Eric Peters is a standout among the overcrowded scene of singer/songwriter folk-pop.”
–RELEVANTMagazine

 

“It’s clear that Eric Peters has a love for literature and an ear for a great pop hook. Peters has the skills of a seasoned artist.” –Christianity Today


Originally hailing from south Louisiana, Nashville artist Eric Peters is as genuine as he is down to earth. What you see is what you get. Eric is an artist at heart. Unafraid to laugh at himself, he also knows when it is time to be quiet. A performing singer-songwriter since 1993, he has recorded nine albums, is a member of the Square Peg Alliance (Andrew Peterson, Jill Phillips, Andy Gullahorn, Andrew Osenga, etc.), and is currently writing Far Side Of The Sea, a first-person narrative concept album and accompanying book (photographic memoir).

 

Eric also paints canvases, dabbles in folk sculpture (The Daily Piece), and avidly collects and sells books (The Book Mole).

 

Eric’s art works on multiple levels – his beautiful melodies and images are immediately accessible, but his intentions continue to emerge long after the first impressions fade away. The varying layers continually reveal new discoveries the deeper and harder one looks.

 

“I have, from the beginning, sought to bring something pretty into the world, to write words and paint scenes I myself would like to hear and see, if only for the self-serving purpose of reminding myself that, though so often dimmed, the light can not be overcome by darkness.”

 

“I trust that my work is interpretative, not merely instructional. While instruction can be instantaneous and fleeting, interpretation allows for the factor of time: Time to heal, time to breathe, time to forgive, time for anger, time for failure, time for success, time to change, and time to become.”

 

Recurring themes of faith and hope-triggered plotlines are simply an echo of who Eric Peters is, his experiences, and his attempts to understand his own fallible world. “I am doomed without the strong and tender hand of mercy. I hope to share that of myself: the tangible and intangible, the noble and despicable, the manageable and mysterious.”  

 

We're excited to welcome Eric Peters to Tucson for his first show at GJ's Coffeehouse!  Please note that for this show only, admission is $5, to enable us to help with Eric's touring expenses.

 

 

It didn't take long to decide who to ask to open for Eric:  local artist Dave Robson is a GJ's favorite, and one of the best singer-songwriters we know.  Add to that the fact that he's funny, humble, and a fantastic worship pastor (Calvary Christian Fellowship of Tucson), and Dave was an obvious choice for this very special show.

 

Some of you might remember that Dave opened for a friend of Eric's (another member of the Square Peg Alliance) - the one and only Andy Gullahorn, in a special GJ's show a couple of years ago.  It seemed only fitting that Dave would also open for Eric.  (Confession:  I am hoping that they'll induct Dave into the Alliance as a member...)
