Multi-cultural in heritage, multi-generational in music study and multi-talented on stage, he represents the sounds and artists of today’s music fans. Currently serving as chart-topping sensation and TV Star Bridgit Mendler’s Musical Director, Eric is keeping the momentum of his career moving forward and stepping into the spotlight, especially with the support of his fans who coined themselves, ”Ninjas.” Over the past 2 years, he has had an active role as a guitar and keyboard player in the band on FOX’s hit show, “Glee,” “The Glee Project”, and playing guitar for the pop rock band Allstar Weekend on Selena Gomez’s summer tour. Playing the guitar, bass, piano, drums and trombone – he draws inspiration from a wide range of musicians including The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and Ray Charles. His 2012 EP, Won’t You Stay, showed a promising range of capability, with sounds comparable to the likes of Bruno Mars, John Mayer and Robin Thicke and with the looks of Enrique Iglesias and Joe Jonas. His first single off the album, “How We Grow Old,” was a powerful ballad with its poignant lyrics and nostalgia-evoking guitar riffs. “This song was a reflection on how love evolves and changes in time” says Eric. Born and raised in Detroit, MI, after his father’s family relocated from Brazil, Eric’s childhood was a balancing act between his love for American Pop music and his connection with the jazz and Brazilian music. Now, 25-years-old and settled into his life in Los Angeles, Eric has developed a strong sense of identity as a musical artist, in which his multi-cultural influences allow him to bring a unique depth to American Pop. Recently returned from paying a visit to his fan clubs in Sao Paulo and Rio De Janeiro, Eric is back in Los Angeles and looking forward to heading back out on the road with Bridgit Mendler. He will be releasing several EPs throughout 2013 as well as writing songs with other artists, including Motown/ Def Jam recording artist, Loren Allred (from “THE VOICE”).
