Eric Townsend

Eric W. Townsend (born February 4, 1974) is an American musician and record producer best known for his work with music and video releases by Daniel Amos, The 77s, The Swirling Eddies and The Lost Dogs, through the record labels Stunt Records and Fools of the World.

Townsend grew up in Wentzville, Missouri, not far from the home of rock and roll legend Chuck Berry. Townsend's great uncle was author Ira Jones, former sergeant of singer Elvis Presley.

In 1996, Townsend with brother Jason Townsend started publishing the underground "Giovanni Audiori Catalog," named in tribute of the late songwriter Mark Heard whom sometimes used the name Giovanni Audiori. The catalog was used primarily by record collectors, and independent record labels like Heard's Fingerprint Records, Larry Norman's Solid Rock Records, Daniel Amos' Stunt Records as well as music stores to advertise their merchandise, which - in the cases of independent or fan club releases - often didn't receive a lot of attention in the regular media. The catalog also became the primary source of promotion for a number of very limited edition releases, including a CD of Heard's earliest LP, "Setting Yesterday Free." The catalog also included in-depth discographies from a variety of artists and even the occasional "readers" interview, in which the readers of the catalog themselves were able to submit questions which were then given to a musician to answer. Many musical artists also contributed to running columns, such as a "top 10 records of all time" series which featured top 10 lists from musicians like Gene Eugene and Jon Knox of Adam Again, Mike Roe and Mark Harmon of The 77s, Ashley Cleveland, Phil Madeira, Randy Stonehill, This Train, Rob Watson, Brian Healy, David Raven, Mitch McVicker, Jimmy Abegg, Mike Stand, John Fischer and others. Comedian David Brenner also contributed an unusual comment or two to the catalog. The name of the catalog was later changed to the simpler "Audiori's Catalog" before finally coming to an end in 1999.

That same year, the Townsends began to work more closely with Stunt Records and, later, The 77s' Fools of the World label. In the years that followed, Townsend contributed to numerous Stunt and Fools of the World releases with work in the areas of photography, audio restoration and editing, video editing, graphic design and layout, and more. In 2007, both Townsends were mentioned by name in a song by The Swirling Eddies, "A Medley of our Hit," from the album The midget, the speck and the molecule.

Townsend currently lives near St. Louis, Missouri.
