Biography

Nashville, United States (1997 – present)

Last Train Home is an American alt-country band led by Eric Brace (guitar, lead vocals), formed originally in 1997 in Washington D.C. and subsequently based in Nashville. In 2009, they released an EP under the name Eric Brace & Last Train Home.

Originally a Washington D.C.-based roots rock band, with “country, swing, bluegrass, blues, folk, mariachi, punk, pop, and Tin Pan Alley influences”. Now based out of Nashville, Eric Brace and the gang travel around the US singing about the Donut Girl.

LTH frontman Eric Brace is a former staff writer for The Washington Post where he was a columnist covering the local music and nightlife scene. Prior to Last Train Home, Eric played in several Washington area bands, including B-Time, the Beggars, and Kevin Johnson & the Linemen. He also ran a local rock label, Top Records, for many years, before focusing on his own music.

It was in late 1996 that Eric began pulling together a band to record some of his songs. Those recordings became the band’s eponymous debut, “Last Train Home,” released in 1997 on the D.C. indie Adult Swim Records (run by Dischord Records co-owner and punk rock legend Jeff Nelson). In 1999, the band returned with the deeper and richer release, “True North.” With rave reviews coming in on a regular basis, the band started touring the east coast more widely, and took a couple of trips to Nashville to play its music.
