The latest solo disc, "maximum solo acoustic" in its purest form.
"In My Shoes cracks open with a steamroller. Eck chugs through “The Gossip Train” like a man in hurry to make up for lost time. Big, bold Leadbelly-like guitar riffage pushes the song, while Eck chews up the lyrics and spits them out with all of the appropriate intensity and urgency that the song demands." Greg Haymes, Nippertown.com
The "maximum combo acoustic" third album, rough hewn Americana with fiddles, dobro, pedal steel and more. Guest vocalists include Kris McKay, Rosanne Raneri, MotherJudge, Mitch Elrod and Kevin Maul.
"Grittier and less baroque than Resonator with songs (and sounds) that cut to the very core of American roots music. Eck's voice is blessed with a passion most artists would die for." Ellen Geisel, Dirty Linen
Resonator overcomes the dreaded sophomore slump with smart, lean songs and lush string arrangements balancing rustic overtones; it bears comparison to the early work of Jesse Winchester.
"Eck is an amazing performer, songwriter and storyteller—Resonator is one of my all time favorite CDs; each song is like a Raymond Carver story, detailed, direct and memorable." Fred Rudofsky, Amazon.com
Lo-Fi, yes, but loaded with quality songs. The “maximum solo acoustic” debut with accompaniment by Dobro master Kevin Maul.
"Eck delights in subverting coffeehouse expectations with unpredictable bursts of manic energy, lending a distinct urgency to his unpretentious, romantic songs." Jim Santo, Alternative Press
A collection of classic Carter Family gospel songs, performed live by Lost Radio Rounders and Friends, including Steven "Cousin Clyde" Davies, Ryan Dunham, Kim Kilby and M.R. Poulopoulos.
