Eric is notably excited about a new relationship with Eastwood Records. Eastwood is working with Eric on the re-release of his 2017 album The Wind. There’s plenty to be excited about. The promotional activity for this re-release offers a potential boost for Eric’s music career.

Among the topics we discuss (not necessarily in this order) are self doubt, connecting with fans on a personal level, email list building, house shows (aka house concerts), the challenge of booking quality gigs, balancing fatherhood, teaching and music, marketing his music versus his visual art, and what he’s most challenged as a music artist today.

Eric music juggling act also includes touring with a trio and a side-project rock band called Alcatraz Shakedown. He admits representation and a team would be nice, but Eric is clearly thankful for everything he has.
