A Pandemic Inspired Single: “She’s Older Than Me” by Eric & The Soo

Introducing Eric & The Soo’s pandemic inspired single “She’s Older Than Me”. As described by Gerard Longo of Underground Music Collective, “It’s beautifully-told story, and a testament to the ways that music helps us push through.”

She’s Older Than Me by Eric & The Soo (Available on Spotify, AppleMusic, Tidal, Amazon and Bandcamp)

Eric Brombacher was forced into a fourteen day quarantine during a recent return visit to Toronto. He and his wife moved into an empty apartment with no TV, no internet, and worst of all, no guitar! So Brombacher reached out to his old friend Brad who loaned him a beautiful sixties era Silvertone guitar. Upon handing Eric the guitar, Brad implored, “be gentle with her, she’s older than you.” The line struck a chord, and a new song was born. “She’s Older Than Me” is an ode to a guitar that “helped me through those days of isolation.

Although the band typically likes to record “live off the floor” to capture that special in the moment energy, pandemic related challenges forced a different approach. The song was recorded remotely, piece by piece, in Toronto, Sault Ste. Marie, and North Bay, Canada, and also in Lauchringen, Germany. Band members Eric, Ken, Tim, and Dino each recorded their parts in their respective home studios. Somehow, even with the miles between them, the warmth and musical connection among these four is still felt in this latest offering.
