Cleveland, Ohio native Eric Nolan’s new solo album, Mood Swing, debuts on July 20, 2014 at the Ariel International Center. Red Carpet takes place at 6:30 p.m., followed by a live music and a meet and greet with Nolan at 7:00. In this much-anticipated release, Nolan showcases his smooth, rich voice—a now long-standing bedrock of The O’Jays—in a style all his own. As a teenager, Eric knew he wanted a career in music. He became a member of the local group The Deltones; before he was twenty. In 1984, Nolan’s talent was recognized by The Temptations, when he became a background vocalist for Dennis Edwards. A few years later Nolan left Cleveland to form his own group in Detroit: E & J consisted of Nolan and songstress Jeanie Lyles. However Eric has always drawn back to his Ohio roots—after a year of singing background vocals for the Father and Son Tour with Eddie and the late Gerald LeVert, Nolan nailed the audition to become a member of the Legendary O’Jays in 1995.
