Inspired by 1970's keyboard aces Gary Wright, Dennis DeYoung, Keith Emerson,
Manfred Mann and others, Eric began taking piano lessons at age 12. It wasn't long before he had his first synthesizer. In
addition to being active in school music programs, Eric played in a series of garage bands and quickly graduated to working
bands, eventually going on a multi-state tour with a club band at age 17. Now a veteran Rock keyboardist with 30+ years experience,
he's an established solo artist and also a member of the Alt Rock/Electro Pop band Burning Nopal. Eric lives near Dallas,
Texas with his life partner Steve, and their English Bulldog Winston.
