Debuting at 88 on the iTunes top 100 Rap album charts, the Pistol EP released April 6th, 2018 under the Nitrosonic Music label. Written and performed by Eric Pistol Combs, produced by Daniel Gong, and recorded/mixed/mastered by April Edwards.

Eric  “Pistol”  Combs  was  born  Sept  15th,  1990  in  Hazard,  Kentucky.  At  the  age  of  twelve  he developed  a  strong  love  for  music  and  was  heavily  influenced  by  the  hip-hop  genre.  He began to write his own lyrics and practice his craft.  From  2009-2011,  Combs  had  a  short  run  with  a band  called  Highway  80  and  performed  at  local  venues.

The band went their separate ways after two years.  In  October  2017,  after  going  through  a  trying  time  in  his  life,  Eric  Combs  began writing  and  recording  his  first  EP.  He  crossed  paths  with  April  Edwards  at  Nitrosonic  Studio  in Lexington,  KY  who  went  on  to  engineer  Eric’s  “Pistol”  EP.  In  February  2018  the  five  song  EP wrapped  up  production  and  was  released  April  6th  of  2018  under  the  Nitrosonic  label.

The  night it  debuted,  “Pistol”  hit  the  top  100  iTunes  Rap  Album  charts  at  #88.  He’s  seen  immediate success,  including  national  radio  play  of  the  song  “We  Will  Conquer”  from  the  “Pistol”  EP  and live  performances  at several  county  fairs  and  Kentucky  festivals,  opening  for  Colt  Ford  at  the Black  Gold  Festival.  His  second  release  in  September,  “ROOTS”,    had  no  different  trajectory;  it debuted  at  #31  on  the  same  iTunes  chart.
