EO The Mechanic (born Eric Ortega was) born and raised on the south side of Houston, Tx Hiram Clarke to be exact. Things were rough growing up there but EO had to do whatever he had to do to provide for his family helping out around his uncles body shop for $100 a week.
Passing the time EO The MEchanic would plug in his headphones and listen to SPM & Dope House Music and that led to him picking up sounds from Trae tha Truth, SUC & Bone Thugs & Harmony. Always honing his craft EO worked hard to develop his own sound and pushed his music independently with the help of social media.
Now working with EZ Access (Trae tha Truth’s road manager) EO has become “EO the Mechanic”. Taking label meetings and having distribution companies calling about his next project. EO finished his first tour and is currently on another one right now and set to release his debut mixtape Wrench Life Volume 1 on May 5, 2017 for Cinco De Mayo.
