Erik Schrody better known by his stage name Everlast, is an Irish-American rapper and singer-songwriter, best known for his hit "What It's Like", and for his genre-crossing mix of rap and acoustic-based rock music. He was the front man for rap group House of Pain until 1996. In 2000, he won a Grammy for best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal with Latin rock musician Carlos Santana performing "Put Your Lights On" on Santana's 1999 album "Supernatural."After his first solo album "Forever Everlasting" (1990) Everlast formed House of Pain with friends DJ Lethal and Danny Boy. Signed to Tommy Boy Records, the group's 1992 eponymous debut album went multi-platinum with the hit single "Jump Around". The group eventually disbanded in 1996, and Everlast once again pursued a solo career.
Everlast's second solo album Whitey Ford Sings the Blues (1998) – was both a commercial and critical success (selling more than 3 million copies). Whitey Ford Sings the Blues was hailed for its blend of rap with acoustic and electric guitars, developed by Everlast together with producers Dante Ross and John Gamble (aka SD50). The album's lead single "What It's Like" proved to be his most popular and successful song, although the follow up single, "Ends", also reached the rock top 10.
Everlast's follow-up album, Eat at Whitey's (2000) was certified gold. The album was also embraced critically, especially by Rolling Stone which reviewed the album between "good" and "great" and focused on it as that month's most important release.
In 2007, Everlast was chosen to do the theme song for the TV show Saving Grace. The song plays during the show's main title sequence, and was released to digital outlets only.
Everlast's 5th solo album, "Love War and the Ghost of Whitey Ford", will be released on September 23rd, 2008 on his own record label Martyr Inc, with distribution by Hickory Records/Sony-ATV Publishing. A first single and video, "Letter Home From The Garden Of Stone", was available for free download from martyr-inc.com in December 2007. The second single, a cover of "Folsom Prison Blues" by Johnny Cash, is to be released soon.

NEW ALBUM "FOOL'S GOLD" JULY 9TH 2013
Good Times & Bad Advice available now on iTunes.
BIG B has been an underground heavyweight (literally) since he first debuted on the scene with 'High Class White Trash' in 2004. However, he made his presence known in the mainstream this past summer when his single "Sinner", which featured Scott Russo from Unwritten Law, exploded in the Alternative Rock radio format and became the anthem for that summer, garnering heavy airplay from the world-famous KROQ amongst others.
Now, BIG B is back with his most well rounded album yet – 'Good Times and Bad Advice' will see this American underdog transcend genres and create a catchy album of outlaw hip hop and alternative rock melodies that will have you singing along all summer!
BIG B has become known for his raw and honest style, likening him to a modern day Johnny Cash yet blending in his own elements, namely hip-hop, alternative rock, country and even a laid-back reggae vibe. 'Good Times and Bad Advice' sees the Las Vegas rebel build upon the success of his smash previous effort 'American Underdog' and touts some of the industry's biggest names as featured artists – Everlast, Cisco Adler (Shwayze, Whitestarr) and another epic pairing with Scott Russo!
Continuing to expand his image to diverse audiences, BIG B has even entered into a partnership with Madison Square Garden to feature the album's title track in the legendary venue's entire summer advertising campaign. BIG B has also been a regular cast member on the A&E hit television series INKED, focusing on his work at the Hart & Huntington Tattoo Company in Las Vegas alongside his friend and freestyle motocross icon Carey Hart. INKED became one of the most viewed television shows in A&E's history and brought BIG B an entirely new fan base.
BIG B has unleashed four previous studio efforts, worked with underground royalty OPM, toured the world alongside icons such as Pennywise, Pepper, Kottonmouth Kings and more AND starred on a hit television show. In 2010, the Suburban Noize Outlaw will continue to expand his career and push musical boundaries while also staying true to his underground roots. With touring already planned alongside groups such as The Expendables, Hed PE and Kottonmouth Kings, BIG B also plans to remain a road dog and bring his high-energy live show to fans across the globe.
The hard-hitting lyricism, anthemic choruses and catchy guitar-infused beats of this record will captivate fans of such diverse artists as Eminem to Sublime and Unwritten Law to Willie Nelson. This fall, make sure you turn to BIG B for plenty of 'Good Times and Bad Advice'!
