Wreckless Eric Record Release with Thomas Heyman
You can't talk about Wreckless Eric without mentioning his enduring hit Whole Wide World-covered in stadiums and sheds from Aberdeen to Alabama -but there's more to him than just that. With over 40 years of recording and touring behind him he shuns the dictates of nostalgia and doesnt do comebacks for the simple reason that he never went away. His 2015 album amERICawas an urgent reminder of what hes about, and new album Construction Time & Demolition is a musically complex trawl through the psyche of a man with plenty to say and nothing to lose. It's always been that way: loud, dissonant, lyrical and gently melodic -cogent music for desperate times.
OPENER: Thomas Heyman started playing and recording in the late 1980s with the Philadelphia based band Go To Blazes. He wrote songs, played guitar, and the band released 5 full-length records and toured the US and Europe extensively before breaking up in 1997. After relocating to San Francisco in 1998, he began working as a sideman, eventually joining local favorites The Court and Spark, as well as Chuck Prophets band. All the while he was discovering his voice as a solo artist and bandleader. His second solo record Deliver Me was critically acclaimed, receiving 4 star reviews in both Mojo and Uncut magazine, and songs from the record were heard in the TV shows True Blood, Justified and Damages.
While he often works in a band context, Heyman primarily considers himself a folksinger whose job is to tell stories that draw the listener in to his world.
