Local Singer Songwriter Eric Erdman to Perform at CWC 2015

Eric Erdman
Eric Erdman

Eric Erdman is a storyteller with a life that gives him stories to write songs about. His guitar takes him around the world and he can write four songs from one break up. His lyrics are introspective but fun, quirky but accessible, profound and palatable, and they draw listeners in like old friends. With a voice that sounds like JJ Grey and James Taylor, Eric’s career began as the lead singer of the funk rock band, The Ugli Stick.  In 2012, Erdman recorded his fist solo album, My Brother’s Keepers that showed his true essence as a songwriter and performer. He followed that up with Color the Silence, recorded in Australia. A successful Kickstarter campaign funded his new album, Not Slowing Down, that was recorded in Muscle Shoals with eclectic songs that are a mix of 70’s funk, pop rock ballads, and a reggae murder mystery. “To me being a true artist is starting with whatever affects you or whatever inspires you. As a writer, I try to open myself up to be affected by everything that is serious, sad, happy, or funky. It is the crazy things going on in my head that keep me from slowing down.”
