Raised in Chicago, Erich “E-TRAIN” Malo has always been known for his obsession with breakdancing, beat-boxing, and party rapping. Growing up with a twin sister classically trained as a dancer and choreographer, E-TRAIN was constantly surrounded by music and dance. Despite his artistic bent, E-TRAIN majored in business but when his mother Roxane Malo tragically passed away during his freshman year, young Erich’s passion for music and art blossomed and he transformed into the artist the world knows today as E-TRAIN.
E-TRAIN writes and produces all his music at his Hollywood Hills studio including the sought-after production licensed by Coca-Cola and Disney. Ole Songs, one of the largest publishers in the industry, inked E-TRAIN’s debut album “Wrath of Roxane” to a worldwide sync and placement contract. (Ole’s portfolio includes such megastars as Timbaland, Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum, Ziggy Marley and Stephen Tyler.) E-TRAIN now has his own record label and two fashion sites – Village Green Style House for women and Highbrow Lowstache for men.
To date, E-TRAIN has shared the stage with many great artists including Psy, Warren G, KRS-One, 9th Wonder, Macklemore, K Flay, Kosha Dillz, Serius Jones, Azad Right, Young General, Scotty The Kid and many more. In addition, he has performed at The House of Blues Sunset Strip, Viper Room, Key Club, On The Rox, Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood, Subterranean, Bardot, Geisha House, Hyde Hollywood, MI-6, Colony, Abbey Pub, SXSW 2012 music festival and more.
E-TRAIN premiered the single “So Good” ft. Molly K from his second album “Imagination Of Mr. Malo” on August 3rd, 2012 during an in-store event at Touch Vinyl and via the official Grammy blog KickKickSnare. The next two singles, “Beauty” and “Dogtown” will be released in mid February. With more shows, music, art, and all types of collaborations under way, 2013 is off to an incredible start!
