Some of you reading this biography can relate to Eric. Trying to follow or pursue a dream. You know, that thing or hobby that you are passionate about and hope to turn into a success? Eric’s musical journey started at the age of 17 when he saw the late great Miles Davis in a video later known to him as Tutu Medley. From that point on, Eric has been writing and producing his own material. The music that Eric creates contains all original instrumental songs ranging from Smooth Jazz to Jazz Funk to Underground Jazz using piano or vibes as a lead instrument. The songs that he produces tend to have a Retro or Neo Soul tent to them. When you listen to Eric’s music, you may hear a little bit of Joe Sample, Roy Ayers or Paul Hardcastle. One person referred to his music as cruisin music. Music that you can listen to on a long drive. Eric also has a song called 2 Minute Chase on an album called Groove Axis by The JWB…The James Ward Band.
Tides is a very special song for Eric because it was the first song that he was able to complete after 4 years of writers block. Eric did not name this tune. He played this song over the phone to a friend and that friend named it Tides. The tune Dance Party is a nickname that was given to Eric because he likes to dance even though he lacks rhythm at times…lol.

I am a singer/songwriter based in Ayr, Scotland. I sing in other languages including: Italian, French & Spanish. I was interested in music from a young age – I sang in a choir, at private events and on live broadcast as well as having tried my hand at a number of instruments. Despite years of performing at many, including iternational venues, my career never came in to focus; until recently. I set myself the task of finding a publisher. I found Erik McCall.
Erik McCall (former lead guitarist of EASE) is currently my manager and publisher. With Erik I have created my début single “Tell Me Baby”. It was written by Erik McCall with additional music and lyrics from myself. To date: “Tell Me Baby” is in three languages.
The “Tell Me Baby” line up is:
Salvatore Sgarlata: Lead vocals; keys; songwriter.
Ryan Sutherland-Charlton: Rhythm guitar; bass; drum fills;lead guitar.
Erik McCall: Lead guitar on Demo version; songwriter; keys.
Coming soon there will be lots of songs. The style is a unique mix of rock/pop/jazz. I hope there will always be something for everyone in my music.
