Eric Porter / Bio

The songs here are in rough demo form. I am just getting into computer recording, and my drum machine skills are highly suspect. I plan to clean these up, and hopefully record them correctly, they should give you an idea of what I am trying to do.

Played Guitar in Albany Area Progressive Rock band Trespass from 1985-1991, and Alternative Rock band Monkey House from 1991 - 1994. I play guitar and and attempt all the others...I really enjoy writing and recording music, not sure how to classify it, so let me know what you think, I'd love to hear good or bad.

My influences fall into 70's rock and progressive rock. Started out as a big KISS fan, then listening to a lot of 70's hard rock / classic rock (Aerosmith, Van Halen, etc..) I was introduced to 70's Progressive Music and have been a fan ever since. My favorite guitarists are Steve Hackett, Andy Latimer, & David Gilmour. The music of Genesis, Camel, Happy The Man and Pink Floyd are among my favorties of this era. Current bands that I am listening to : Porcupine Tree, Opeth, Mike Keneally, Neal Morse / Spock's Beard. There is also a love of good old fashioned pop music, favorites include The Beatles and Jellyfish.
