Hailing from The Bay Area to the history and tradition of Harlem, Eric Brown is all about the groove. From Rachelle Ferrell, Lalah Hathaway and Sheila E to Broadway musical theatre, Eric is always in the pocket but turns up the heat when it’s time to “give the drummer some.” Eric is not only a drummer but a singer/songwriter and producer whose music can be found online. An ever-rising star, Eric Brown is in high demand in NYC, but he finds time to pass the torch while teaching at the Harlem School of the Arts where so many greats have studied. Eric Brown will release a new album, Still, in Spring 2018.
