Gaining invaluable experience as a touring/studio musician,eric's first performance as a solo artist was opening for kristen hirsh,formerly of the throwing muses.

Since then, he has performed with such notables as anna nalick, melissa ferrick, erin mckeown, colleen sexton, catie curtis, josh ritter, they might be giants, ben folds, tanya donelly, john wesley harding, howie day, jen chapin and soul coughing lead singer doughty, as well as performing on the local small stage at the 2000 newport folk festival,and the 2001 northampton music festival. nominated for the best male vocalist category in the 2001, 2005, 2006 and 2007 providence phoenix music poll, eric has also performed live radio broadcasts on wbru,wriu,wxin(r.i.),wicn(worcseter,ma.),wers(boston,ma.),wsmu(dartmouth,ma.)and radioboston.com.

A graduate of berklee college of music, eric recorded his debut solo CD,"sound station seven", at the studio of the same name in providence.

Showing influences such as johnny cash, kris kristofferson, graham parsons, bruce springsteen, the beatles, lucinda williams,elvis costello, paul westerberg/the replacements and tom waits, eric wrote and co-produced all sixteen tracks, as well as singing and playing all parts.

Nashville's Catamount Records has included Eric's music on both their HUAC2 and HUAC3 (hot unsigned artists of americana compilations) CD's, featured at the 2003 SXSW and Folk Alliance conferences and the 2004 AMA conference.

Eric hopes to combine the elements of folk, country, blues, rock and roll, gospel, and brit-pop to continue to explore the subject of personal and emotional politics of human life.

Equally important is the hope of connecting to as many people as possible with a message of hope and faith, though often clouded and unsure, with the dark, outsiders stance of his musical heroes.

The more I listen to it....the more I want to listen to it!
I enjoyed Eric's music very much. His blend of folk sounds, blues lyrics, and a rock & roll edge kept me interested song after song. I would recommend this CD to young and old alike. It has something to offer to everyone and I think would be enjoyed by anyone. Andy C.
