Grounded in a firm belief that pop music and intellectual lyrics are not mutually exclusive, Briar Rabbit coined the phrase “thought-pop” to describe his sound. “A lot of times [pop music] feels like an idea that someone didn’t believe you were capable of chewing and mushed it to baby food. For me, the chewing is essential.” With his suspenders and classic style, it’s easy to imagine Briar Rabbit on a stage decades ago crooning away. He is not only a musician, but also a storyteller, writing his lyrics with the intentions of having them processed by listeners and creating a dialogue with his fans. While his “thought-pop” is captivating, Briar Rabbit wants listeners to really respond to the lyrics which he carefully crafts like a story, just as his namesake would insinuate. "There is music I like that is not necessarily current but which is still relevant,” says Grammy Award winning producer Malcolm Burn, who has worked with Bob Dylan, Iggy Pop and Daniel Lanois, among others. “I hear something in Eric’s music that relates to ‘80s bands that I was excited about who had a lot of passion and enthusiasm to their music.” Eric Stepanian’s Goodnight Scarlett, produced by Malcolm Burn, fits that narrative of music, which is relevant, immediate and powerful. Shorthand? Goodnight Scarlett is timeless, pure, American rock music, influenced by Stepanian’s twin heroes of Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan, tempered by ‘70s AM radio fare and personalized by the singer-songwriter’s unique history.
