My Set at Uncle Calvin’s

Here’s video of my set at Uncle Calvin’s last night. There are a few problems. The lighting is weird….I look ghostly. And my pickup went dead, so we had to switch to a mic, which threw me off a bit. But, overall, it gives you a sense of the night. So great to open for […]

Icarus Ascending

So, I’m a few days late, but here’s a tribute to Dan Fogelberg, in honor of what would have been his 67th Birthday this week. It’s a cover of what became one of my favorite Dan-songs, following our weekend in Peoria some years back. I still recall that weekend with such fondness. — To meet […]

The Guilt That We Survive

Here’s a new song from me. Hope you like it. “The Guilt that We Survive” It’s the rookie who just made the team
Whose old friends now just watch and dream It’s the CEO who’s upward bound
With a brother stuck in her hometown It’s the Dreamer with her new degree
Whose Abuela still long to be free […]

Eric Featured in the Lakewood Advocate

Thanks to all the good folks at the Advocate, to Patty Vinson and Kathy Tran. It’s an incredibly generous feature. […]

The title means to connote a spiritual sense of “surrender,” which is a spiritual move that lots […]

Just As I Am (A Steve Fisher Cover)

I get haunted by songs. I pity those who don’t. I have no idea how they make it through the day. The songs that stay with me, the earworms every morning, these get me through life. Recently, I’ve been haunted by a song from my friend, Steve Fisher. One night when I was at Kerrville […]

Your Full Height (New Song)

Here’s a new song from me. Stayed up till 3 am Saturday finishing it. I like how it came out. A song for our time, for the past few weeks, and for what may well be our “new normal” for a while… It’s been a crazy few weeks, yes? Inauguration. A President with disapproval ratings […]

City Hawk

How about forgetting  politics for a moment? Turning our heads outward and upward? Here’s a song I wrote over the weekend. It’s about my spirit animal…Hawks. Feel free to share, and hope you enjoy it. Every time I see a Hawk, especially in the city, I gasp….they take me out of my self, and my […]
