Guitarist Eric Brewer always had a deep appreciation for music, but it wasn't until his teens that he desired to learn to play. He began with drums at 15, then went on to learn bass as well. By the time he was 16, he was already performing as a bassist in a working band. After one practice, the guitarist in his band left his guitar at Eric's house. Eric picked up the guitar and immediately knew that guitar was the instrument he was destined to play. The guitar has never left his hands since. Beginning with private instruction, he was quickly referred to a local university and accepted into thier classical program while still a Junior in high school. He continued taking classical instruction and music theory throughout his Senior year of high school and upon graduating was able to enter a university music school with advance college credits and a generous scholarship. While in college, Eric studied performance jazz guitar and sound recording. The now 24 year old musician now resides in his hometown in Pennsylvania. He has been steadily involved in many musical projects since his return from college. While not performing live on stage with one of four bands he is in, he is a guitar instructor and highly active studio musician who has done session work for bands on local, regional and national levels in all genres of music. Eric also writes and records his own music which has been featured on compilation CD's and several popular internet sites. His myspace page has been repeatedly featured by many other artisits and musician's sites. He is continually involved in special projects as they arise such as radio and television appearances, workshops and clinics. Eric was recently one of 10 guitarists chosen to compete in the prestigous Guitar Player Superstar Competition sponsored by Guitar Player Magazine in San Francisco, CA in September of 2008. He placed highly with the esteemed panel of judges, which included the likes of Joe Satriani and Steve Vai, and received a great prize package from the sponsors for his efforts. Through this event, he was fortunate to receive national recognition and endorsements from companies offering musician's products. Video of Eric's performance at Guitar Player Superstar 08 can be found on You Tube. Eric embraces every form of his instrument from rock to jazz, metal, funk, blues, country, acoustic and everything in between, making him a versitile and well-rounded musician. Although he has only been playing guitar for 8 years, he has managed to absorb every style to combine them into a sound that is uniquely his own. He is an avid composer of instrumental guitar selections with a large library of works and enjoys the challenge of writing new music for specific events. His goal will remain one of balancing live performance with song writing and teaching others the joy of playing an instrument.
