First Look: Eric Roberson encourages us to "Keep On" through the struggle

(December 15, 2017) Eric Roberson has been a staple artist on SoulTracks since Day One. He has been an artist of interest for two decades not only because of his consistently strong music, but also because, year after year, he has delivered thoughtful, meaningful lyrics; lyrics that address love, social issues and simply real life.

He has been an artist of interest for two decades not only because of his consistently strong music, but also because, year after year, he has delivered thoughtful, meaningful lyrics; lyrics that address love, social issues and simply real life.

Erro recently released the trilogy of EPs, titled Earth, Wind and Fire. And the latest of the three, Fire, touches beautifully on issues facing America. One of the standout songs from that disc is "Keep On," which is visualized in a memorable new video, directed by Aaron Hardin. Featuring scenes from the civil rights struggles of the 1960s, as well as the occasionally more nuanced battles of today, it ties together the multi-generational struggles with a message of persistence and even optimism. In the end, he preaches about the capacity of the oppressed to not only survive but to make advances, to be greater than the obstacles in the way.
