1) Eric the Red is a UK Hip-Hop artist on RLD records and Lost Scroll Records. Brother of rapper Leaf Dog and producer Illinformed, Eric created a career off the back of his lyricism with Leaf and Illinformed regularly on the beat. Since his 2016 Test Subjects collaboration album alongside the Creatures Of Habit collective, Eric made a name for himself staying true to the ways of old school hip-hop. The release of Caught Red Handed marked a fresh start on his journey, as it was released on his own independent label Lost Scroll Records. This was the first project dropped on the label, as a basis for future classics to follow.
2) Eric The Red was born in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. He had a band for about five years called 'Innate' but the band split in 2004 and Eric decided to start writting his own music. Some of his inspirations include Tom Waits who sings a very different sound of music. Eric The Red, otherwise known as Eric Lehtela, says huis music is 'experimental' because it is nothing like anyone has ever heard before. He hopes to soon get a record deal and start distributing his music.
