Singer-Songwriter Eric Long’s music is fundamentally folk and timelessly steeped in some of America’s earliest musical roots. His songwriting carries a remarkable knack for simplicity, while his finger-style bottleneck slide guitar playing draws strong similarities to Keb Mo, Taj Mahal and Charlie Parr.
In 2019, NPR’s All Songs Considered hailed his voice as carrying a “…timeless timbre that sounds well-traveled, self-reflective and pure.” Following up on his debut Folk & Country Blues record “A Long Way From Home,” released in October of 2018 Eric was brought in as a fan favorite to play 3 coveted slots at the 2019 High Sierra Music Festival.
Originally from York Pennsylvania, and now living in San Francisco, Eric has performed on 3 continents and has opened for the Grammy winning Roots act Fantastic Negrito as was as Doug MacLeod and Guy Davis. Eric has quickly made a name for himself as a rising songwriter in the Northern California Folk scene and is currently working on his 2nd album.
