We had the good fortune of connecting with Eric Lauer and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Eric, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
I began playing guitar at 11 years old and writing songs around 15. At the time I wasn’t thinking much about a career, I just loved music (and creating) as a form of self expression. As time went on it became a bigger part of my life so I’ve kept at it.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’ve been writing songs and performing for over 25 years now. I think the key to any type of success is perseverance, hard work, & humility. I’m currently working on a new (acoustic) EP and hope to have it released sometime in summer of 2022. My previous work is available at www.ericlauermusic.com and any platform that streams music…spotify, applemusic, googleplay, pandora, etc.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Anywhere that supports local music and art.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’ve been lucky enough to have a lot of support over the years from friends, family, & peers. It’d be difficult to list them all. But they know who they are, and I love them all dearly.
