Wreckless Eric Biography

Eric Goulden, known as Wreckless Eric, is an English rock/new wave singer-songwriter who's known across the globe for his single 'Whole Wide World.'

"One of the greatest songwriters ever to come out of Great Britain" Marc Riley - BBC 6 MUSIC

"Wreckless Eric is a hero to all those of us who love a good kitchen sink drama set to music. Like Ray Davies, Kevin Ayers and Ian Dury, he is a truly great British songwriter" Phil Alexander - MOJO magazine
Wreckless Eric is Eric Goulden. He was given the name to hide behind. After a while he realized he was stuck with it. Onstage he hides behind nothing, he tells the truth with big open chords, lilting enchantment, squalls of feedback, dissonance, bizarre stories and backchat.

Eric began his recording life on Stiff Records in 1977 with his enduring hit 'Whole Wide World' when he was little more than an ex-teenage art student. Eventually he sidestepped the mechanics of stardom to become Britain’s biggest underground household name, much loved and often underestimated.

He shuns the dictates of nostalgia and doesn’t do comebacks for the simple reason that he never went away. His 2015 album ‘amERICa’ reminded those who’ve kept the faith and new generations of fans what he’s all about. He won’t recreate 1978 for you, he’ll blow your mind instead.
