Eric Roberson…You Need to Know Him!

13 02 2008


I cannot say enough about Eric Roberson.  I discovered him a few years back in the same way many of his fans, especially those in Chicago,  may have through his house influenced song Change for Me.

After hearing a few of his songs from his Estoeric cd from his website, I immediately purchased the cd, and soon after bought his cds Left and The Vault Volume 1.5.  Imagine if the feel you get from De La Soul, Tribe Called Quest, Jill Scott and Erykah Badu merged into one person…yeah its that serious.

It’s easy to say that Eric is an emerging, almost unheard of artist, but if you go to one of his concerts then that is hard to believe.  I have seen him a few times and each time the audiences are larger and filled with fans that sing along to every word never missing a single one of his beautiful lyrics.

Aside from his own music, he is also a songwriter and producer that has worked with Jill Scott, Musiq, Floetry and even the great J Dilla. 

Every time I listen to one of his songs, from Obstacles to Pretty Girl to Def Ears, and then try to listen to lyrics to (fill in the blank) a lot of current artists that currently receive airplay, I can’t even begin to imagine why Eric is such a hidden gem and not racking up Grammys.
