Eric Richards- Demo

" Hello Providence"
" You're My Song"



Whether it’s the brilliant acoustic guitar accompaniment, the powerful baritone voice or the well-crafted down-home lyricism that has gathered audiences for almost 10 years, one thing is for sure; Eric Richards has people listening. Having spun a sonic web that clings to the acoustic innocence of James Taylor, yet captures a poignancy that recalls Townes Van Zandt, Eric has found his way into the hearts and minds of acoustic music fans everywhere. Aside from faithfully reproducing some of the most well regarded songs of our time, Eric Richards is emerging as a well respected songwriter in the local music scene.
Richards grew up singing in local church and community choirs. By the age 13 he had already felt the lights of Orchestra Hall, Northrop Auditorium and the Ordway Theater. At age 15, Eric bought an old classical guitar and took some lessons from a local teacher. After displaying remarkable aptitude and dedication, Eric decided to pursue music as a career. In 2007, Richards graduated Cum Laude from the University of St. Thomas with a degree in guitar performance. By applying classical elegance to a rugged Folk/Rock tradition, Richards has bridged a gap few ever dare to traverse.
In 2006 Eric went to Nashville and teamed up with producer Lonnie Ratliff. After releasing his first self-titled EP, Eric Richards is becoming a known singer/songwriter within the Minneapolis Community. Whether performing in barrooms or wedding ceremonies, audiences are continually delighted after experiencing the music of Eric Richards.
