Through The Haze: Boston’s Eric Dwight asks for forgiveness as he finds the light again on ‘Baby These Are Dark Days’

Born Into Addiction by Eric Dwight

Taken off his highly personally and self-healing thirteen-track debut album that helped him get over the ultimate heartbreak, Eric Dwight bravely tells us the deeply sad story about how his beloved brother tragically died of an overdose and how this pain filtered into his other relationships as he was in so much pain inside on ‘Baby These Are Dark Days‘.

Eric Dwight¬†is a Boston, Massachusetts-based indie-rock singer-songwriter. He has turned the page on the past as he knew it couldn’t continue, as he shares his story to help others who feel stuck inside and need that much-needed inspirational guidance.

Everyone has a sad story to tell. Is mine different? Not these days because everyone is dying from opioids and substance abuse. My brother fell victim in 2014 but I didn’t write a note about it until last year. It was the final piece of the healing timeline for me, For what it’s worth to a casual listener I can say that music helped me finally move on… That’s worth something.” – Eric Dwight

With a catchy tone that is sung so passionately from a man on a mission to redemption, this is a rather remarkable effort that is a song you can’t help but admire. The mellow rock ambiance is a perfect antidote to a time that he wish he had back, as the signs were there but he ignored his gut. He knows who is important in his life now and performs with such a knowing attitude, as he moves on from those moments which could of taken him down too.

Baby These Are Dark Days‘ from the Boston-based indie singer-songwriter Eric Dwight, is one of the more emotional and most important songs you will hear all year. He sends his friends and loved ones an apology here, as he hasn’t been there for them but is back now. This moving song and terrifically created album has helped to open up his eyes again and live life healthily, apologizing is the only thing he can do as losing his brother really had him down for too long.

This is a highly courageous effort from a really honest man, who has turned his pain into a wonderful creative outlet to move on from the hurt. He has finally let go and hopes that they will forgive him for not being present, whilst he dealt with this tragic event that he refuses to define him. Music truly does heal all scars over time.
