Boy In A Bubble_500x500.jpg

Eric's songs tell stories that are personal, yet universal. His sound is influenced by travel, wanderlust, and musical styles ranging from indie rock to spaghetti western.


His latest single, “Boy In A Bubble,” is about the frustrations of social isolation during the worldwide pandemic. His first single, “Wake Me in Paris,” made the semi finals in the 2017 International Songwriting Competition (unsigned category).

Eric's West Coast roots and big sky guitar sound meld into an enticing mix of retro and modern. Eric's music has appeared in more than 300 TV episodes on major networks, including A&E, CBS Sports, NBC and MTV (see the Credits page for more details).
