“Urban troubadour, Eric John Kaiser, Parisian expatriate and fresh Portlander, sports a unique folk/rock/funk sound paired with both French and English lyrics that surfs the musical vibes of Paris, Portland, Australia, Hong Kong, and all the oceans along the way…”
J. Charles Waldron,
The Oregonian - The Oregonian


"Le trio parisien conserve cette fraîcheur innocente de débutant. Rien de mieux pour lui donner des ailes d’aplomb".
- Olivier Portnoi


The song l'ODyssée was selected on Portland PDX Pop Now 2007 compilation featuring all the upcoming artists from PDX (Colin Meloy of The Decemberists, Menomena, Yacht...) more at :

"Eric's musical influences are American artists like Bob Dylan, Nirvana, etc. So Eric knew he ultimately wanted to move to the homeland of his influences in the same way a chef who specializes in French cuisine might move to Paris to study and practice his own art."

------------------------------
After doing over 300 concerts in France, several in Australia and in Hong Kong, Eric John Kaiser traveled over 5,000 miles from his home in Paris, France to move to Portland, Oregon one of America's most dynamic cities.

But after he recorded his debut solo album "L'ODyssée" in Paris last summer, Eric decided he wanted to take a fresh look at the world. So he traveled across the ocean to a town famous for its devoted community of independent artists.

Now happily living in Portland, Eric began pulling together a new band, a trio. Solo or with his band he has played over 100 concerts in the Northwest of the USA : Seattle, Portland (at Dante's, Mississippi Pizza Pub, Portland State University, Reed College), and in the state of Oregon (Bombs Away Café in Corvallis, Mc Menamins Edgefield in Troutdale, Boons Tresory in Salem, Grand Lodge in Forest Grove, Hotel Oregon in Mc Minville). He also performed in front of several hundred people for Bastille Day, on July 14th 2007, in the Pearl District in the heart of Portland.

Eric John Kaiser loves nothing more than to play live music. Eric delivers an energetic live performance reminiscent of the uptempo excitement of Manu Chao, Neil Young, Bob Marley or Xavier Rudd.

And keeping in line with the Homeric title of his solo release, Eric takes his audience on a musical odyssey that travels from rock to hip hop to reggae.

It's a voyage this humble French Troubadour invites everyone to join. Eric John Kaiser will make you feel like he traveled those 5,000 miles to play just for you.

"The Parisian has kept (the) innocent coolness of (his) freshman years which gives him wings to fly away and stay grounded at the same time...far from being conventional, he enjoys writing in French as well as in English."

Depuis plus de 4 ans, Eric John Kaiser surfe avec sa guitare en tant que "French troubadour” sur les vibes musicales de Paris, de l'Australie, de Hong Kong et des US. Originaire de Paris, et de double nationalité franco -américaine, sa folk urbaine s'inspire de Neil Young, Dylan, Manu Chao ou encore des Stones. Avec son ancien groupe dont il était le leader, Melt, il a enregistré trois disques. Il a également participé, aux coeurs, à l'album "Robots après tout" de Philippe Katerine au Studio Ferber avec Renaud Letang et Gonzales.

Eric aime autant se retrouver sur la route
