Quick Questions

1. Who inspired you to start playing?
Hi I am Eric Gynan guitarist for the band Leaving Eden from Boston Massachusetts USA. It’s a pleasure to chat with you here. As a kid what inspired me to play guitar was first in foremost the love for music. I was playing piano since I could walk, picked up the guitar at a very young age. I just loved music and started to teach myself, I continued to be intrinsically motivated after each stepping stone. Lots of practice for many years.

2. Which piece of equipment couldn’t you live without?
Ha! Great question! I Gotta say my Gibson SG guitars. They are lightweight which allows me to jump around. They are also a staple in rock ‘n’ roll and something I’ve used for many years.

3. What’s your favorite album of the year so far?
Skillet Victorious and we just played a concert with Skillet and Nickleback where we were on the Magic Hat Stage at the bank of New Hampshire pavilion. Was a blast!

4. If you could have a lesson from anyone, alive or dead, who would it be?
Jimmy Hendrix for sure.

5. What is your number one tip for any new player?
Practice A lot!! It gets lonely but it pays off.


Leaving Eden releases new album “The Agony of Affliction” Darkstar Records\Sony.

(Watch the title track official lyric video “The Agony of Affliction below”).

Eric Gynan cofounder of the rock band Leaving Eden says “ We are excited about this new album not only because of the production value but the entire album will also be featured in a new fake reality comedy movie titled “The Nitwit” (Watch official movie teaser below).

Eric Gynan goes on to say, “ Originally I had written this movie script loosely based on real life events with the intention of having Leaving Eden’s music throughout the movie and procuring other pros to make the movie. Where Leaving Eden has been involved with having our music placed in different movies and TV series this simply made sense. While in Iowa after wrapping up on a shoot I sat down with Ray Van Blarcom and Matt Moody (production crew) over a scotch and threw the script down on the table. They started reading it, thought it was hilarious so we decided let’s make the movie. For me being the director of several music videos it was a very simple transition to direct The Nitwit. Finally, I was intrigued by Matt Moody’s experience not only in production but as an actor. Ironically Matt fit the leading role as The Nitwit perfectly and he brought in Jordan Smith as his costar and the rest is history. We expect the movie to be released in 2020”.
