Senator Whoever – Eric Schwartz | video

Here is a new video from our good buddy, Eric Schwartz, called “Senator Whoever”!  It is a topical commentary on our current political system here in the good old US of A.  Way to go, Eric!  Keep up the good work! Written and performed by Eric Schwartz

Check out his youtube playlist:  Political

We knew Eric when he played around the Village in New York City in the late 90’s and had a blast every time we hung out.  We played a few times opposite each other at The Back Fence, which has long since gone. 🙁  We always appreciated his songwriting and nice, easy stage presence that was more instinct than learned.  We sort of lost touch when he hit the road doing the coffee house circuit but I have kept up through facebook, email, youtube, etc.

It is always with bated breath that we wait for a new release from him.  He does not disappoint with “Senator Whoever”.  The video production quality is amazing and the music production is superb.  And, of course, can’t say enough good about the song.  Such good and timely content and context!  We are always looking forward to the next great release from Eric.  Thanks, Mr Schwartz, for the years of laughs and entertainment!

A few quotes about Eric:

“His humor and talent ring loud and clear.”
  – Dr. Demento

“The Most gifted, irreverent, musically brilliant, beloved, warm presence here at Kerrville and everywhere else.”  
- Peter Yarrow

“Blending politically savvy comedy with music has always been a slippery slope. Eric Schwartz knows just how to meld funny and funky.”  
- Hustler Magazine, March, 2008

“‘Hattie and Mattie’ [as recorded by Holly Near] makes you want to tap dance and fall in love.”
 – Gloria Steinem
