Eric Burton - Just your friendly neighborhood Guitar-man! The songs of Eric Burton can hardly be described as they leave us with the freedom to fill in the blanks with our own moments, truths, and experiences. He is a songwriter who sings to find himself all the while he records songs about those very experiences that we all recognize and attempt to reconcile each day. With a voice that sounds much older and fingers that move as if they seem to know the way, Eric is able to transport, transform, and touch.
