EC3 Drops A New Groove On A Rock Classic


EC3 is an internationally renowned drummer and producer who has worked in the music industry for more than three decades. In that time he has worked with some of the biggest names in music and performed as house drummer for The Caesars Palace Orchestra, Harrah’s Reno and Harrah’s Tahoe Orchestras. 

Originally from Naples, Italy and now based in the United States, the multi-talented musician has worked as a bandleader, arranger and musical director at venues around the world. He has shared the stage and studio with legends like Jerry Lewis, Diahann Carroll, Kenny Burrell and dozens more. Since 2013 the prolific producer has released a steady string of solo material and international collaborations.

“Fly Like an Eagle” is the latest single from EC3, available worldwide via all major streaming services. A cover of Steve Miller’s 1976 classic, EC3 and crew transform the iconic psychedelic tune into a funked-up, metal-infused jam. Lead singer Rayshun Lamarr (The Voice, season 14) is excellent, meeting guitarist Jimmy Konsta’s shredding with a killer rock & roll howl, and then matching the soulful tones of backing vocalists Wendy B.,vMycah Chevalier, Troy(Sol) Edler.

In the driver seat is EC3 with a solid backbeat and plenty of syncopated interplay with bassist Adrian (Egg) Norton, pianist Tyrone Jackson and percussionist Dominique Noel. On the one, they drop a high-energy, metal-infused funk-groove. By the last verse the track has kicked into an extended Prince-style rock/funk jam. They even throw in a little vocal shoutout to the Wild Cherry funk classic, “Play That Funky Music.” It’s a lot of fun.

"I grew up listening to this song, and even played it in my high school marching band. I knew I could put a fresh groove on it, and bring it back to life."
