About Eric:

I grew up in Athens, GA and started listening to the "new music" on college radio. Soon enough I was playing in clubs in the 80s/90s. I moved to Baltimore and played roots rock, rockabilly, with songwriters, played folk, swing, bluegrass and alt country. Now I'm in DC and would like to meet versatile, talented musicians.

Bands / Organizations:

The Racket
Versatile roots rock/alt-country band out of Baltimore. About half original/half covers (on the obscure side mostly) when we play a 3+ hour set.

The Paper Tapes
DC original rock quartet. Since 3 of the 4 members write songs, we haven't gotten around to doing any covers yet.

Eric's Music:

Rattle of the Rails

This was a co-write with Wisconsin songwriter and pianist Nancy Rost, who is singing and playing piano in this recording. The video was put together by Tim Fatchen.

Cigarette Burns

I wrote this a couple of years ago. This is definitely "demo quality", something I put together by myself do see what the song was going to turn out to be. Drums are programmed, but I'm doing guitars bass and vocals.
