Artist Bio?

To me a bio is for someone who is no longer creating. Who really cares what I’ve done or not done in the past? I don’t have a long sad tale to tell. I will never be anyone’s hero. I’m not famous (obviously) and I don’t care. I prefer the darkness to the spotlight. If you want to know who I am: just listen to my music. It’s all there. The ups, the downs and all the in-between bull ...The name BAD LOVE JUNKIE is self-explanatory. I embrace my dark side. From country, folk, to pop, I love everything and anything that is good. And I do it all. My motif depends on what’s happening in my life at the moment. Life will change from day to day. Hell from minute to minute. I won’t be the same person tomorrow that I am today. And neither will you. A musical hero? I’ve never had one, but the closest thing to it would be the late great Townes Van Zandt. I release a new album not when the timing is right but when it’s time. I’m always working on the next song, or the last, last song. I’m forever trying to shake some bad habit, buying my time until a new one comes along. I change. But the one thing that will never change is I will always write from the heart.

And if you’re still here reading this. Maybe these songs will touch you.

My life is always an open book.
And the story of my life is in my music

Peace Eric aka

Bad Love Junkie


 

One of the first Alternative Singer/Songwriters. Eric was Alt Singer/Songwriter BEFORE there was a genera for it. Eric has released five albums under his BAD LOVE JUNKIE persona starting with 2007’s ALT Country classic BAD LOVE JUNKIE. Eric released a string of Alternative Country albums before shifting gears with the more rock-driven NOT SAD, HOPELESS. The title track borrowed from a Towns Van Zandt interview By the release of 2015's My Alter Ego Eric had completely left country music behind and has yet looked back. Like his hero Towns Eric is a bit of an outsider and happy to have the freedom to create and release any style of music he wants.
Eric is currently writing and recording a new album. Look for it in 2019
