Eric Weiler is a blues influenced guitarist /singer /songwriter who was born and raised in Huntington, West Virginia. While growing up in Huntington Eric began playing guitar professionally at the age of 12 and performed with the Oakwood Beer Band, The One Eyed Cats, Overflow and The Remedy. Within a few years Eric’s talents became well known to those in the North Eastern Region of the U.S. which gave him the opportunity to share the stage with established blues musicians as well as opening for many national acts.
Now an adopted son of Greenville, SC Eric has enjoyed tenure playing with The Dirty Audibles, The Big Jar of Jamm, Sweet Mojo Rising and now with the Eric Weiler Group. Eric has been caught jamming with the likes of Tomo Fujita (Berkley School of Music Guitar Instructor), Ike Stubblefield (Hammond B3 legend), Jeff Sipe (Aquarium Rescue Unit) and many other great players. In one minute Eric can conjure up the vibe of B.B. King, then morph his sound into a Clapton-esque vibe and then eerily summon the soul of Jimi Hendrix lighting up the stage every time. Some have even asked if he has gone to the crossroads and sold his soul for these abilities. This of course is not the case.
September 7th 2013 marks the release of Eric's first solo album New Day. The album is a mixture of rock, catchy pop choruses, and memorable roots songs all sprinkled with a little bit of that blues guitar style he has become known for. Songs like "Home To Me" bring back a little of that 90's college rock vibe, "Falling For You" is a tip of the hat to a gentlemen we all know as Eric Clapton, "A Million Miles" takes you on a 3:00 am ride on an open highway and "Fade Away" will take you back to the old days while closing out with a touch of that southern gospel sound.
