If you're a fan of straight-up, feel-good, rock n' roll music, you'll enjoy The Eric Stuart Band! Nashville Offbeat went to see them perform at The 5 Spot on Wednesday, June 5th, and was impressed by how tight this five-piece band was. Comprised of two guitars, bass, drums, and violin, this group never missed a beat! Their years of practice and touring were easily noted by their cohesiveness onstage.
Though several of their tunes had the same song form, the lyrics made up for it with poetic storytelling mixed with the direct edginess that is rock music. They played songs about silver linings, and had one dubbed an "Anti-Valentines Day" song, but for often melancholic subject matter, they have an upbeat feel to their sound.
Each player in the Eric Stuart Band is incredibly talented! Lead guitarist, Chas Holland, played beautifully, with passion seeping from each note during his solos. Bassist John Fox held down the groove while singing harmonies that melted into Eric Stuart's lead vocals. Four-time Grammy Award winning engineer, Joe Palmaccio, kept the beat on drums with rock-solid timing and tasteful fills. And we can't forget Maria Conti on violin, offering a different flavor to a classic rock vibe.

Her latest single, “Calm Rage” sent shivers down my spine when I first heard it. The raw intensity of the lyrics paired with the cinematic style of production immediately flooded my mind with images that should be found only in a Hollywood thriller.

Sometimes I feel like the indie-folk scene isn’t something that everyone can get on board with, but ‘The Sinner’ is a universal hit for all to enjoy.
