Eric Maring's epic new release
- THE YEAR OF SEEING CLEARLY - released summer 2021.
Eric Maring’s 6th album release, The Year of Seeing Clearly was created during the 2020-21 pandemic era drawing largely from songs written and performed for Saturday evening livestreams with his sons Leo and Julian. Recorded remotely in Maryland and Colorado, the band features 2 generations of Marings along with drummer Steve Fox (longtime collaborator and childhood friend) and bassist Dan Griffin to deliver heartfelt, cross-generational musicianship.
These powerful songs address the stories of our families, melting pot nation, the battles of right vs. wrong, and the challenges of social injustice we grapple with historically and today in the covid era. The recordings offer a fresh twist on what a song can mean to the writers, musicians, and listeners as we explore critical issues of our time.
