Biography

At a first, quick glance, one might suspect that Eric Vinson was one of those athlete types. His 6’5” inch frame warrants such suspicion. Upon meeting him however, it is hard to ignore the clever, charming, and creative juices which seemingly flow from every inch of his build. Twenty-one year old singer/songwriter Eric Vinson does not mind the quick suspicion as long as you take time to figure out what he’s really all about. Born in Overland Park, Kansas yet raised in the Carolinas, Eric arrived in Nashville in 2001 with one main objective – living life to its fullest. Spending 3 years in completion of undergraduate work at Trevecca Nazarene University, Eric now turns bright eyed towards a dream of making music which seemingly took a while to develop. “Growing up I longed to be nothing more than a two-sport, baseball/basketball guru… making it to the professional level of course,” he says. Midway through his high school experience though, Eric found himself trading the glove for the guitar as he thoughtfully and passionately began the pursuit of music. Such passion was only kindled upon moving to Nashville for a college education and now choosing to reside there as well. “I just love music. There is something about notes and chords with words being creatively arranged overtop which can elicit a varying range of emotions. Nashville provided the opportunity to be exposed to such beauty more frequently,” he adds. With influences ranging from the John Mayer/Matt Wertz mold to that of Stevie Wonder, Eric offers an acoustic driven, jazzy/folk feel with almost lounge-style melodies being sung alongside. He captivates an audience with his thoughtful lyrics (seemingly able to relate to a wide range of people), soothing voice, and delightful stage presence. Eric’s personality not only flows from his music as he coins lyrics, but also in the way he interacts with the audience where ever he plays. “When it comes down to it, I’m just trying to share a piece of who I am with whomever I come into contact with. If my music is able to do that, then I consider myself successful,” he says. Music listeners beware - the catchy music of Eric Vinson will be swarming your CD player and radio soon. You will undoubtedly catch yourself singing along and smiling before you know it…
