“This song was written as a reflection of the internal struggles of an unknown artist, chasing a path of uncertainty, yet being completely content with it and accepting of whatever is to come.” – Eric Sleeper
Beginning his musical career at 14 years old, Eric quickly learned the guitar and MIDI keyboard but instantly gravitated towards songwriting. Taking inspiration from the likes of Bob Dylan, Nick Drake, Elliot Smith and Bon Iver, Eric values their minimalistic approach to songwriting. Embodying a dreamy ambience, Eric derived his stage name “Eric Sleeper” from that thought, which is equally portrayed and proven through his music. Fans have much to look forward to as Eric prepares to release his debut album in the near future.
