A native of Salt Lake City, Eric started on piano at the age of five, saxophone in elementary school then picked up the guitar in high school. Check out the custom modified double-neck guitar he has. There's a resin cast black widow spider in one of the headstocks.
In the 90s, Eric toured the U.S. and Canada with a variety of county, rock and funk bands. He runs a home recording studio, creating jingles for local radio stations. "I love all styles of music and enjoy the challenge of reproducing the original as closely as possible or dramatically changing a song's style," says Eric. In addition to the piano, guitar and sax, Eric also plays a mean set of spoons.
