**The Legend of Eric Heisman and The Formation: **Hey all, I am Eric Heisman. I was born and raised in the good ol' United States and I love traveling. I work at a hardware store here in Texas and in my spare time, I write a song er two. When I roll, I generally hit the road with my buddy George Hanson, we been to Mexico and all over, but you can usually find us in New Orleans come Mardi Gras. George is a lawyer, but he spends most his time d'fendin' poor schlubbs who drink too much, like George, and paradin' without permission. George and I put this little thing together because we love spreadin' good vibes better than peanut butter. And we love peanut butter! The first tune I ever wrote was an epic story called "Swamp". It's a nice joint about what talkin' frogs might say if'n you ever find yourself talkin' to frogs at night. We wrote it in metaphor, of course, since the one thing I don't do is spend a great deal o' time talkin' to frogs at night. Swamp!**
This Formation of ours is just lining up. You are with us at the ground level, so you have quite a nice part in our successes, Thank You all very much. Our history is legendary by now, so grab your favorite party supplies and ease back. Let Eric Heisman and the Formation enhance your listening pleasure with sweet melodies and fun lyrics.
