Eric is in high demand for his dynamic funky soul beats. He is the monstrous, baddest drummer out there. That man can play those drums tighter than a mosquito. Just listen closely to the hi-hat followed by the kick, that grove just locks you in. Hes got the IT as in HIT factor. Some drummers can just play anything. He is diverse in all styles of music. It helps to have a wide vocabulary in the studio where he is well respected for his production skills.
Be true to the music, be true to yourself. That's the easiest thing a person could master. Paying homage to his Creole heritage, Eric believes in just living life to the fullest while giving a little of himself and we are all the better for it !!

Nate Stevens-
Nate is one of music's great undiscovered treasures. He can apply fretless finess or double-thumbing furious funk workouts. As a bassist, he listens closely to the hi-hat. He likes to create the pulse of the foot with his base. It's just a feel thing!! A gifted musician he is an example of power and grace on bass.
