"You made our wedding weekend!" and "Everyone loved your performance!" are typical of the responses given to and left in the guest book of Woodstock's EXTRA-sensitive singer/songwriter, Eric Erickson. With hundreds of cover songs from "The Rise of The Singer/Songwriter" to choose from (see the partial list and listen to the "Covers Montage"), you can re-live your youth or just listen to some great old songs. Eric can provide relaxing background music---or a full concert---with great acoustic tunes from the 60s and 70s and the "ballady" side of rock and roll. His original songs fit right in with the genre. Some of his own tunes are here also.

Planning our wedding from overseas was both exciting and challenging - working with professionals like Eric made all the difference. Eric was absolutely brilliant - incredibly talented, enormously accommodating and very professional. He was flexible and responsive, learned the songs we requested and played them flawlessly, Music was one of the first things that brought Richard and I together and continues to be a big part of our lives, so the right soundtrack for our wedding day was key. Our standards are high and Eric didn't disappoint. Highly recommended!

I hired Eric to play at my wedding ceremony, and as a result, became a huge fan! Eric worked closely with me to pick the right songs that would work well with our vision. He was honest, knowledgable, and open to ideas throughout the process. He is a talented guitarist and also a strong vocalist. Many of my guests still talk about his performance, making it a very special part of the day. Eric is able to take requests, but even more impressive is his attention to the audience and surroundings. For example, my father mentioned a particular song in his toast, and Eric played it - right on the spot! I strongly recommend him as a musician and professional!

Eric performed at my wife’s funeral yesterday; an emotional time for my family and I. The church was completely full (standing room only). He was amazing. He played three beautiful songs at the conclusion of the ceremony: My Sweet Lord, Annie’s Song, and Let it Be. Eric poured heartfelt energy and passion into each song to lift our spirits. He performed with a flawless transition between the songs. A spontaneous connection occurred between the audience and Eric on “Let it Be” where everyone sang Let it Be! Let it Be! Eric was the buzz of the gathering afterwards where everyone commented that Eric was so talented, healing, and uplifting. We will hire Eric again.
