Eric’s music has been described as refreshing, superb and hip sounding, having a sophisticated pop sensibility, as well as compelling and truly Jewish. His debut CD Notes from the Underground (2003) is noted for a rock n’ roll “Mi Chamochah” and power-ballad for peace “Lo Yisa Goi.” His second effort Two Life (2007) features special guests Peter and Ellen Allard and includes social action anthem “Justice, Justice.” He ushered in 2011 with Ripples, containing the High Holiday hit “Return” and a contemporary setting of “Dayenu.” His long-awaited kids album Todah Torah, showcasing the talents of his students, was released in the Fall of 2013. Several of Eric’s pieces can be found in publications from Transcontinental Music, as well as Craig Taubman’s Craig n’ Co.
Eric lives in New Jersey with his wife and two children. He currently serves as a synagogue music specialist, does music transcription and typesetting, and teaches guitar.
