My daily goal is to experience a word that will move me. It can be something said, read or written down. I have dedicated a large part of my life, to sharing my love for the art of combining words. The songwriter series t-shirt was birthed from several essays I wrote this year. The focus is on the words. The hope is that it will move you, while you comfortably move in it.

This song is a true example of freely expressing yourself without worry of judgment, expectation, assumption or ego. What I heard in my head fulfilled me. As I played the instruments I felt rewarded. I felt purpose as the song poured out of me. What it does from here is left in the hands and hearts of the listener.
The song is inspired by the creative gumbo that feeds my music. The theatrical musicality of Stevie Wonder, heartfelt word play of Commissioned and the unapologetic low end approach of A Tribe Called Quest.

"Things Meant For Me", captures the thoughts I have shared and practiced for years. I truly believe we find songs more than we create them. So my goal is to stay aware of the life nudges. Hope something in it connects with you. -Eric
The inspiration and concept for “Lessons” came to Eric around 3am on the morning of his 13th wedding anniversary. Eric was sitting in his studio feeling rather creative and as he was reflecting over his life, he started working on an idea that would soon become the song, "Lessons.” He posted 60 seconds of the song online and then went to bed. What Eric woke up to, was the biggest reaction he has received from his music in years: thousands of his fans downloaded the snippet of the song. “God has a funny way of showing you lessons. Often times, we feel good about a release, but rarely do we have the luxury of knowing ahead of time that it works,” says Eric.
"With the remix, I didn’t want to just get three of my favorite singers, I also wanted three of my favorite writers. I’m honored to get their perspectives on the ups and downs of love and how it all leads us to where we are supposed to be," mentions Eric.
