GRAMMY Award-nominee, singer, songwriter, and producer Eric Roberson, continues to break boundaries as an independent artist in an industry dominated by major labels, manufactured sounds and mainstream radio. Described as the original pioneer of the independent movement in R&B/soul music, Eric has achieved major milestones in his career, from being a successful songwriter and producer for notable artists such as Jill Scott, Musiq Soulchild, Dwele, Vivian Green and countless others, as well as headlining sold out tours across the country.
This Rahway, NJ native and Howard University alum became the first independent artist to be nominated for a BET Award in 2007 and was the recipient of the “Underground Artist ...of the Year” BETJ Virtual Award, with Rahsaan Patterson in 2008. In addition, Eric was nominated in both 2010 and 2011 for a GRAMMY award in the “Best Urban/Alternative Performance” category and continues to blaze trails unheard of as an independent artist. In 2011, his studio album, Mister Nice Guy, debuted in the top 5 on the iTunes R&B/Soul charts and his 10th studio album, The Box, was released in 2014.
Eric’s latest projects, Earth, was released in April 2017, followed by Wind in July 2017 and the final EP Fire was released in October 2017. The albums are part of Eric's three (3) EP compilation Earth, Wind and Fire.
The inspiration behind the album titles definitely pays homage to the iconic group, but Eric also wanted to use music to voice some of today’s topical issues and in his special way, include personal influences into these albums. “Earth is self-empowering, Wind is the love and Fire is the message,” says Roberson.
