Biography

Albuquerque NM, United States

Born in New York City, Eric ventured west to San Francisco from Albuquerque NM in the early 1990’s after the breakup of his punky psychedelic wastrel trio band The Angry Babies, McFadden soon found himself fronting an acclaimed gypsy Americana desert rock quartet with prominent violin called Liar. Stints playing in bluesy pick up groups like The Faraway Brothers and many late night jam sessions led to a long running spot as guitarist and mandolin player in funk maestro George Clinton’s P-Funk All Stars road revue. He toured for 18 months with Eric Burdon.

In addition, Eric McFadden has worked with many top artists like Les Claypool, Nels Cline, Widespread Panic, Bo Diddley, Jackson Browne, Joe Strummer, Keb Mo, Reverend Horton Heat and members of The Meters, among others.

Eric McFadden as a solo artist lyrically often explores a dark and freaky circus like landscape populated with frustrated oddballs, and embellishes these tales with guitar playing that quotes icons like Django Reinhardt as easily as Eddie Hazel. His latest album, “Bluebird on Fire”, is a crossover between dirty blues, stoner-rock and hard soul. The album features members of such groups as Fishbone, Eagles of Death Metal, Cake, WSP and Tom Waits. Eric continues to tour internationally both solo, and with his group, the Eric McFadden Trio and Stockholm Syndrome.

    Upon another listen it is clear to me that Last.FM needs to reevaluate Eric's station. They couldn't be farther off about the artists they choose as being similar to Eric. It makes no sense...Not even in the ballpark.

    I know it's difficlult to categorize eric's music, but it seems that the artists that last fm claim to be similar to eric mcfadden are not very similar. what about queens of the stone age, tom waits, thin lizzy, jimi hendrix, black keys, morphine or dead weather? I think last fm should do some more listening to eric.

    Theres a load of live recordings available legally on archive.org. Only heard of him because he used to play with P-Funk but his own stuff is brilliant.

    His music is amazing, and now finally people can listen to it on Last.Fm. I'm gonna find my voodoo lady.
