ABOUT

My name is Erik Childs and I have always and will always continue to write music for the people. My lyrics explore the whole spectrum of human emotion, bringing tearful depths as well as goofy, surrealism that'll just make you laugh. Both the good ad the bad side of things shall be encompassed. My ultimate mission is to bring the world to there knees in the deep, existential pondering only to bring them back up to their feet to dance all their worries away. Like my dear friend, Old Gregg, I be trying to milk the funk. Drink that straight up funky shake from outer space.

Anyways, I'm looking for people who are trying to go the distance.
I'm in it to win it. Are you?
