Hey, I'm a recent college graduate in Rochester. I have a great voice, an ear for harmony, and do a lot on songwriting on the piano. As well, I create and sample electronic sounds.
I work as a solo artist under the name Eric Matthew. I have done a variety of performance events and production projects: concerts, church music, weddings, music videos, video game music, piano instruction, songwriting, etc.
My first and second albums can be found at http://ericmatthew.bandcamp.com.

Under the name The Great Divide, I have also completed this EP with some friends:

Interview with Eric Andersen
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have taught piano lessons, released two albums, and played a lot of small shows. My band is a rotating cast of characters, although my brother has always been a part of it. I have helped others learn to love songwriting, and I have written songs for others. Music is my passion, but I have been up and down financially.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I love sincere, authentic music, like the artists Animal Flag and Josh Garrels. I also like quirky stuff like Andrew Bird and Animal Collective. I like messing with sounds, like Brian Eno. I don't like my music to be too predictable, formulaic, or fit too nicely into a genre. I don't like music that could have been made by a robot. Music should move you, emotionally.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I tend to use the Spark, a microphone by Blue, and the Fast Track Pro by M Audio for much of my recording. I have several sets of speakers and monitors I use for playback. I work in a small room in my apartment with a natural sound, and don't clutter it with a lot of gear. Often, simple is better, especially for poor people like me.
