Eric Selby Reveals His 3rd Folk Album \'Dang Fool\' Folk singer/songwriter Eric Selby is a sought-after artist, producer and multi-instrumentalist. After many years behind both the drumkit and mixing board, Eric has finally stepped into the spotlight, releasing his first solo original music in 2020.

Now, Eric has welcomed the much anticipated 3rd full-length record, 'Dang Fool,' which is available on all music platforms.

Eric says he sees 'Dang Fool,' as the final chapter of a three-chapter journey. “The first chapter being my first record, 'Do, Baby.,' and the second being my next release, 'Where You Born At?' It really wasn’t planned or intended to be that way but it has evolved to be the coda on this part of my creative and emotional journey that, for some reason, I needed to communicate.”

'Dang Fool' is a retrospective look at an emotional journey that suggests that it is time to stop looking in the rearview mirror and it is time to start looking forward. "A good representation of this is that although I’ve never recorded a cover on any of my records but I felt that recording my own interpretation of The Beatles’ “Tomorrow Never Knows'' as the last song on this record was an apropos way to finish out this release since the title, alone, suggests hope, mystery and potential," he says.
