reverend Horton Heat, Galactic and others. Eric’s latest release, “Train to Salvation”, is now available through The French label, Bad Reputation.
