about

Eric's first album is a blend of world ("Dussavu Dueni", "Timeless") and modern rock music ("Hold On", "I'm An Immigrant") that reflect his passion for music. His use of world instruments and world beats delivers fresh sounds to the ears and goes in an unusual directions for a world music artist. Eric's lyrics are a message of trials overcome and the joys that follow.

This album is yet another great addition to the Mad Ducks roster. It has contributions from Mad Ducks veterans such as Xavier Chasseuil on acoustic guitar ("We Will Meet Again") and Terrance Ballard is there to add the back beat with his magic touch on hand percussion and drums. Anne Coumont adds cello to "From The Dawn Of Age" and Cédric Theys is here on bass, guitars and keys.

This album lives up to its name, Continuum. It extends in the past, the present and the future! This album will be set to loop mode on your CD or mp3 players!

Track Name: From The Dawn Of Age
Guide my path indeed
When your strength I need
Reaching deep

Guide me, yes to soar
Open all the doors
Heal my soul

Many souls in pain
feeling hurt again
But Joy here will rise again

Nothing is in vain
Not in vain

I have arrived
To come warn you
Time is running out
Time to fix it.
Many souls in pain
feeling hurt again
Nothing is in vain
Nothing in vain

From the dawn of life
A treasure was given
To all lives on earth a treasure
Just given

Until one night
Greed in a path of fury
Came and destroyed

People yes uphold
Who would kill the Dove
Who could have told
That greed would be so bold
Greed would be so cold
Be so cold

Guide my path indeed
When your strength I need
Reaching deep

Guide me, yes to soar
Open all the doors
Heal my soul

I have arrived
To come to warn you
Time is running out
Time to fix it.
Many souls in pain
feeling hurt again
Nothing is in vain
Nothing in vain

Guide my path indeed
When your strength I need
Find some sleep

Guide me, yes to soar
Open all the doors
Heal my soul...
All that was so pretty
Track Name: Hold On
Snakes eyeing me
Snake eyes on me
Burning her last one
Before it’s time to roll

Ain’t no coming back
Ain’t no rolling back
Gotta keep going on
That one show must go on
Yeah

I say hold on
Come on
No time to rot in hell
Hold on
Go on
Peace is outta here
Yeah

This ain’t my damn day
Better not cross my way
Got my lighter on
Gas all over the place
Yeah

I hit a stroll
Gotta to roll
Out of control I am
There’s something going on yeah

I say hold on
Come on
No time to rot in hell
Hold on
Go on
Peace is outta here
Yeah

Snakes eyeing me
Snake eyes on me

Ain’t no coming back
Ain’t no rolling back

This is my damn day
Better not cross my way

I hear the stroll
Gotta to roll
Track Name: A Walk Nobody Knows
A walk nobody knows, but only can feel in here...
Don't you reach beyond the timeless call of love
A walk nobody knows
And that only time would tell

Last time I saw you a while ago
I can remember all at once
Felt like a crazy rushing feeling yes

Our ways have parted
Even so during that journey all along
Felt like I carried all the craziness

We would laugh and cry
Having been away
But we will always seek tomorrow

You say you bow to nobody
But the peaceful bliss in the air
You use to make things exciting
No matter what's going on...

Last time I saw you a while ago
I can remember all at once
Felt like a crazy rushing feeling yes

Looking at you today old friend
I cannot help but to look for
What made us... oh life

We would laugh and cry
Having been away
But we will always seek tomorrow

Last time I saw you a while ago
I can remember all at once
Felt like a crazy rushing feeling yes

Next time I see you
I really hope
You'll remember what being alive feels like

You say you bow to nobody
But the peaceful bliss in the air
You use to make things exciting
No matter what's going on...

We would laugh and cry
Having been away
But we will always seek tomorrow

A walk nobody knows, but only can feel in here...
Don't you reach beyond the timeless call of love
A walk nobody knows
And that only time would tell
Track Name: I'm An Immigrant
I’m an immigrant
I know you've heard of me
Sometimes you fearing me
Denying me, questioning me

I came from far away
Ready to work my way
And still hope anyway
That one day I will find a way

I’m an immigrant

Carrying Love in me
For the ones long gone
Left behind but still engraved in me
I’m an immigrant

Away from everything
So close to nothing
I have much love inside
And yes some fears indeed I have

I am an Immigrant

Walking in many places
Encountering all the races
Being called many names
Thinking that I am insane

Despite the hate I stand
For love I understand
Exists in all the races
Hand in Hand In many places

Yes I’m an immigrant
Track Name: Not Afraid
I am not afraid
Not anymore
Cause I’m surrounded
With joy and more

I am afraid
I am not alone
But never mind
Please come and join me
Track Name: I'm A Daddy
I often wonder how you would look like
While casting my prayers to the moonlight
My answers came rushing into these eyes

When I saw those small fingers
Reaching for the light
Or even those tiny toes
Wanting to be sighted
My answers came rushing into these eyes

Oh my love,
Amazing
All I could think
Oh oh joy,
I am a daddy yeah

I prayed
To the moon, and the stars in motion
From the depths of the ocean my love
Nothing else I could ever say

Oh my love,
Amazing
All I could think
Oh oh joy,
I am a daddy yeah

Oh amazing
Oh I am a daddy yeah

Was it that first kiss I laid
on your forehead
or when you squeezed really tight
with your little hands
My answers came rushing into these eyes

Oh my love,
Amazing
All I could think
Oh oh joy,
I am a daddy yeah

I prayed
To the moon, and the stars in motion
From the depths of the ocean my love
Nothing else I could ever say

I often wonder how you would look like
While casting my prayers to the moonlight
Track Name: Redemption
Coming back to you
Was not just that easy
I tried and failed
Just felt so uneasy
Building huge walls
Away from the light
Of desperation

Touching at last
The shinny light astray
Got me seeing things
On this brand new day
Kneeling down
I was seeking
Redemption, redemption, yeah

I haven’t been far
Without you in my life
Finding my way back
Was the easy part
Down on my knees
I was asking for
Redemption

Running away
Has been in vain
For far away from you
I found nothing but pain
You welcomed back
Offering me redemption, redemption

I was walking barefoot
In total darkness
Walking a path
Made of crushed glass
Till pain was no more
But just another feeling of desperation

Deaf to your voice
Blind to your sight
Cold to your love
In need of redemption

I haven’t been far
Without you in my life
Finding my way back
Was the easy part
Loving you back
Was so hard
Without redemption

Running away
Has been in vain
For far away from you
I found nothing but pain
You welcomed back
Offering me redemption, redemption.

Deaf to your voice
Blind to your sight
Cold to your love
Loving you back
Was so hard
Without redemption
