Sneak Peek CD of the Month: Eric Roberson brings us back to "Earth"

He’s been dubbed the “King of Indie Soul” for good reason. For the better part of two decades, Eric Roberson has defined all that is good about the independent soul music movement. Through ten albums that have tracked the progression of R&B music, but with the constant elements of thoughtful lyrics and memorable songs, “Erro” has established for himself a fiercely loyal audience and the admiration of his peers.

He’s been dubbed the “King of Indie Soul” for good reason. For the better part of two decades, Eric Roberson has defined all that is good about the independent soul music movement. Through ten albums that have tracked the progression of R&B music, but with the constant elements of thoughtful lyrics and memorable songs, “Erro” has established for himself a fiercely loyal audience and the admiration of his peers.

Now three years after his hit album The Box, Erro returns with Earth, Wind & Fire, an ambitious trilogy of EPs. It all begins now with with the brand new project, Earth, to be followed by Wind on July 21st and Fire on October 20th . The idea to release three albums in one year began during the creative process in the recording studio. “I was writing songs that didn’t feel like they belonged together. One song would be about empowerment and another about love,” says Roberson. The trilogy EP was then birthed. “Earth is self-empowering, Wind is the love and Fire is the message.”

Featuring work with Glenn Lewis, James Poyser, Daniel Crawford and others, Earth is a fitting next step in Eric Roberson’s killer discography, and to his life now as a husband and father. “I can’t say I’m writing better songs, but I can say I a able to write songs I couldn’t write before. I truly feel as creatively free as I have ever felt.”
