Eric Durrance
A self-described hard working, Southern Baptist, Eric Durrance is a multi-talented, self-taught musician and soulful vocals. He was the lead singer of the number 1 top charting christian alternative rock band Big Dismal. The Tallahassee native (who divides his time between his farm in Florida and Nashville) is a well-rounded singer/songwriter who attributes his personal character and allure toward country music to his family and southern upbringing. “I learned to play a little bit of everything. My stepfather was a drummer, guitarist, piano player and one heck of a singer, and my mom and grandfather taught me to sing harmony,” Durrance introduces.

Eric’s 2008 album release, ANGELS FLY AWAY, comes from the talented producers Teddy Gentry (Alabama/Emerson Drive) and Mark Bright (Rascal Flatts/Carrie Underwood). In a business where “timing is everything,” the project seemingly came together at just the right time for Eric, who confides the entire CD captures everything he and his former manager, Dan Godwin, worked toward. Dan Godwin, to whom Eric dedicates ANGELS FLY AWAY, was a fatality of a motorcycle accident in December 2007. “Dan and I had a father/son relationship,” Eric said. “He gave me freedom and reined me in to guide me when I needed it. From a business perspective, he watched out for my best interests and reminded me to listen to my heart; from a personal perspective, he was my ‘heart and soul’ manager. This CD has Dan’s spirit throughout.”

As a songwriter In 2009 Eric celebrated his first top 10 release with Jake Owen with their song Eight Second Ride , written in Tallahassee before Jake moved to Nashville.

Eric is currently the songwriter and front man for the super group Tobacco Rd Band. You can check them out on all digital platforms or at Tobaccordband.com
