Biography

Many of Eric’s sounds bring to mind some of the most notable performers in the industry which include Commissioned, Boyz II Men, Brian McKnight, Usher, and Men of Standard. By taking a little from each one his influences, Eric formed his unique sound. Though raised in the church, Eric’s foundation in the music industry began with R&B. In 1999, Eric attended Iowa State University, where he majored in Theater and Performing Arts. While at ISU, Eric was embraced by a group of individuals that equally shared the gift of music, and formed a quartet reminiscent of Boyz II Men, AZ Yet, and Take 6 called “Mission”.

Their four-part harmonies, vocal arrangements, and unequaled range, garnered much attention from industry executives, and producers alike. Their popularity spanned the Mid-west; however, they only achieved marginal success due to management difficulties, subsequently causing the quartet to be reduced down to a duo. Comprised of one-half of the original group; the duo began performing before a wider audience, opening for major artists, and once again garnering the attention of even more industry executives. However, as Eric began to grow more in popularity in the music industry, so did his calling toward the work that was before him. As a result, Eric returned back to his roots, and began serving the ministry of music in a different way.
