New York-based musician, composer, producer, editor, journalist, music supervisor and lecturing professor Mike Errico has built his name on the strength of critically acclaimed releases and extensive composition for film and TV. (Fun Fact: He wrote, and sang, the theme song for VH1’s Emmy-nominated hit show, Pop-Up Video.) His independent spirit inspired him to form Tallboy 7, Inc., the company that provides a home for his creative work in both music and prose.
Live, Errico has toured the country for over a decade, playing major festivals and sharing stages with artists including Raul Midon, Jonny Lang, Guster, Soulive, Bob Weir, Amos Lee, Ben Folds, Dido, Warren Zevon, Dan Wilson, Derek Trucks, Trey Anastasio, Rusted Root, Jill Sobule, Duncan Sheik, North Mississippi Allstars, Ari Hest, Longwave, Mark Eitzel, Keller Williams, Jonatha Brooke, Lisa Loeb, Dan Bern, Bob Schneider, Dar Williams, David Poe, Steven Lynch, Paul and Storm, Melissa Ferrick, and many others.
In addition to his music career, Errico was senior online editor of Blender magazine, and a recurring guest on Sirius radio and WNYC (selections of his interviews with top artists and celebrities: http://www.errico.com/about/journalism/). He was also site editor of Spiralfrog.com, the ad-supported free music download site that is credited as a predecessor to present-day streaming radio services like Spotify and Rdio.
In 2013, Errico was a lecturing professor at Yale University, teaching a course he created entitled “The Art and Business of Songwriting.” Guest speakers included Amanda Palmer, Jonathan Coulton, Ryan Miller (Guster), Grammy-winning writer/producer Scott Jacoby, entertainment attorney Bob Donnelly, Mantis Evar (co-founder of Indaba Music), and music technology writer Eliot Van Buskirk (Evolver.fm).
He is presently adjunct professor of songwriting at NYU’s Clive Davis School of Recorded Music, and continues to pursue his wide-ranging career.
