Eric Dill (born Eric Murnan Dill, February 10, 1981), is an American singer and songwriter.[1]

Personal life

Dill was born and grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana, United States.[2] He became the lead singer of the pop-rock group The Click Five.[3] In 2006, soon after filming the movie Taking Five with the band, he left Click Five to focus on his solo music career.[4][5] In early 2007, he wrote No Surprise, that was later the first single on Daughtry's sophomore album, Leave This Town.[6] In late 2012, Eric Dill relocated from Hollywood to his native Indianapolis.[7]


In 2012, Dill released his first collection of four songs entitled Wherever You Are.[6] With record producer Matt Radosevich and mastering by Eric Valentine, the sound was created to capture and add the distinct flavour of Dill's delivery of style.[8] Major influences include: U2, Nine Inch Nails, Savage Garden, Our Lady Peace and Thirty Seconds to Mars.[8] The collection was recorded at Barefoot Studios in Los Angeles.[6]

Dill's first full-length album, Forever is Not Enough, was released in November 2012.[9] It featured 13 original songs. The album is a cohesive collection of tunes that are sonically and thematically divergent but combine for a rousing aural adventure.[7] The lyrical content focused around love, heartbreak and life itself, and many of the songs presented an up tempo, poppy-alternative feel.[10]

"War With The Wolves" was the first song released off from the album Forever is Not Enough.[7] The song was listed in the Billboard Top 40 Indicator Chart.[11] "In My Head", another song from the album, was released to radio on 14 January 2013.[7]
