Music is the inspirational driving force shaping lives worldwide. A great musical composition does not always need words to have an everlasting impact, for the message can be seen, felt and heard through sound. Take 22 year old musician Eric Stanley, who knows all about inspiring others through his musical talent. With over 15 million+ YouTube views, and 91,000+ YouTube subscribers, Eric is well on his way to achieving his goal of changing lives with his violin.
Born in Chesapeake, VA, Eric grew up in a household surrounded by musicians. What began as an elective in middle school developed into a second nature for Eric. As he entered high school, Eric went on to receive professional training and join the Richmond Youth Symphony Orchestra. Eric is currently studying Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus in Music and Business at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA.
Eric began playing along recorded songs in 2010. The first video he posted on YouTube was a violin cover of “Say Ahh” by Atlantic Recording Artist Trey Songz. This video gained 100,000 views in a day. The overwhelming response motivated him to keep moving forward. With just homemade videos recorded in his dorm room, Eric has reached over 91,000 subscribers and surpassed 15 million total upload views. He
continues to use this social media site to build his brand and has been featured on a number of social media sites such as Perez Hilton.com and WorldStarHipHop.com.

About Lee Coulter
Self. It’s a prefix that usually sends musicians to the bottom of the pile. Self-produced, self-released, self-managed can all be ways of saying no one else cares. Lee Coulter became an exception to the rule in 2011 when his DIY debut album saw three singles reach rotation on Sirius XM’s The Coffee House (who also named him the Discovery of 2011) and major San Diego AAA station, KPRI FM. And more recently opening for musical greats Chuck Berry, Martin Sexton and Jack Tempchin as well as fellow up and comers such as Griffin House and Dawn Mitschele.
In Australia, Coulter started out producing and writing for other artists out of his bedroom, but after he moved from the beaches of Queensland to the coast of California, he tried getting in front of the mic himself and was hooked.
His audiences liked it too and they soon had him playing at top San Diego venues. After releasing his first album, he headed out on the road, touring the US for the next 9 months, playing for audiences from Hawaii to New York City. His song, “Booty Voodoo” became a hit on the Internet after being called “The Song of the Summer” by C.C. Chapman, host of the number 1 podcast on iTunes, Accident Hash. The tour inspired him to make his base in San Diego and build on his momentum. Unfortunately, things don’t always go according to plan and Coulter took a hit with the rest of the economy when live music became a luxury to most.
In February 2011, at the same time finances forced him, his wife and their toddler son out of their Encinitas apartment, Coulter’s socio-political single, “I Would Love”, went national on Sirius XM’s popular songwriter channel, The Coffee House. It was soon joined by “Photograph”, another track from the debut and they both remain on the airwaves today. And then, when KPRI called to tell him they’d added “Booty Voodoo” into rotation as well, he knew he had no choice but to head back into the studio and get back to work. The LP, “Mr Positivity” was released in 2012 followed by a national tour in 2013. Now he is working on his third album set for release in summer 2014 featuring a duet with Dawn Mitschele and a special guest bass appearance from Butterfly Boucher.
Coulter began writing music when he was a teen helping his unemployed single mother raise his younger sisters. For him, it was a mechanism to help lift spirits, a vehicle to be used in the pursuit of happiness – an idea still obvious and necessary in his music today.
