"Unfortunately you have to go through some things to be free", says Memphis born Eric Gales. "Now, I feel the most free I've ever been
in life, even more so than when I was a kid", he opens up. "You gotta help yourself man, once you can help yourself you can genuinely
help someone else."
The title of his new album Middle of the Road was released on February 24 2017 and is the running theme throughout the record. "It's
about being fully focussed and centred in the middle of the road. If you're on the wrong side and in the gravel you're not too good and
if you're on the median strip that's not too good either, so being in the middle of the road is the best place to be."
Middle of the Road is Eric Gales fourth album on Provogue/Mascot label Group (Joe Bonamassa, Beth Hart, Black Stone Cherry, Warren
Haynes, The Robert Cray Band, Robben Ford, Eric Johnson, The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band) after Transformation (2011), Relentless
(2010) and The Psychedelic Underground (2007) and it sees him at his most expressive yet; it is a deeply personal and reflective record
that echoes where he is in his life right now and he opens himself up and allows himself the chance to really flourish.
It's well documented that Gales was a child prodigy and heralded as the second coming of Jimi Hendrix when he released his debut
album The Eric Gales Band in 1991 as a 16 year old on Elektra Records. It was the first of 10 albums on a major label through a blistering
career. He has released 14 studio albums in total ahead of Middle of the Road and a host of other collaborations, one of which led him
to work with producer Fabrizio Grossi (Alice Cooper, Joe Bonamassa, Billy F. Gibbons, Ice T, Leslie West, Slash, Walter Trout, Steve
Lukather, Steve Vai, Paul Stanley, Supersonic Blues Machine).
Talking about working with Eric, Fabrizio Grossi offers; "I've been a fan of Eric since I first worked with him 15 years ago on a project
with George Clinton & the P.Funk. His tone and his playing was wicked. Personally and musically Eric grew into a ‘monster' , a really
good one and he's set on a path of huge success with a ‘taking no prisoners' type of attitude! I know a very few musicians with such a
musicality and Eric is right there a head of the bunch. I hope fans will dig. There's lots of love, tears, sweat and "truth"
