HOUSE OF ALL SEASONS - Eric Nyberg: vocals, guitars, bass, piano, keyboard, orchestration and programming.
HOUSE OF ALL SEASONS is a dynamic, eclectic and lovingly crafted music project by Boston area songwriter Eric Nyberg. It is inspired by such varied artists as The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Radiohead, Elton John and many other classic and contemporary artists. Nyberg was born with a love for music, in fact it's in his DNA. His grandmother was a piano teacher in the Boston suburbs for many years and his uncle went to the famed Juilliard School where he studied trumpet.
Eric Nyberg formed HOUSE OF ALL SEASONS in the fall of 2011 and released it's first EP "Corners" in 2012, followed by a second EP "Opening Scenes" in 2013. The self titled debut album was released in November 2016 and mastered at Abbey Road Studios by Simon Gibson who won a Grammy in 2009 for helping remaster The Beatles catalog. "I never in a million years thought I would have an album worked on at Abbey Road, let alone by someone involved with The Beatles, it is probably the highest honor of my life" says Nyberg.
The self titled HOUSE OF ALL SEASONS was conceived from the get go to have three distinct flavors. Nyberg wrote all the music and all the lyrics. The first few songs show the blues and rock influence on Nyberg's music, the middle songs show the singer songwriter and the end shows the psychedelic influence of The Beatles, Radiohead and Pink Floyd. "I'm a devoted music lover" Nyberg continues "I love many types of music. I can go from listening to Robert Johnson to the Righteous Brothers to Metallica and then Beethoven without any lack of enthusiasm. You can expect many different types of songs from me but within a framework that makes them relate to each other. The Beatles White Album, Elton John's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road and the Stones' "Exile on Main Street" showed me how to make an album with multiple musical styles work."
Recording sessions for HOUSE OF ALL SEASONS began in April 2016 and work was completed in August 2016. Everything except for the drums on the first two songs was recorded and performed in Nyberg's bedroom. Jake Burton, a session drummer and teacher from Nashville who has played with such well known acts as The Gin Blossoms and Leon Russel played drums on "Simmer Down and Axe Fall Blues".
Nyberg is ambitious but modestly so "I love music and I want it to be my life but not in the rock star, world famous icon sense. I love blending tones, creating imagery with the words and music, the production, I geek out on that stuff. I'm devoted to the craft. There isn't a greater communicator in all the world than music and I'm thankful to God for the gift and the opportunity to share it.
