INFO: Gentleman Auction House initially began as a new musical endeavor for St. Louis native singer/songwriter Eric Enger, but has gradually blossomed into a seven-piece ensemble, providing a sonically saturated accompaniment featuring a variety of instrumental textures - from piano, organ, and auxiliary percussion, to flute, trumpet, and xylophone. Ranging from spirited guitar romps and unrestrained percussive fanfare, to down-tempo introspections and swelling declarations, each song claims its own identity amidst a laundry list of lyrical poignancies.
