Image Hosting by PictureTrail.com Eric recorded his debut album as a solo artist in 1988 for Nova Records called “First Impressions” and 15 albums later he is still making music that moves; that captures the imagination…that touches the emotions. Eric's last three recordings have been particularly revealing and personal, giving the listener an up close look at the man behind the music and the place he calls home, Birmingham. Eric grew up there in the midst of the turbulent 1960’s and, after an initial introduction to the guitar by the Beatles, got his start as a performer in the church. Today gospel music still informs and influences everything he does, however, early exposure to Wes Montgomery, Miles Davis and Jimi Hendrix greatly contributed to Eric’s sound and style as a guitarist. Join us for a cool jazz conversation with guitarist Eric Essix as he discusses his career and his latest work"My Gift To You"
