Singer/songwriter Eric Andersen is a fresh alternative to the standard four piece guitar driven rock band. His music is influenced by legendary artists such as Billy Joel, Elton John and Pink Floyd, as well as contemporaries Ben Folds, Coldplay and Jamie Cullum. Eric’s music encompasses pop rock, progressive rock, and develpoped instrumentals.
“The arrangements on the record (Plane Rides & Ocean Tides) draw colors from a wide palette, from sad-faced “Last Call” to big classic rock “Crazy”, but always led by Andersen’s patient, mellifluous piano”. – Brad Bynum, Reno News & Review (October 2010). “Milwaukee transplant singer/songwriter Eric Andersen has quietly taken the Truckee Meadows by storm. His recent sold out show at Sierra arts last Saturday with Kate Cotter and Tyler Stafford was epic”. –Oliver X, Reno Tahoe Tonight.
