Eric Andersen on SoundBetter

Hey, I'm a recent college graduate in Rochester, New York. I have a great voice, an ear for harmony, and do a lot of songwriting on the piano and guitar. As well, I create and sample electronic sounds. If you need a beat, or help writing/finishing a song, I can help.

I perform 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. You can hear my work at EricMatthew.Bandcamp.com.

As well, I play in an alternative rock band located in Rochester called the Cottage Street band. You can hear all of our tracks at CottageStreetBand.bandcamp.com or at CottageStreetBand.com.

Interview with Eric Andersen

  1. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  2. 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.

  3. Q: How would you describe your style?

  4. 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.

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. 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.
