After many months of writing and recording I'm thrilled to announce the release of my second album, "The Yearning Curve". "The Yearning Curve" is a continuation from my first project "Premature Evacuation" which I released in 2011. The songs range from hard driving edgy blues to soothing, rich and stylish jazz passages, emotionally charged, compelling and passionate. If you should honor me by purchasing a CD or downloading any or all songs, I will be donating 10% of any profits to the Humane Society and the ASPCA. Please sign up on my guestbook for upcoming events and new music, or to book for a private party or event. I appreciate your feedback. Thanks!
Eric’s first introduction to playing music was at the local “Y” in Perth Amboy, New Jersey when he sat down at the piano and worked out his first 12 bar blues after hearing a song on the jukebox. That song ultimately became track number 12, "Edgy" on the album Premature Evacuation. Not having a piano at home yet, he took up the trumpet and learned to play during middle school and then played in the high school’s concert, marching and swing bands. He was really moved by blues and rock, learned the drums and played with a local rock band. But the piano kept drawing his interest and his parents purchased one. Eric took 4 years of lessons in high school starting with standards but moving on to jazz. Over the years, he developed his own style and started composing original songs with influences ranging from Keith Jarrett to Scott Joplin and Ray Charles. Eric currently resides in Clearwater, Florida and his music ranges from hard driving edgy blues to soothing, rich and stylish jazz passages, emotionally charged, compelling and passionate. Eric suffers for his music. Now it’s your turn.
I hope you enjoy my music and that it has stirred some emotions in you. I welcome your feedback as I am in the process of writing new songs. And as I posted on my website www.ericsanderspiano.com I will be donating 10% of any profits to the Humane Society and the ASPCA.
