A classically-trained violinist, he started his singing career with the Harvard-Radcliffe Veritones, for whom he sang tenor and vocal percussion and wrote nearly fifty arrangements. He has since founded, directed, and/or sung with several semi-professional a cappella groups, Most significantly, he founded, directed, arranged music for, and wrote original songs for the acclaimed Boston-based pop/rock vocal band Downtown Crossing (DTX).

In early 2009, his current vocal band Strangers in Harmony (www.strangersinharmony.com) won second place in the Pacific Northwest Regional Harmony Sweepstakes; the Strangers recently opened for the Bobs and are enjoying being a key part of the music scene in Portland.

Eric recently received a nomination in the 2010 A Cappella Community Awards for Best Solo A Cappella Project. He is honored to have been nominated alongside an elite set of legendary artists that includes Bobby McFerrin and Scott Leonard (lead singer of Rockapella).
