**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!**
