New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Rock Ridge Music) Pittsburgh, PA and Youngstown, OH-based pop-rock band JD Eicher & the Goodnights have signed a management deal with Newark, NJ-based Rock Ridge Music. The band joins other management clients such as Tony Lucca, Brendan James, Todd Carey, and Matt Duke on the Rock Ridge Music roster.

Says Eicher of the new partnership: "We're really excited to be signing on with such a great management team! Working with RRM will mean more opportunities for the band and more time to focus on the music."

Says Rock Ridge Music CEO Tom Derr about the signing: "The band has laid an excellent foundation. Now we begin the next level together."

JD Eicher & the Goodnights have had a very busy summer touring in support of their sophomore release, Shifting (which came out in 2011), performing at a number of festivals and in an opening slot for the Dave Matthews Band. Virgin America Airlines used the band's song "Level Out" in the teaser for the airline's upcoming movie, "Departure Date." (

Forging their diverse musical backgrounds, JD Eicher (vocals/guitar), Ben Portz (keys), Jim Merhaut (bass), and Ryan Kirk (drums/percussion) combine seasoned songwriting, rich vocals, melodic arrangements, and emphatic delivery to establish their own brand of subtle pop; they were named one of the top 10 unsigned bands of the year in 2011 by Alternative Addiction. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette said Shifting has "the light, poppy quality of British bands Keane or The Script... but with more detail in the songwriting," while the Uniontown, PA Herald-Standard praised their "mainstream likability that is both charming and contagious." Pittsburgh City Paper says of the band's music: "A kind of gentle innocence pervades, as if not trying to grab you as it passes by, but hoping you'll be touched." The Erie Times-News praises JD Eicher & the Goodnights' "big, open-hearted pop songs with the type of expansive, reach-for-the-sky ambition that graces albums by Coldplay, the Killers and Death Cab for Cutie, among others."

In addition to the aforementioned Dave Matthews Band, JD Eicher & the Goodnights have shared stages with Coldplay, Hot Chelle Rae, Pete Yorn, Anberlin, Rod Stewart, Bryan Adams, Cartel, Matt White, and many more. Upcoming tour dates are listed below; a JD Eicher solo acoustic tour run with Todd Carey is planned for December (all confirmed dates are listed, and more will likely be added with Todd Carey).
