Eric Carmecí started playing drums at the age of twelve at his local church. At that same age he began to learn how to play the trombone and later on joined the marching band in middle school. Music has been part of his life from a young age as he joined different bands as a drummer. Soon after seeing that the bands would break up, he decided to start singing and picked up the piano, keyboard, guitar, bass, kena, soprano, tenor, and alto sax. He also picked up many other percussion instruments and began to sequence and arrange his own music/songs. He always wanted to have his own band, and one day he finally made it happen. He started a band called “Carmecí" in 2003. He began to song write with a guitar player and later on added a bass player and drummer. In a short period of 3 months Carmecí wrote 9 songs and were playing shows through out Houston Texas. Then as they added new members to the band they went into the studio to record a three song EPK that received air play on Houston’s very own 94.5 The Buzz. Carmecí was able to play as a featured artist for The Texas Buzz Show at Scout Bar for 94.5FM The Buzz. They also played for the 89.3FM KSBJ Summer Fest, Lake Wood Church, Strawberry Festival, Westheimer Street Festival and was asked to open up for The Super Tones in Beaumont Texas "Ford Park", and Zona 7 in the city of Houston. Soon after the guitarist of the band left they struggled to find another guitar player that could pick up where it left off, other band members where recruited but things just wouldn't seem stand the test of time.
Finally in December of 2008 Eric decided to launch his Solo Album adopting the artist name of “Carmecí”. He was able to call on some close musician friends that he had co-written with in the past, went into the studio and started to record his debut ablum. In April of 2009 the album was completely finished, after a 7 year long journey. Now he was able to find the band members he always wanted from day one, who not only delivered in the studio, but bring the show, the drive, and the energy to every live show.
As you listen to the new album you can feel the lyrics piercing through the soul. They deal with inner feelings, inner struggles, failures and shortcomings. Join Eric Carmecí and his band on the ride of their life … through his new debut 10 song album that’s raw and real. You’ll realize you are not alone in this journey called life!
