Eric Solomon’s music possesses rich, dirty grinds spotlighted by a blazing showmanship. A child prodigy, Solomon is a self-taught wunderkind able to play numerous instruments. Self-assured with plenty of bite, his progressive ballads use molasses tempos that smack of hooks raising more than just eyebrows. His harmonic grooves are gutsy, driven sounds that refuse to be categorized. An eclectic brew of soul, funk and rock & roll, My Reality speaks of heartbreak, success and raising yourself beyond inspiring musical anthems and genre rebirth.
Raised in Congo, Africa, his sound absorbs many genres including street funk, raunch rock, old soul, R&B and neo-jazz. Well-known as a perfectionist, he produces, writes, composes, arranges and performs. Not just stylistic lip service, but authentic musical expression forged by personal experience. His range, elastic voice and musical gifts account for his broad appeal.
Surrounding himself with a tight lineup of James Brown-like horns, drums, guitars and bass, Solomon’s soulful funk reshapes hysteric riffs and haunts you with infectious grooves. From the audience, the complete sound seems as if the musical wheels might fall off if the band dared to stop and breathe. A potent live band that slams back and forth between an ever-unfolding musical mission, serves the listener a triple dose of spontaneity, originality and electricity.
