Little District was founded in late 2007 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Lead singer and songwriter Eric Lockwood and Zac McBee began writing and gigging together almost immediately after meeting. Collaborations and shows with other Charlotte area bands like The Orsons, Attila's Honey, Elonzo and Case Federal & The Agents led to the formation of Milkjug Productions, which served as a catalyst to grow the local music scene and get the bands' music heard. After a brief hiatus in Tennessee, Eric returned to Charlotte, calling on his former Milkjug musicians to round out Little District's sound: Case Federal on keys and John Burns on bass. With the final addition of Rusty Hunter on drums, Eric sought Elonzo's Jeremy Davis to produce and engineer the band's debut album. Recorded in only four days in Davis' living room, it perfectly balances the label of folk rock. It's distinct stop-start style and fiery harmonica licks create an effective energy while the often overlooked keys provide a melodic hook. The lyrics here are well thought out and Eric Lockwood is a masterful storyteller from the opening woes of the homeless drifter with "A Place In The Shade" to the father giving heartfelt advice to his son about what makes "The Measure Of A Man". Since its debut record, the band has evolved and matured into a solid songwriting machine, kicking out a wide range of Americana. Eric now leads his band of friends in their fun and energetic live performances, expertly blending old-fashioned rock and roll, folk style storytelling, barroom blues and country twang.
