Eric Christian Arjes (born September 1, 1987) is an American singer, songwriter, musician, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer. In addition to being the lead vocalist for the pop rock band Camera Can't Lie, he is also known as a songwriter and producer for his work with Tim McGraw, Thompson Square, Gone West, Lonestar, Newsboys, Audio Adrenaline, and Ryan Hurd.
His songwriting and production have been featured in TV shows The Walking Dead, Teen Wolf, and Finding Carter, as well as advertising campaigns for Walmart, Hersheys, Dr Pepper, Pringles, Lowe's, and Fox Sports.
Arjes and his band, Camera Can't Lie, were discovered by the late Grammy Award-winning producer and mixer Stephen Short, with whom they released a self-titled EP in 2007. After signing with Atlantic Records, the band recorded with producer Ron Aniello and released the Days & Days EP in 2009, followed by the Not Everyone Leaves EP in 2010. The band left Atlantic in 2011 and released their debut full-length album, The Album, in 2012.
Producing and songwriting
Arjes relocated to Nashville, Tennessee in 2011 to focus on producing and songwriting, and in 2013 he signed a publishing deal with Universal Music Publishing Group. In 2018, Arjes signed with Round Hill Music and Jimmy Robbins' JRM Publishing. His songwriting collaborations with Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd include "Last Turn Home", which appeared on Tim McGraw's 2014 album, Sundown Heaven Town, and was the first songwriting cut in country music for Morris. Arjes' songs have been featured on numerous television shows and advertising campaigns, including "Bad Blood," which he co-wrote and performed with The Kills' lead vocalist Alison Mosshart for an episode of The Walking Dead, and "Find My Way Back," which was featured in both Teen Wolf and Jane the Virgin. In 2019, his songwriting, production, and guitar playing were featured on the song "Confetti" by Gone West.
Arjes married Priscilla Berg on July 9, 2010 in Owatonna, Minnesota.
