Their brand new album THE ADVENTURE THAT WENT TOO FAR has just been released in 2018. A vaudevillian eclectic 3 piece band from Los Angeles, California whose music is a synthesis of different genres including hip hop, pop, rock, glam, reggae, folk, alternative, and the kitchen sink.

After completely losing his dead dry hair by 17, Eric Winzenried realized at a young age that life has a way of forcing its stereotypical imprint on the soul. Since then, writing and recording music has been a way for him to forget the various bad hairstyles he attempted throughout the 90’s (for instance, the infamous bald guy with pony tail look). He’s had the privilege of working many exciting jobs. From office supplies replenisher to food delivery specialist, from wrangler of the mentally ill to naked guy in plays, all his experiences have influenced the eclectic nature of his music. But it wasn’t until he found himself divorced at 28, displaced, and sharing a tiny studio apartment with giant sized cockroaches that he finally found his voice as a singer-songwriter.

Self-deprecating humor, sarcasm, and their not-so-distant cousin, anger, are a common link throughout their albums HOORAY!! , SWELL, and their brand new release THE ADVENTURE THAT WENT TOO FAR. Songs such as “You Can’t Stay at My Apartment” which deals with the psycho uninvited house guest who never leaves and “Therapy” which tells the charming story of a crystal meth smoking ex-girlfriend are examples of Winzenried’s lyrical style. The music itself is a synthesis of different genres including hip hop, pop, rock, glam, reggae, and alternative. However, they all share the same message: if you are able to laugh at the humorous fragile nature of life, you’ll stop viewing yourself as a victim and take back the controls.

Around L.A., this group of alcoholic misfits are also know as The Hollywood Drunks, especially since the name Winzenried is too hard to spell, pronounce, or even look at without becoming completely exhausted. In hindsight, they realize now that it was a bad name choice but alas they are stuck with it like an old cold sore that never leaves, thus, the entirely not subtle name change to Winzenried aka Hollywood Drunks.
