Coming Up For Air is a Dayton based alternative rock band whose songs are made up of solid rhythms, strong leads, and inspired lyricism. The band began as a pseudonym for Eric Ballein’s acoustic work but with the addition of drums, lead guitar, and now bass guitar, the project has now evolved into a project unlike anything that had been initially conceived. Delving into both personal and societal themes, Between the Party Lines is the band’s debut album released this past April and available on all major streaming and digital retailers.
