Eric Long

Bio

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 late 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 acoustic greats 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 set to release his next full band record "Looking Up" which was recorded at Prairie Sun Recording Studio with Grammy winning engineer Oz Fritz.
