Unleashed from an artist uprising in a NYC Theater Loft at the beginning of the millennium, a voice from a movement grew. Energized by the vibrations of Harlem and the rhythms of the Boogie Down, a concept of a groove developed. Influenced by Motown’s preachers and 60’s musical prophets, poet and songsmith,
Eric DeArmon, embarks on a journey, both musical and spiritual, to find a purpose and a sound. Hands blessed with the blues, electrified by a Wurlitzer piano, with a voice that screams and howls with the passion of a revolution and the tenderness of a lovers kiss, Eric defines purpose in songs of truth and celebration. With a transcendent vision and an inspired sound of deep soul he leads a band of true seekers…

After completing their homespun debut album Super Cool, recorded in Eric’s Bronx apartment, aka his brother Maximilian’s recording studio The Dugout, named for its closeness to Yankee Stadium, The Truthseekers’ 9-piece blues and funk machine hit the downtown scene, routinely packing Saturday nights at well known East Village hotspot, The Living Room.  They quickly became a favorite, recognized for their rich soul, tight rhythm section, solid horns, classic gospel harmonies, signature Wurlitzer grooves and rootsy, good-time feel.  When THE TRUTHSEEKERS take the stage the energy starts jumping, people start dancing and if the room isn’t full at the start, it is packed deep by the end.  The band is having fun and audiences share in the celebration and underlying messages of truth.  Listeners are hooked and become fast fans and followers, singing those catchy melodies and repeating the lyrics like a mantra all week long.  From the first rehearsal there was a sense of excitement and playfulness among the group, a big-hearted connection between the members and an altruistic attitude.  THE TRUTHSEEKERS’ message of truth and compassion is clear in their practice as benevolent do-gooders contributing thru live concerts from D.C. Peace Rally to Bluestockings radical Bookstore Benefit with Ani DiFranco, an Eco-village Festival to support sustainability in the Hudson River Valley with Pete Seeger and most recently a free concert at Asia Society and Museum, on the Upper East Side, to benefit our Japanese brothers and sisters, victims of Japan’s Earthquake and Tsunami with video and photographic artist Mariko Mori.  Now they release their second full-length album, Meet Me, recorded at Engine Room Audio in the financial district, captured on two-inch analogue tape preserving the warmth and vibe of every drop of sweat that went into creating the album.  Mixed and mastered in the same spirit to keep the original feel and concept of the full band in one room, playing music the way it should be played… together.  After the rock-n-soul of their first album, Meet Me expands the group’s sound while still keeping to the rich soul idiom standard fans have come to expect with nine new infectious tunes imbued with powerful songwriting.  Meet Me adds slamming horn sections, more Gospel infused vocals, African Djembe and percussion and plenty of warm vintage Wurlitzer blues, while introducing a fresh spirited ritual to the mix with Tabla, Indian Raga and Native American Flute.
