"On April 20, Eric Corne will release his new studio album, Happy Songs For The Apocalypse. Known for his production work for blues greats like John Mayall and Walter Trout, Corne has also become an integral part of Los Angeles’ country scene, having had a hand in projects from up-and-coming artists like Jaime Wyatt and Sam Morrow via his label Forty Below Records.
Corne pulls together the sum total of his influences on Happy Songs For The Apocalypse, an album that, true to its title, confronts today’s complex social issues with a critic’s eye, careful optimism, and a fusion of rock, blues, country, and folk. To help pull off such an ambitious project, Corne called upon musical friends like guitarist/fiddle player Freddy Koella (k.d. lang), keyboardist Bo Koster (My Morning Jacket), and bassist Joe Karnes (Fitz and the Tantrums), to name a handful." - American Songwriter Magazine
