“Eric EQ Young Is Just For You Just 4 You by Eric EQ Young If you have been looking for your fix of passionate, high-energy funkadelic grooves, then Eric EQ Young is Just 4 You. If you are a fan of Sly Stone, Prince, Con Funk Shun, or the SOS Band, then you will thoroughly enjoy this EP. It is full of intense funkadelic grooves that will cause you to dance all of your worries away. Hailing from Bay Area, California, EQ has an impressive resume including opening for, playing with, and being signed by recognizable names in this thing known as the music business. He received his first guitar at the age of 8. He found himself imitating Sly Stone but it was the strong influence of Larry Graham that led Eric to switch to learning bass as well as studying musical composition.”

“Eric EQ Young 'Just 4 You' Album Review After many years of instrumental funk background, funk-vet Eric EQ Young is taking his step into the spotlight releasing his debut solo album Just 4 You. Young is able to achieve grooves across the spectrum, sparking upbeat danceable jams, to toned down mellow beats. Young is able to please moods or even influence them with his songs, and he displays that ability in Just 4 You. Admittedly new to funk, I can’t help but enjoy this album. I give it 3.5 out of 5. Eric EQ Young is gifted lyrically as he is equipped with a soothing voice and instrumental ability. Being only five songs long, I hoped the album would be a little longer. However, he packs a lot into five tracks so successfully that I recommend the album. Just 4 You combines funk, soul, and R&B all into an excellent danceable blend. The first two tracks “Why You Funkin” and “Dance With Me” serve up upb”

"I was born to do this", says singer, song writer and virtuoso bass player Eric 'EQ' Young, and who could disagree as his new R&B smash single "Never Stop Loving" soars the Billboard Top 25 Hot Singles Sales Chart (at number 18) and the Top 10 Billboard Hip Hop and R&B Singles Sales Chart (at number 9). The idea of never stopping especially when the going gets tough are words to live by and are especially poignant for Eric. His new found success is a testament to how this veteran showman has never stopped believing in his natural gift as a born entertainer. A native of the San Francisco Bay Area, his Grandfather gave Eric his first bass at eight years old. Inspired by the sound of Sly Stone, he quickly became a self taught, intuitive musician. Eric was given his first break into the music industry from legendary producer Quincy Jones, and the name 'EQ' was bestowed on Eric by Don Cornelius after a mind boggling Soul Train performance

“Eric, My wife and I just saw you and Confunkshun at the Celebrity Theatre June 2nd in Phoenix Arizona. I have watched many videos of you on the internet including "Candy" and the Tampa Florida video, but never in person. My wife was amazed at how much you move and dance while playing the bass and I enjoyed the show as much as the videos I always watch. You and Confunkshun looked like you were having fun! My wife Anna and I took pictures with you, Michael Cooper and Felton Pilate after the show. Thank you for taking the time. I hope to see a Confunkshun concert in the coming year in California or Las Vegas. My wife jokingly told you I was in love with you. You said it was all good. You are a bad &%$ on the bass and a GREAT showman! Keep up the funk. I am a huge fan and as a DJ since 1977 been playing Confunkshun on vinyl, cd and digital files for over 30 years. BIG FANS!!! Chuck & Anna Wetzel”

“This past Sunday, I was invited to Eric EQ Young’s album release party. I arrive and the party is a red carpet affair filled with great energy as a comedian is on stage warming up the show for Eric EQ Young. Suddenly, Eric EQ Young hits the stage with an eccentric style quite hard to pinpoint along with a live band. I was at awe. The whole time I was trying to figure out where he got his ton of energy from. The last time I got this kind of entertainment was seeing Prince in Purple Rain. Eric EQ Young is cooler than ice.”
