about

The past few years have been very busy for Dayton-born musician Eric Leonhardt Brown. After releasing his first album in over eleven years, INVERSION, last August, Eric decided to keep composing new songs with the intention of recording another project somewhere down the road. "I didn't want to drop the ball on my creative self anymore and to keep a strong discipline of songwriting on a daily basis. I wasn't really prepared for where that was going to take me, honestly!". Where it led was to a new album project with over 30 songs in the mix. 
Eric decided to ask INVERSION producers John Paul Davis and MS Borders to join on the project and they eventually pared the songs down to 24 tracks. "I wrote a concept album with a main character as the singer/narrator, which is something I've never done before", says Brown, "and now I had 24 songs that wove the storyline together and we started realizing that what we were attempting was pretty damn ambitious in scope and size, a 24 track concept album!”
The album, titled Climbing Mountains Across The Shoreline Of Your Thought, is set in the not too distant future where society is living in a detached and digitized world where human interactions have been dumbed down to interacting solely via social media. The main character, Spooky Gladstone, shares his world with us through these 24 songs and his personal struggles to retain his own humanity as he lives in a screen-centric culture where communication is shallow, summed up in tweets, and lacks empathy or depth of feeling.
The songs on Climbing Mountains vary in content and genre, blending rock, jazz and electronic music with wildly original results. Several Dayton musicians play on the album including jazz pianist Brian Cashwell, bassist Christian Berg, sax players Hal Melia and Michael Bisig, singer Felicia Jefferson, drummer Joe Tritschler as well as experimental electronic musician John Paul Davis, and Eric's longtime collaborator, guitarist Matt Borders. "I've been making music with Matt for over 30 years, he's an amazing musician who has a great musical mind and we work together so flawlessly that I can't imagine making an album without him!" The album was recorded at Sound Space Studios in Yellow Springs and was engineered, mixed and mastered by Chris Hertzler.
