ERIC BOSS: A Modern Love

ERIC BOSS: A Modern LoveWith all the musical projects Eric Boss, a.k.a. E Da Boss (a.k.a E of Myron & E and one half of The Pendletons) has been involved in over the past two decades or so, it comes as something of a surprise to reflect that Eric Cooke has somehow managed to avoid putting out a solo album until 2019.
