We had the good fortune of connecting with Eric Scullin and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Eric, what do you think makes you most happy? Why?
Creating and sharing music, and helping others to realize their music as well, both onstage and in the studio. I enjoy every aspect of the process from the original songwriting session through production to building the live show and performing.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I enjoy that I get to approach music making from inception of the songwriting idea all the way through to live performance. Whether it’s my own music with Dysplay or when I’m working with other artists, my role varies from in studio to onstage, so it’s nice to have that variety. Every project is a little different. Music, as with any art, is not an easy endeavor but the reward upon finishing a record or performing a cathartic live show can be immense.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’d want to pay homage to the behind the scenes producers and engineers who allowed our musical heroes to make their best art. The Tony Visconti’s, Steve Albini’s, Johns Brothers of the world.
