Eric Saint Nicholas

Californian Folk Rock & Americana Music

Eric Saint Nicholas is a new folk rock & americana music singer with a fingerpicking acoustic style. His music is intimate - like a note to a friend.

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. Acoustic guitar driven, his easygoing folk rock tunes feel personal - as if written for a friend. Compared to heroes of his like Jack Johnson and Nick Drake, Eric's intent as a musician is described as "meditative and hopeful" by Elmore Magazine, offering "a message of love and unity."

In 2014 Eric relocated to Nashville, Tennessee where he recorded his debut album, American Heartbreak Radio. Since, he has been enjoying the endless inspiration that being in a songwriter’s town affords him. American Heartbreak Radio is a folk rock / americana album that feels like it has one foot planted firmly in the past with another in the near future. It’s both retro and fresh; true to a style of his own.

Early on inspirations (and roots music seekers) like Jack White, and later found kindred spirits like Ray Lamontagne fuel his fire to to express his spirit as it is. 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. Eric's next album is in the works and will be released in 2018.
