Biography
Eric Roberts is an accomplished classical and jazz guitarist and bassist as well as composer, and has been playing professionally since the age of 16. He has music degrees from Ithaca College and the University of Miami and has played with numerous notable entertainers, such as: Chuck Berry, The Fifth Dimension, The Drifters, Bob Hope, Joan Rivers, Anthony Newley, Maureen McGovern, and the Smothers Brothers, to name a few.

Erics own original music encompasses a variety of musical influences, from Paul Winter and David Darling to Ralph Towner, Eberhard Weber and Pat Metheny, as well as the music of Brazil. His own unique sound comes from a melding of instruments - from the classical guitar, fretless bass and guitar synthesizer to the mandolin and the bandura (a Ukrainian instrument akin to the harp).

"In a Silent Place", features Eric on Classical Guitar, Steel String Guitar, Guitar Synthesizer and Fretless Bass. In addition, Maverick Cellist, former Paul Winter Consort member, and recording artist on the ECM, Hearts of Space and Relaxation labels, David Darling, is the featured guest artist, in addition to Robert Weinstein on guitar and Ed Contreras on percussion. He describes the music as jazzy, non-commercial new age and is perfect for relaxation, meditation and quiet contemplation.

His new EP, titled "My Brazilian Heart", features 6 of his smooth jazz and brazilian compositions.
