"I could not be more proud or excited about the release of this video. It really is a small film, the way they used to make videos. It's so much easier to do a faux live performance or an in-the-studio video, but this has a story line and is visually stunning. Working with director Allen Farst over the past 25 years and watching him grow as a film maker is pretty cool to say the least. I'm certain he feels the same for me, or he wouldn't be all in on this project. Enjoy!"
"How cool is this, the world's greatest Bordeaux producer, Chateau Haut-Brion and everything that comes with it has decided to jump on board to support the release of my new record "Occupied". The wines of Clarendelle, inspired by Haut-Brion are extraordinary; I couldn't be happier. Please don't expect me to buy you a glass of Haut Brion or La Mission Haut Brion (100 Pt wines in 2015), but Clarendelle white, rose, or red.... perhaps if you catch me on the right evening. See you on the road." E
Stella Artois is one of the oldest brands in the world, first appearing in 1336. Today, Stella Artois is the best selling beer imported from Belgium and one of the fastest-growing beers sold in the United States.
“I’m very proud to represent Stella Artois on tour and very excited about all of the possibilities going forward this year with my new album “Occupied”coming out. While I certainly hope to have the opportunity to sit down and buy everyone a “Stella” in the near future, I didn’t want to miss the chance to share this news. I look forward to seeing everyone at a show this year!”
ABOUT Stella Artois
• Barrels shipped in 2018: 2.7 million
Stella Artois is one of the oldest beers available in America, as its roots stretch back about three centuries to Leuven, Belgium. Just recently, it has become one of the fastest-growing beers in the U.S. Its shipments have grown by more than 10 percent from 2016 to 2017, one of the biggest growths of any major beer.
There is no doubt that “Occupied,” Eric Jerardi’s eighth national release is a tour de force. Recorded in Sheffield, Alabama with the legendary Muscle Shoals rhythm section [Aretha Franklin, Rolling Stones, Bob Seger, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Glenn Frey, Bob Dylan, and more], Eric has created a musical masterpiece combining heartfelt performances with the soul of the Muscle Shoals horns, backing vocals, and the world’s greatest rhythm section. With a solid reputation as an exceptional guitar player, executive producer Allen Farst (Niche) and Legendary producer/engineer David Z [Prince, Fine Young Cannibals, Johnny Lang, Etta James] were instrumental in encouraging Eric as a gifted songwriter and more importantly as a vocalist and the results are undeniable. “Occupied” has officially put all others on notice that Eric Jerardi has come into his own.
