Where from, where to?
"...though he may be geographically far from his home, he imbues his work with the easy-going, uplifting spirit of the West Coast."
- Elmore Magazine
Eric’s love for making music began in his hometown of Corona Del Mar on the coast of Southern California. A passion for movies lead him to create and compose with scenes and moods in mind. Acoustic guitar driven, his easygoing folk rock songs feel personal - as if written for a friend. Compared to singer-songwriters like Jack Johnson and Nick Drake, Eric's music is described as "meditative and hopeful" by Elmore Magazine, offering "a message of love and unity."
True to his wandering spirit, he has made a home in places as far as Switzerland, to New York City, to Nashville, Tennessee. With the help of new friends in Nashville, he released his debut album, American Heartbreak Radio, in 2017. Two songs of which are featured in the upcoming feature film The Best People. American Heartbreak Radio is a folk rock / americana album that feels like it has one foot in the past with another in the near future. It’s both retro and fresh - much like his upcoming album, Old-fashioned Sunshine, to be released in 2019.
Early on inspirations like Jack White, and later found kindred spirits like Ray Lamontagne fuel his fire to to write honest lyrics. Pink Floyd carried him away and got him thinking and hearing a little differently. And The Tallest Man on Earth was instrumental in his fingerstyle guitar picking. Since finding a new home in Nashville, he has been enjoying the endless inspiration around him and continues to write and play towards sharing his message.
