Cal Ecker, the Nashville-based singer-songwriter who is making waves with his new single ‘I Will Love You’, will release his self-titled debut EP on September 20th. The songs in the five-track set are melancholic but catchy, ranging from the plaintive, soaring hook of ‘I Will Love You’ to the upbeat, tongue-in-cheek ‘Radio’.

The set is rounded out by a re-imagining of Cyndi Lauper’s ‘Time After Time’, which premiered on Huffington Post Friday morning. Cal’s version retains the original’s classic pop sensibility but adds a gritty, 21st century twist. Check out the stream, which also includes ‘I Will Love You’, via his Soundcloud page below.

Cal Ecker is bringing his gravelly voice and heartfelt melodies to the California coast with his new video for ‘I Will Love You’, the first single from the Minnesota native’s self-titled debut EP. Cal describes the track as “a classic love song… about the determination it takes to prove you care about another person.”

The video took just as much determination to shoot: Cal shared that the only access to the beach was down a narrow staircase carved into a steep cliff, and it took several members of the crew to painstakingly carry his piano down to the sand and into the surf.
