Growing up in Kentucky, Eric was the child of a father who was a pastor and a mother who
is a lauded music teacher. Eric has been performing since he was a teen and writing since he was just twelve.
Some of Eric's biggest influences include R.E.M., Tom Petty, Over the Rhine, Sixpence None the Richer, Simon and Garfunkel, U2, and Ryan Adams.
Never satisfied sounding like anyone else, Eric strives to be an original and veer away from the ordinary. This is reflected in the wide array of artists with whom he has shared stages including The Band Perry, Tiffany, Colony House, Jukebox the Ghost, Futureman (of Bela Fleck & The Flecktones), and Cavo.
Eric recently released a 5 song EP entitled "The Vast Configuration of Things".
