Eric says he first picked up the instrument at age 9, getting lessons from his father. According to Eric, his early musical influences mirrored his fathers’…Stevie Ray Vaughn, the Allman Brothers and his personal favorite which is Gov’t Mule.
…New England Blues legend James Montgomery “…he certainly is way beyond I was at his age…” says Montgomery about Eric’s guitar prowess. “…What impresses me and my other band members about him is that he is a very inventive player, way beyond his years in terms of being able to just jam and go with it. His solos are seamless. He’s got really great ears, not only for someone his age, but for anyone.”
