ABOUT

Multi instrumentalist Eric Long comes from the rare breed of singers whose voices you simply do not forget. His delivery is filled with the same characteristic conviction as artists like Joe Cocker and The Who’s Roger Daltrey, bringing refreshingly classic male soul and blues lines to a progressive Americana sound. Armed with two guitars, one of which is used for rootsy slide numbers, banjo, harmonica and the occasional dobro, Eric fills out his sound with a constant foot tapping that is characteristic in early country blues recordings.

A Pennsylvania transplant currently living in San Francisco California, Eric is a seasoned songwriter with a remarkable knack for simplicity. He’s played all throughout the Bay Area with multiple groups including the roots blues and rock n’ roll trio Hot Diggity Damn which has played many of San Francisco’s top venues.

With influences ranging from Mississippi John Hurt and John Fahey to progressive musicians like Jack White, Eric’s music is both fundamentally folk music, and also timelessly steeped in some of America’s earliest musical roots. Eric is now performing as a solo musician with an instantly lovable one-man band feel.

MUSIC

Carousel Cover 1425 x 1425

In 2015, Eric reached back to his East Coast roots assembling the cast of musicians that appear on his debut album release of ‘Carousel.” The Soul and Bones Band has always been more of a studio incarnation than a touring act, so when it was time to put the album together, he chose many of the musicians he worked with growing up in York County, Pennsylvania. With members from bands like Killer Bangs, Cold Fronts, American Babies, and Ruby the Hatchet, the album became a culmination of high caliber musicianship all around.

As Eric himself puts it, “Carousel is a collection of songs that I played for years. These are songs that constantly evolved, and reshaped, and eventually with the help of a diverse group of musicians from my past, finally got recorded in a friendly environment in a warehouse in a pretty cutty part of Philadelphia with some of my favorite people in the world.”

Eric is currently writing and plans on releasing a bare-bones, roots and Americana album in the very new future.
