We welcome soul singer, songwriter, and producer Eric Roberson to Band on the Wall.

2014 will mark Eric Roberson’s 20th year in the music busines (Eric's first single "The Moon" was released in 1994) and he is celebrating by releasing two albums – a 13 song collection of B-sides and rarities, followed by his ninth studio album later in the year. In 2012 he moved into gospel music for the first time when he teamed up with Fred Hammond, Blackstreet member Dave Hollister and Brian Courtney Wilson to form United Tenors, whose self-titled RCA album hit the Billboard Top 40. In the past he has written songs for numerous US artists, including Jill Scott, Will Downing, Charlie Wilson and Musiq Soulchild.

In both 2010 and 2011, Eric Roberson received Grammy Award nominations in the category of Best Urban/Alternative Performance for the songs “A Tale of Two” and “Still” respectively, an amazing accomplishment for an independent artist.

Eric has gained a reputation for delivering dynamic live performances, which continues to spread all over the world. His ability entertain by bringing life to his songs on stage and creating songs on the spot using words provided by the crowd has been known to convert strangers to family, and turn those who have lost faith in the authenticity of music into believers again.

“He is a brilliant singer with a voice like red velvet cake.” Jill Scott

With support from DJ Paul Mac (Soul Boutique).
