This laid-back, summery groove explores the last moments of a relationship that has run its course.

We've covered Eric's music before - his style of Country-Blues leverages a live feel with a nod towards acoustic sounds and organic, toe-tapping rhythm. He is a Pennsylvania transplant currently living in San Francisco with a talent for writing simple, sticky jams that take you back to the earliest roots of American music.

"No More," a bouncy resophonic track with a catchy chorus, comes from "Looking Up," his latest full-length release this year. Eric is a seasoned songwriter who has played all throughout California, with a husky lead vocal that might remind you of Keb' Mo'. This laid-back, summery groove explores the last moments of a relationship that has run its course as Eric Long celebrates the giddy anticipation of a new, uncomplicated life without compromise, and free of regret.

You told me once, you told me twice
Ain't gonna take none of your advice no more

"No More" was recorded live to tape with Oz Fritz (Tom Waits) at Prairie Sun Recording Studio. This song is featured on our Roots Collection playlist.
