Eric Sanders/ Visions of a Dream: Bio

Eric Sanders

Eric’s first introduction to playing music was at the local “Y” in Perth Amboy, New Jersey when he sat down at the piano and worked out his first 12 bar blues after hearing a song on the jukebox. That song ultimately became track number 12, "Edgy" on the album. Not having a piano at home yet, he took up the trumpet and learned to play during middle school and then played in the high school’s concert, marching and swing bands. He was really moved by blues and rock, learned the drums and played with a local rock band. But the piano kept drawing his interest and his parents purchased one. Eric took 4 years of lessons in high school starting with standards but moving on to jazz. Over the years, he developed his own style and started composing original songs with influences ranging from Keith Jarrett to Scott Joplin and Ray Charles. Eric currently resides in Clearwater, Florida and his music ranges from hard driving edgy blues to soothing, rich and stylish jazz passages, emotionally charged, compelling and passionate. Eric suffers for his music. Now it’s your turn.

I hope you enjoy my music and that it has stirred some emotions in you. I welcome your feedback as I am in the process of writing new songs. And as I posted on my homepage I will be donating 10% of any profits to the Humane Society and the ASPCA.
