Eric has always been an innovator. While he has deep respect for tradition he understands that the best way to show that respect is to progress the art form, sometimes into unconventional areas.
He has relentlessly experimented with new directions for the classical guitar to expand the capabilities and reach a wider audience. An example of this eclectic approach to repertoire is expressed in the recording, Guitarra.
In concert he often plays his arrangements of rock classics, such as “Paint it Black” by the Rolling Stones or “Little Wing” by Jimi Hendrix.
“To serve the music with all my integrity and artistry is my sincerest aspiration.” - Eric Henderson.
