Eric Harper

Podcast Release Date: Wednesday, May 26, 2021

When Eric was 7 years old he was in the kitchen doing the dishes when a song came on the radio. He doesn't remember which song it was, but he does remember the feeling that song gave him. He immediately stopped doing the dishes, quickly ran into the living room and stared at the stereo system. His sister called him back to finish the dishes, but he couldn't move. He was transfixed, mesmerized. He literally couldn't take his eyes off the stereo. He was so moved by emotion that all he remembered thinking was “I want to make people feel like that!” Since then Eric has studied classical guitar in Portugal, was in a band in LA with his brother playing fusion of rock with flamenco, and scored the music for the movie Waiting Alone. He has produced four solo albums and a number of current released singles. We feature his music in the interview You can find his music here.
