E.R.I.E. came on to the Albany, NY scene in 2020, the week a global pandemic began to rear its ugly head. What began as a passion project developed while singer/songwriter TJ Foster was unexpectedly laid up in a hospital bed for three days, has turned into a fully-formed quartet, winning over audiences with their catchy songs and energetic live performances.
Their debut album, "Don't Wanna Live, Don't Wanna Die" (on Mint 400 Records), takes listeners on a journey through existentialism, mortality, and the universal challenge of trying to make the most of our time here. The band - guitarist Matt Delgado, drummer Chad Flewwelling and bassist Levi Jennes alongside Foster - is currently writing and recording the follow-up at home in Upstate New York.
