Eric Leland Band
Eric grew up in writing and playing in bands with his brother Adam, and later as part of The Luxury Kings, but was never the singer. In 2012, Eric recorded his solo debut EP “Track And Field”, covering a wide range of roots music styles from surf to blues, to Americana to country. In 2016 the follow-up, “When My Train Is Gone” EP, merged these influences into a cohesive Americana style and sound. Eric wrote all of the songs, played all of the instruments, vocals and harmonies, as well as recording and mixing these tracks. These sessions are combined on the “When My Train Is Gone” LP available for streaming from all services. Truely a solo project. Now he needed a band…
The Band: Eric Leland (vocal, guitar & bass), Rich DeLuca (drums, vocals), Ed Rogers (guitar)
The Sound: Original music from Eric’s records plus some of our favorites: Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Cracker, Soul Asylum, Gin Blossoms, The Who, Smithereens and more.

Music Video For “I’ll Get The Next One” (A Brothers Leland song that The Eric Leland Band frequently plays)
Eric and Adam Leland have been performing, writing and recording together since they were teenagers. From The Stonesouls, The Adam Leland Band, Rollin’ Machine, Rocksploitation, The Stoneberrys, The Kings Of Queens and most recently Eric Leland solo debut, where Adam stepped in to help complete several songs. In 2019, Eric and Adam began to build a catalog of songs for their fictitious band, Brothers Leland, with no plans to play shows or field a “real” band. Starting with the “If You See Something, Say Something” EP, and soon after the “Jet Fuel Formula” and “Two For The Ripsaw” LPs, the brothers and a few of their musical pals built rock and roll records about…rock and roll.
There has been exactly ONE Brothers Leland performance (an MTV Unplugged style CD release party in 2022) however Eric and Adam play these songs in their shows and on occasion together.
