A lot of hard work has been paying off in a big way. Eric's recent CD Hopscotch is getting air play on many jazz radio stations throughout the country and in Philadelphia on WRTI 90.1 FM Hopscotch made it to #5 on the Hot 11 Countdown. The CD has gotten positive reaction by the listening public.
The quartet also tours throughout the U.S. in the ensuing months with a tour of the South in March of 2003, a tour of California in the fall of 2003 and many other venues on each coast. "I'm a new father now, my wife and I have a 5 month old baby girl. We are truly blessed. My wife Darby is also an artist and knows what needs to be done in order to make a living playing jazz. They are both my greatest motivators. And playing jazz with Andrew, Kenny and Jeremy has been great. We've worked as a solid unit for three years and have really been able to develop. I'm looking forward to sharing our music on this European tour and somewhere along the trail we may stop in your town to share our music with you. I look forward to that.
