With influences ranging from Mississippi John Hurt and Taj Mahal to progressive musicians like Keb Mo and Charlie Parr, Eric’s music is fundamentally folk and timelessly steeped in some of America’s earliest musical roots. His songs carry a remarkable knack for simplicity and his voice is one you don’t forget.
A Pennsylvania transplant currently based in San Francisco California, Eric is a seasoned songwriter who has performed all throughout California. Playing the resonator guitar with bottleneck slide, the acoustic guitar and clawhammer banjo, Eric has opened for Grammy winning roots, folk and blues giants such as Fantastic Negrito, Guy Davis, and Doug Macleod. His voice was hailed in 2019 by NPR as carrying a “…timeless timbre that sounds well-traveled, self-reflective and pure.”
Eric released his debut folk & country blues record “A Long Way From Home” in 2018. Aiming to capture a natural representation of the music rather than over-thinking the production, the album was recorded in San Francisco in a home studio with the help of a ¼” tape machine. Since it’s release Eric has played intimate listening rooms and house concerts, as well as large Festival Stages to thousands, quickly earning himself a place as a rising songwriter in Northern California.
