Eric Roberts is an accomplished guitarist and bassist as well as composer, and has been playing professionally since the age of 16. He holds a B.A. in Music from Ithaca College and a Master of Music from the University of Miami. He has enjoyed a successful career playing in Broadway shows, backing up name entertainers such as Chuck Berry, The Fifth Dimension, The Drifters, Bob Hope, Joan Rivers, Anthony Newley, Maureen McGovern, the Smothers Brothers, recording with the Orchestre Suisse Romande, television appearances and teaching guitar and bass.
Eric's own original music encompasses a variety of musical influences from Paul Winter and David Darling to Ralph Towner, Eberhard Weber and Pat Metheny as well as the music of Brazil. His own unique sound comes from a melding of instruments -- from the classical guitar, acoustic bass and guitar synthesizer to the mandolin and the bandura (a Ukrainian instrument akin to the harp).
