How does someone this good, this complete a talent, stay in the background for so long? He is exactly what the music biz needs so desperately... Mike Gross, US Music News
Shreveport, LA (PRWEB) November 11, 2014
Eric Sommer, American Artist, premier guitar player and prolific writer, finds solace and refuge in the small listening rooms that dot the American landscape.
And, according to Sommer, the Sentient Bean in Savannah is one of the best in the Land.
Which is exactly where this traveling singer, songwriter and all around musical badass can be found on Friday, November 21st, starting around 8pm-ish. He's been thru the area before but not for a few years, and this is an excellent opportunity to catch a truly authentic singer, writer and guitarin' ace, playing in a style that is almost impossible to copy.
On the heels of the successful release of "RAINY DAY KARMA", Eric Sommer is coming back with a new disc due out in January titled "The Word For World is Forest". This effort is significantly different from RDK.
This disc is loaded with new material and instrumentations. It's much more introspective, giving thoughtful pause to reflect on all manner of everyday observations Sommer continually references in his prose and lryics.
