When we reviewed “PAIN BY NUMBERS”, The New Album by Eric McFadden, we found it to be a masterful collection or power-plays, each song in itself is wild and engaging, but together the album as a whole is a blast, and beyond description.
Now, with the release of his latest video “While you Was Gone”, we have been “one upped”, the video packs so much power into a few brief moments, one would want it to loop over and over just so you can experience the rush forever.
The power of the Blues / Rock Fusion is strong with this artist, Filmed, Directed and edited by Amethyst Street media, Co-directed by Greer Sinclair and Starring Eric McFadden and Greer Sinclair, it is, in itself a video homage to the greats that inspired his work and it is a dark tale of dramatic proportions.
