Raised in Pennsylvania and currently living in Oakland California, American Roots & Soul singer songwriter Eric Long delivers a robust and raw voice from another time entirely. His folk/soul fusion come directly from years playing Rock and Roll, Folk, and Blues on a number of instruments including the Guitar, Banjo, Harmonica, and Dobro/slide guitar.
Life on the road has been a rough teardrop of joy, and a lesson in gratitude and inspiration. From this road, songs of the beautiful raw journey of being alive have poured out of the very wishing well which inspire Eric's ongoing songwriting career.
Throughout June of 2014 Eric put a final stamp on years of ever-changing songs recording his upcoming studio album “Carousel” at Astro Puff Studios in Philadelphia. In the wake of this full band album Eric began writing and performing with the Oakland based Power Funk and Blues trio Hot Diggity Damn, while continuing to pursue his solo career where old-time banjo and guitar songs of oneness and deliverance are growing like grapevines out of his very soul and bones.
