The Very Best of Eric Harper
An incredible mix of 19 songs from Eric's major albums. In this album you'll hear the songs in the styles of Flamenco, Fado, Rock, Pop, Bossa Nova and more. Hear Eric's warbling in English and Portuguese and an incredible virtuosic journey into his unforgettable guitar-playing technique. Unlike anything you've ever heard, Eric has been considered a hybrid between Dave Matthews and The Gypsy Kings.
Eric Harper is an Emmy-Award Winning composer and guitarist who creates a style that is not only all his own, but his music is melodically entrancing, virtuosically ferocious and harmonically soul-stirring to the core.
Hatched from a small “po-dunk” town in Arkansas, tempered by the hard-worn guitarists of Portugal, inspired by the fantastical Flamenco from Romanis in Spain, modernized by the transformative education of Berklee College of Music in Boston and currently camping out amongst the Canucks in Canada, Eric brings a fusion of music never experienced before by a “redneck”.
Eric released his first solo album in 2008 entitled "Romper a Madrugada" which has played in countries all over the world from Portugal to Brazil, China to Kenya, Canada to the States and more.
After, he released his self-titled CD "Eric Harper", in 2010, garnering the attention of people like Rainn Wilson from The Office and Grammy-Award Winning Producer KC Porter.
In 2013 he released his instrumental CD entitled "Ribeira" showcasing his virtuosic guitar skills in Flamenco and Fado.
Since 2000, Eric has won multiple awards not only for his guitar skills but also for his Film Scoring talents such as the ReRec Contest in 2019, the New York Film Award and European Independent Film Award for his work on Wished in 2018, the Guitar Mania Contest in 2014 and many more. To date, he has has composed music for over 900 TV shows and has scored 9 feature films.
Eric's live show is quite the spectacle of blending his hilarious and heart-felt story-telling along with his mad guitar skills and soulful voice. Anyone who sees Eric is guaranteed to laugh, cry and dance in their seat.
Eric has performed all around the globe from Portugal to China, Canada to Mexico, Switzerland to Israel, France to Spain and many more countries.
