Eric and I first crossed paths when I made my way to Espresso Yourself Music Cafe, in Powell, Ohio, for an open mic night shortly after moving to Ohio. I consider myself really fortunate to have had the opportunity to experience the community and great vibes from EYMC before it closed in 2012. Eric and I talk a good bit about all that, plus a lot more. I met up with him at his farmhouse just out of town, where he spends his days gardening and tending to his bonsai trees.
Eric is a great songwriter with a great story, and I’m excited to share it with you. Not all stories are sunshine and roses, though, and this one has its share of stormy weather. But it was a great talk, I liked the direction it took, and I hope you will too. Check Out Mr. Eric’s Music here, and find out what he’s up to these days. You can also hear music from his band from a few years back, Chittenden Hotel — which we never even got a chance to talk about!
