Eric's passion for music, and the guitar, started in elementary school where his Dream Job assignment included: musician, guitar player, rock star, music teacher... and astronaut. Since '91 Eric has been pursuing those passions relentlessly (except for the space stuff). Starting with his mom's guitar, taking lessons from family friends and then professionally, to teaching guitar by age 13, playing in bands, writing songs and getting years of education, Eric's goals were cemented in his mind.
A student of many forms of music, but always passionate about his rock, Eric studied studied music all his life. While attending GIT in Hollywood and doing music degrees at Dalhousie University, Eric got to explore so many opportunities outside of just playing. Now Eric continues to play regularly with multiple acts, is a freelance guitarist, and also owns dB Music Centre which is a school he opened in 2015.
No stranger to hard work after 28+ years pursuing his dreams, Eric is now putting his best foot forward having released his first solo album, To All The Things That Begin And End, which is available on here in lossless format, Apple Music, Spotify, and Google Music. To All The Things... is the culmination of musical and life experiences Eric has had as well as a project that heart and soul have been poured into. Following in the footsteps of his idols, this new album is an instrumental rock album drawing on the the influences of Steve Van, Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, Eddie Van Halen, John Petrucci, and other virtuoso players.
