March 1, 2018 /NoDepression.com/ --Indie artist, Eddy Mann, has created an intriquing collection of songs on his latest relase 'Simple Things.' The origin of the project can be traced back to a 2015 visit to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It was there that he came upon the works of Philly realist painter Thomas Eakins. Eddy explains, 'As far back as I can remember, paintings have always had the ability to perk-up my creative juices. As a child, whenever my eyes came upon a painting my imagination would flood with story lines within each brushstroke.' On this particular visit, the late nineteenth century works of Eakin's captivated his imagination and brought about the idea for a conceptual album.
