As far back as he can remember, Eric has been an entertainer. But it wasn't until the age of 13 that he got his first guitar...a Fender Squire Stratocaster that was painted with white house paint. The rest, as they say is history.
Eric's life, while good now has truly been 50 years in the making. Dirt road poor from Swansboro, North Carolina before moving to the south side of Columbus, Ohio. His mom was sick most of her life. When she passed away, he went to live with his grandparents at the age of 12. It was here that his love of music would be cultivated.
He was born into a Bluegrass legacy from the get go. His dad's family was steeped in that high lonesome sound of eastern Kentucky. The Sansons had a long history with the genre that included members of the infamous Bluegrass Alliance.
Eric would go on to form bands and travel the country. Music was a full time profession and was a definite way of life. In 1998, he walked away from a development deal in Nashville when his daughter was born. A move he has never regretted.
Eric spends these days where it matters most...at home with the greatest woman on earth, Miss Lisa, their kids and grandkids. He continues to write everyday and plays locally 5 or 6 times a year.
