“Andersen is the most elegant of singers.”
- -Rolling Stone Magazine
“A singer and songwriter of the first rank.”
– New York Times
“Eric Andersen is a great ballad singer and writer.”
– Bob Dylan
Eric Andersen is a first-generation standout in the Greenwich Village folk revival of the 1960s. At age 20, he was celebrated as an emerging star of the Village folk scene by New York Times critic Robert Shelton, who famously championed the young Dylan a few years prior. Over a career spanning 28 releases, he has embodied the popular transition from acoustic American roots music and politically motivated topical song in the ’60s to the mellower, brilliant and more personally inspired singer-songwriter movement of the ’70s and beyond.
Eric has been known as a ‘songwriter’s songwriter’. His songs have been recorded by some of the best ranging from Johnny Cash and Fairport Convention to Bob Dylan, Linda Ronstadt, and The Grateful Dead among others. Eric Andersen’s voice, songs, guitar and piano playing created a career that has spanned over 45 years.
In 2017, Sony Legacy Records will be releasing a 40 song retrospective on Eric’s career. There will also be a documentary film on Eric’s 50 years in music entitled “The Song-poet” http://www.towardcastlefilms.com/filmography/the-songpoet to be released next year. Always creative, on the top of his game and ready to show new generations why he is “a singer and songwriter of the first rank” (NY Times) and a national treasure.
Eric will have an incredible band supporting him…..
