Eric Roberson is "Here" with a new musical gift for fans

(April 3, 2020) So, if you've been a SoulTracker for any period of time, you definitely know we love Eric Roberson. The "King of Indie Soul" has been gracing our site since the beginning, with his brand of perceptive yet groovalicious music. 

But Erro's fans know he is not only crazy-talented, but the man just...doesn't...rest. So it is entirely fitting that during this odd time of quarantines and "stay in place," Eric would use the time to make more music. Most of all, Eric wanted to connect with his fans at a time when he can't do it in person.

Most of all, Eric wanted to connect with his fans at a time when he can't do it in person.

The result of his work over the past month is Hear From Here, a brand new album that acknowledges the situation we're in, but also gives more than a glimmer of hope that everything will be okay. "I have learned from past experiences to trust the process and look for the purpose. I found it in this album, Hear From Here; 10 songs I heard when the world was quiet." He calls the disc an "act of service" for his fans.

The album opens appropriately with “Road to Recovery,” where Erro expresses, as a musician, what the rest of us are feeling as we stay at home: “Shows cancelled…we have nothing to do but music. I hope to take your mind off things.” And it continues for a 10 song set that make us smile from ear to ear, celebrating his homebound rush of creativity.

We're proud to present this little bottle of salve at the end of a dreary week. Check out Here From Here below, and pass it on to a friend.
