SCOTT GRIMES - Sunset Blvd. (2005) EP

Scott Grimes is a well-known actor, you can see him in Critters as a young kid, and recently in Band of Brothers, ER, American Dad!
But his true passion is to sing and play the piano.
While the acting does not leave much time to the music, he has composed and recorded great number of songs, mainly with his friend and songwriter Dave Harris.
15 of them were part of "Livin' On 'The Run", his 2nd album, released in 2005.
This is a single-track promo EP.
Opens with "Sunset Blvd" (which arrived 18 in the U.S. Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary Rank) and "Livin' On The Run" (which reached # 33).
Both are precious melodic rock gems, great songwriting and beautiful lyrics. Very good songs.
"Summerthing" and "Without You" are another two to appeal, with nice vocals, simple and melodic.
Promo only EP, never released officially.
Highly Recommended.
