Eric Selby releases new single “The First Taste”

Blues Hall of Fame Inductee Eric Selby is dripping with musicality.  He is a sought after artist/producer, versatile in many genres of music and has performed live and recorded with many talented artists, including:  Billy Thompson (Little Milton, Albert King, Art Neville), Ron Holloway (Warren Haynes, Dizzy Gillespie, The Allman Brothers, Sonny Rollins, Tedeschi/Trucks), Daryl Johnson (The Neville Brothers, Daniel Lanois, Emmylou Harris, U2, Bob Dylan), James East (Elton John, Lionel Richie, Eric Clapton), Warner Williams (Piedmont blues legend, 2012 NEA National Heritage Fellowship Winner), Drink Small (Piedmont blues legend, 2015 NEA National Heritage Fellowship Winner), Bill Payne (Little Feat, J.J. Cale, The Doobie Brothers), Lenny Castro (Adele, The Rolling Stones, Steely Dan, Maroon 5, Stevie Wonder) and Mike Finnigan (Jimi Hendrix, Joe Cocker), to name a few.  He has been named Blue411‘s Drum Thumper “Jimi” Award winner, been nominated for multiple WAMMIE awards, inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame, #1 on Blues411‘s charts multiple times and was featured in Modern Drummer Magazine for his approach and perspective in their “Drummer Blogs.”

In 2020, Selby steps out front, releasing his first solo record of original music entitled “Do, Baby.” This release is a culmination of the various styles and genres he has had the opportunity to embrace through his musical travels. He has recruited many of musical associates along the way to give this release a new vibe and emotion with every song.  He recently released his latest single “The First Taste”, and with main inspirations being The Beatles and Pink Floyd, this track definitely stems from influences of the latter.  Defying expectations by beginning with a harmonica riff the track soon throws listeners into a nostalgic rock tune complete with the hook “there’s gotta be a better way.”   The soothing vocals combined with the distorted instrumentation result in a wonderfully complimentary track.   The production is beautiful and this song is something you can sink your teeth into or enjoy in the background during the work day.  You can follow Eric Selby and stay up-to-date on all upcoming music, artist and tour news, as well as stream and purchase his music, via the following links:
