ERIC TERRELL In an industry congested with predictability and repetition, it is often a challenge for an artist to maintain originality while appealing to the masses. Chicago native Eric Terrell has maintained his innocence with his debut album "Confrontation" and now with his second album "Ten". Eric Terrell is no stranger to the Chicago music scene. He began piano lessons as a youth and later began taking vocal lessons at the Chicago Conservatory of Music in downtown Chicago. It didn't take the soulful tenor long to realize that music and singing were his destination for life. After recording several demos with local producers and moving around to various production homes, Eric Terrell's dreams of making it in the music industry were starting to fade away. He quietly retired his pen and vanished into Chicago's tarnished and struggling music scene. After being introduced to yet another producer, Eric Terrell decided to take up the offer to meet with Crazy Flow Entertainment's producer Ronnie McPherson from St. Louis, an unsigned R&B heavy hitter when it came to production. The two studio junkies hit it off immediately and began recording and developing local Chicago artists. It was five years later that Eric Terrell's passion for singing led him into the booth and the result was his debut album "Confrontation". Eric Terrell's "Confrontation" was released in 2008 and like most first albums of unsigned artist; it hit big in the local Chicago Club scene but did not have the financial backing to become a nationwide success. Now back in the game Eric Terrell has released his second album on 10/10/2010 titled "TEN" featuring the remake of Smokey Robinson's "Easy To Love". The hit single is loved by Chicago's steppers and recently has been named under "Songs to Step By" on the National Steppers Society website. The Confrontation and Ten albums feature production from Gammy Award nominee producer and arranger Rob Diggy with donations on the guitar from Steve "Funkyworm" Butler. Eric Terrell co-wrote and arranged most tracks along side his producer Ronnie McPherson. Both Albums' are a sure blue print that Eric Terrell has the staying power to last in today's R&B arena.
