Eric Sommer is a singer, writer, and guitar player. And he’s got a style that’s a mix-a-mash of everything. It’s a cross between Billie Joe Shaver, Taj Mahal. Between Willie Porter and Steve Howe, delivered like a velvet hammer. Crown Royal poured over #2 sandpaper.

He brings a unique style and a set-up to his shows. And that generally includes 4-5 guitars, 3-4 small amps. Oh, and a stompbox. Eric Sommer shows up to play. And he means business!

In fact, it is guitar, slide & open tuning stuff wrapped around songs for people who care about things that matter. Nothing is off-limits. You’ll hear about insane ex-girlfriends, wrinkled shirts, failed love, broken hearts, bad coffee, flat tires, gas station hot dogs, dumb pets… and checkout lines.
