Eric Margan & The Red Lions

Eric Margan began formal musical training on the flute at an early age, and shortly thereafter began experimenting musically on the guitar, piano, and bass on his own time and in his own way. At fourteen he formed his first band – a three-piece rock group in which he was co-songwriter, bassist, and singer. Margan also played bass in a number of jazz ensembles and combos throughout his high school years until he entered the College of Saint Rose on full-scholarship majoring in Music Industry. It was then and there he focused on his passion of songwriting and recording, but he also earned top academic honors, studied and mastered the double bass, continued playing the flute, the bass guitar, the piano, singing, and playing in bands. His time spent on the double-bass performing in classical chamber orchestras and chamber ensembles, became for Margan part of the sound construction that would become uniquely his niche: the indie-chamber rock sound. A master of orchestration and a gifted writer of poetry, Margan is now writing sophisticated and engaging songs, orchestrating each with a unique combination of sounds, and breathing life into each with his inspired and sensitive lyrics. But the centerpiece of all his music is Margan’s talented band, The Red Lions, for which he is the frontman; Margan often quotes Duke Ellington, “My orchestra is my instrument.
