Eric J. / Bio

Born in Decatur, Illinois in 1960, I don’t ever remember not loving music. I don’t remember not singing. Shuffling through my parents LPs, listening to the soundtrack from Camelot, or The Letterman, and their ilk was my early musical education. I grew up singing in the church youth choir my mother directed in grade school. By the time I was in high school I was accomplished enough to sing in advanced choirs and compete at the state level. After graduating high school I cut my teeth on rock ‘n’ roll with a band called “Spectrum”. Also in high school, I received my first guitar. I think I knew four chords when I wrote my first song. I’ve progressed to the point where I try to bring a vibrant flare to more traditional songwriting standards.
As an adult God spoke into my heart that I am a psalmist, meaning, songwriter. So thats what I do all the time. I love it and am so blessed to be able to make Music From Maple Hill.
Maple Hill Studio is my current base of operations where I record my own material and provide audio/video services for customers from a wide variety of genres of music.

A quick glance into my catalog of will reveal over 350 original pieces of musical composition. In 2016 I’m looking forward to releasing four distinctly different  projects of my own material as well as performing solo dates in support of my 2015 release “It Can’t Get Any Better”.
Currently I’m also playing guitar, singing and playing harmonica with 23 North, a large variety band featuring a four piece horn section and five vocalists.  I was also recently named by “The Review”  magazine, In a reader poll, Best Male Blues Vocalist”
Contact me: eric@ericjmusic.com  if you have any questions or would like to book me for an event you’re promoting.  In the meantime I’ll keep making Music From Maple Hill.
