2018 is a year of celebration for Eric as he marks thirty years since the start of his career as a recording artist in 1988 with his debut album on the Nova Records label, First Impressions! He would go on to add 23 more records to his catalog and this spring his Essential Recordings label is planning the release of number 25!
In addition to a recording of brand new work, plans are under way for the guitarist to personally curate a forth installment of his ongoing Retrospective Series that will encompass the full scope of his work including tracks and compositions from his solo albums AND some surprise tracks from a few of the many artists with whom he has recorded over the past thirty years.
