Eric Champion / Unexpected EP (2006) - My first independent release, made possible
through the generosity of Jon Phelps (founder of Full Sail).  I had a blast working with
friends Danny Phelps and Martin Woodlee on 9 songs in 2 main sessions.  One at
Darkhorse studios in Franklin, TN. and the other at the newly built Sonic Temple in
Ferndale, CA.  Only 4 of the 9 songs are on this EP.  Check out the dedicated website to
the left to find out about the other 5 tracks.

Rook / Bad Memory EP (2006) - ROOK is me, Cory Callahan, Jeremy Dean and Scott
Dansby.  We were joined on the recording by friend and keyboard genius Pete Geiger
and the solid drumming of Craig Barnette (MOFRO).  Later we decided to start playing
out live and Randall Shreve (Drums) stepped into the picture.  This EP was a labour of
love and came from friendship and the shared dream of being Rock Stars.  It's fun,
upbeat energy reflects that youthful vibe even though us dudes are way beyond our  
youth.  But we are aging like classic Les Pauls.  Getting old is cool!

TRACK LISTING

1.  Bad Memory (4:45)
2.  Let It Go (3:35)
3.  Show The Way (3:46)
4.  Last Chance (4:48)
Eric Champion / Natural (1998) - This was my last release for Essential Records.  I
blended the live elements on the previous Transformation with more keyboards and
electronic elements.  Unfortunately, there was absolutely no marketing for this project
as Essential was in the middle of a buyout.  Therefore, it has gone largely
unappreciated.  There was a video to
Natural and a live video of Higher that appeared
on Vibe Central, a video compilation.

10.  I  Wanna Come Home  (4:41)
Eric Champion / Vibe Central (1998) - This was a remix project for a few of the artists
on Essential Records.  Not only did I remix my own singles from Transformation, I also
remixed two songs for Imagine This.  I remixed they're singles Love and As The Deer.  
There was also a companion video that contained a video to Natural, the first single off
of the next (and last) project on Essential Records, Natural.

Eric Champion / Transformation (1997) - This was my first project on Essential
Records and was produced by Charlie Peacock.  It was a departure from the electronic
accoutrement's of my previous projects.  I hoped that the live more aggressive
approach would open my music up to a new crowd of listeners.  The video for
Dress Me
Up
was nominated for a Dove award for Short Form Video of the Year.  A cover on 7-Ball
magazine and the 'What's Up With Eric' campaign rolled the project out.

Myrrh Records and off of the HSH label.  Produced by Tommy Sims, this project is a
melding of modern pop.  It produced 2 #1 singles on the AC and CHR charts,

enough Christmas spirit for a full album.  Stand out tracks from this project were

Eric Champion / Revolution Time (1991) - This sophomore project fell into obscurity
pretty quickly, however it did garnered another Top 5 (AC) hit with
Always Here.  Also
recorded in Dallas, TX. at Chris Christian's Home Sweet Home studios, it was recorded
at the same time as the
Area Code project (Myrrh) and the B/W project (Warner
Brothers) all of which I produced.  While none of them were very successful, they were
very helpful in my training as a producer.  I learn best from my mistakes.
