Saxophonist, composer and recording artist Eric is an exciting and creative soloist who specializes in finding a groove and building on the energy of the song. His roots are grounded in the traditions of jazz, but his style reaches into more modern genres such as funk, R&B, and hip hop. Originally from Akron Ohio, Eric spent the first ten years of his musical career playing in jazz and show bands around the Midwest. He ended up on some well known stages including Nighttown, the House of Blues, the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame and Severance Hall. In January 2006 Eric released his full length album entitles "Say," which featured seven original compositions and two arrangements of American classics.
After relocating to Southern California Eric has spent the past few years expanding his musical career into new territory. He now performs through Los Angeles with numerous bands: Big Whiskey (a Dave Matthews Tribute Band), Sugah Daddy (a zoot suit wearing swing and Blues act), and the New FBI (a Chicago/Tower of Power cover band).
Eric also continues to write his own compositions as well as write and arrange for other artists.
