Eric "E-Train" Manning is a composer, songwriter and multi instrumentalist outside Raleigh, NC. Writing and recording his own music is a full time labor of love. Some tunes are instrumentals for use in commercial licensing and some are recorded with his band, The Rusted Rails. Combining blues with a bayou flavor, and funky bluesey/rock with a little Cajun seasoning, Eric's music can add a power punch to your TV shows and stories depicting wild southern lifestyles, crawfish, cooking shows, romantic comedy, lively commercials, and much more.
Acoustic & dobro guitar-driven modern country styled ballad with an edge to it. Moving music with a folksy feeling perfect for petty crime, low lifes on the make, wide landscapes, lonesome cowboys, country rock, TV and Films depicting the great southwest. Nostalgic, yearning and filled with hope. Instrumental, Country Music, Country Rock
Basically the same riff as the acoustic version of Someday, only much faster and with heavy distorted guitar. If the X Games had Extreme Rodeo Riding (as if regular rodeo riding wasn't extreme enough) this would be the theme song. Instrumental, Country Music, Country Rock
This is a bouncy tune, sort of funky/country or bluesy/country. Imagine if Risky Business had taken place in Mississippi, and instead of Tom Cruise dancing in his underwear, it was Larry the Cable Guy instead. This is the tune that would have been playing. Instrumental, Americana Music, Americana Roots
Imagine sailing away to some far off destination. This is what the water, the rigging, the sails and wind sound like. Expansive, exploring music. Adventurous, yet at the same time sweet and swaggeringly mellow. Continuous searching, lost at sea, as in Life of Pi, or simply in a state of wanderlust. Rock Music, Melodic Rock
Fun, nostalgic, down home folks. Rural themes, road shows, buddy movies. Families and kids playing in the yard, backyard cookout BBQ, NASCAR rally, honky tonk bar, tailgate party. Catchy guitars, toe-tapping beat. Campy and great fun, makes you want to shake it and laugh, and have another beer. Instrumental, Americana Music, Americana Roots
Another rockin' Bayou style blues track from the Swamp Doctors. Driving push beat drums with slide guitar and copping rhythm guitars. Perfect for a Southern-style cookout, oh and pass th hot sauce! Blues Music, Delta Blues
A 3/4 acoustic guitar driven Cajun back porch tune with dobro and mandolin. Slow-moving, laidback country music. Super for travel, swamp tale of greed, lust, romance or betrayal. Dark humor romantic comedy, jailhouse blues, chain gang, riverboat gambling, buddy movie road trip, cooking show, culture, Instrumental, Americana Music, Cajun Zydeco
