Yesterday, I received an email about this new Milwaukee group formed by Ryan Weber of Decibully and Eric Osterman. The name of the group is Eric & Magill. The name of the record is "All Those I Know". The origins of this project started when Ryan was in Armenia volunteering as a an instructor of audio design. He started to bounce ideas with friend and former Camden guitarist Eric Osterman.
