"B-Sides & Badlands"

Indie-rockstar Eric Coomer rips us back in our seats, driving his own Delorean into the power-pop sensibility of the ’90s. “Letting Go,” which features a heavy, full-chested belt and electric guitars woven into each other, anchors a new EP, The Vast Configuration of Things, expected this summer. “I wanna see the whole sky,” he bellows with a gravelly, salt-of-the-earth tenor. His presence is illuminating but strikes a rather organic chord (and it’s downright obsessive). - B-Sides & Badlands


"Come Here Floyd"

A promise. A promise to yourself. More than a pinky swear, it’s that turning of the corner. Singer/songwriter ERIC COOMER makes that promise in this fantastic single ‘Letting Go’. In the fall of 2018, Eric rented a cabin in Tennessee state park and started his process. And in those 2 glorious days, he’d recorded much of the instrumentals on this single. But for us, it’s Eric’s vocals that drive us to listen. It is a driving manipulation of the vocal cords, that is palpable and very much honest in its expression. Combined, this single sings with dramatic exuberance. His upcoming Ep ‘The Vast Configuration of Things’ drops this summer. - Come Here Floyd

Bio

Nashville based multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter Eric Coomer has built a name for himself as a talented musician, singer, and songwriter as both a solo artist and as lead singer for the band Knapsackheroes.


Eric sings from the perspective of a fellow traveler who understands well the doubts and frustrations as well as the joy and laughter this life brings. He's never been afraid to tell the truth in all its ugliness and beauty in his songs. Most of Eric's songs are autobiographical or biographical in nature. His songs shoot straight to the heart because they come from his heart.


Growing up in Kentucky, Eric was the child of a father who was a United Methodist pastor and a mother who is a lauded retired elementary music teacher. Eric has been performing since he was a teen and writing since he was just twelve.


Some of Eric's biggest influences include R.E.M., Tom Petty, The Replacements, Sixpence None the Richer, Simon and Garfunkel, U2, and Ryan Adams.


Never satisfied sounding like anyone else, Eric strives to be an original and veer away from the ordinary. This is reflected in the wide array of artists with whom he has shared stages including The Band Perry, Tiffany, Colony House, Jukebox the Ghost, Futureman (of Bela Fleck & The Flecktones), and Cavo. 

Eric recently released a winter EP and a new single. He will release a new EP later in 2019.
