After dropping his EP Eric B for President: Term 2 in March, Eric Bellinger follows-up with an acoustic rendition of the project. Stripping away from electronic beats, Bellinger’s rearranges the songs on the EP using only acoustic instruments.
“I love acoustic versions because guitar is such a simple, yet potent, instrument,” explain Bellinger. “The feeling from those strings alone brings so much organic raw emotion to the music. Stripping down all the instruments and allowing the listener to focus in on lyrics, melodies, harmonies, ad-libs, and my intricately detailed vocal arrangements is important to me.”
He continued, “With everything being so trapped-out nowadays I just wanted to give the people another alternative. Something different, something soulful, something they could feel.”
