"[Erik Hartley's] album 'Roll Out of Bed' is a masterpiece of eclectic styles that complement his soulful voice and well-crafted lyrics. It’s the type of album that’s ready to skyrocket up the Billboard charts, and that is no exaggeration! His voice is stunning to say the least. If girls are crazy about Bruno Mars, then they are going to be head over heels when they listen to Hartley. The heat that radiates off of his sheer charisma could melt the icecaps ... 5/5 stars"

Q: who old where u when u wrote your first song

A: I had been playing piano for a number of years, but I started really trying to write songs a few years after I began playing guitar—back when I was 13. The piano was loud, and in the center of the house, and songwriting has always been a private thing for me. Unlike the piano, I could take my guitar somewhere away from prying ears, and really let my emotions out. My first few songs were nothing special, but one of my favorites, Blue Whiskey, was written in my senior year of highschool.
