Bio

Eric Martinez has been playing music for the better part of 20 years. He started playing drums early on and then picked up the guitar shortly after. By playing both instruments for so many years, he has developed a unique style of percussive guitar playing that is sure to get people moving. His time is solid and his lyrical phrasing blends in fluidly with his acoustic guitar playing.

Eric has been playing in bands since childhood. From drums in his first band to lead guitar in CubanStack, to his latest job playing lead guitar in the nationally touring band Bloodkin, he has run the gamut musically. He is currently living in Denver , CO playing solo acoustic shows, and touring with Bloodkin. He is also in an acoustic duo called Breaking & Entering, that tours the country regularly. Eric sits in regularly with the likes of Cecil “Peanut” Daniels, the Brian Jordan Band, and local favorites Polytoxic. He also recently recorded an album with an all star line-up from Athens, GA.

Eric believes in giving back to the community. He has played countless Panic Fans For Food events helping raise some of the largest donations to date. Last summer Eric’s band played two shows to raise over 2,500 dollars for a 12 year old boy with cancer. He recently headlined a PF3 event with Cecil “Peanut” Daniels, and headlined The Scrambled Scramble Charity Golf Tournament raising over 9,000 dollars

With three albums’ worth of original material ranging from bluegrass to full on rock and roll, and a vast knowledge of cover songs, including Neil Young, The Grateful Dead, Willie Nelson, Warren Zevon, The Beatles, and many more, Eric puts on an energetic show that reaches a wide range of people and their desired taste.

Eric is currently booking solo acoustic shows in the Colorado area for headlining or opening slots.
