Eric James is a clasically trained pianist turned singer songwriter born in Edmonton, Alberta.
For Eric, music isn't only a craft, but an essential part of what it means to live a complete life, one where even the tiniest details, the softest notes, are brimming with poetry. Eric has woven a harmonious tapestry from his diverse influences, often bringing Brahms, Joni Mitchell, and traditional Irish ballads together in a single performance. He delivers his songs with a dusky reserve, treating even the most familiar melodies with a graciousness that makes them sound newborn and authentic. Fans have compared listening to Eric to encountering something beautiful in a well-trodden place - something that's been there all along just waiting to be brought to light.
Eric has been drawing crowds in Edmonton since 2017 and has also performed on Vancouver Island and in Ireland and Norway. He's a strong supporter of social causes, especially LGBTQ+ rights and animal rights, and has performed benefit shows for the Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton (SACE) and Animal Aid Unlimited India.
Eric is currently working from home, somewhere between a cup of Colombian coffee and the furling pages of an old novel, practicing Beethoven and writing original music.
