While touring Australia (Dec 2012-Feb2013) in support of my album, “My Brother’s Keepers”, I found myself surrounded by amazing musicians. Once I realized that I had way more than enough songs for another album, I put the 2 together. I asked my Australian friends to help me make a new album and they obliged. The result is “Color the Silence”. This album is one I am very proud of. Available at all my shows and at all online retail outlets. Check it out. Much Love, Eric Erdman
Note from Mom: Today Oct 9, Eric left for a tour in Germany and maybe a show in Belgium. He will return home with lots of stories and probably post them on Facebook, Twitter. He returns on Octomber 24th. (Eric’s Mom…Juanita)

I write songs. So Does my Brother.
EVERY now and then, we’ll write one that’s worth hanging on to — what you might call a real “keeper”. One day we got to wondering . . . What would happen if we took each other’s best songs and made a CD out of them? The result was My Brother’s Keepers — a CD, a tour, and a whole new chapter.

Eric stays busy, he just returned on Oct 24, 2013 from Europe. Loved Germany, Italy, Belgium and the other four countries he visited as well. The shows were great and he can’t wait to return. He is now on the Rombello Music Cruise to the Bahamas that left the shores of Miami, FL today. Then, day after his return he will head up the Port City Rising II at the Saenger Theatre! Two weeks later it is off to Los Angeles, California. A brief update from….
I just want to say thank you to all of you for coming out to the Blue Gill for my CD release show with the Hussy Hicks. It was an incredible evening and of course it was great to see all of you. It was very fun to get to play all the songs with the Australian girls who helped record them in the first place. Big thanks also to Brandon Whigham, Greg DeLuca and Ross Newell (of the Mulligan Brothers) and the amazing Kristy Lee for sharing theirs talents as well. It made the night a special one for sure.

Eric has been touring and gigging non-stop since early December 2012 in Australia. He is now lined up and ready to quickly record 11 or 12 of his brand new songs for his Australian CD. I am so excited about it. He allowed me to help weed out and pick the ones for this album…not sure if he took my advice but he offered me an opportunity for some input anyway. His remarkable journey in Australia has been life changing and I am so happy he was able to experience that. 22 days from now he will land in Pensacola,FL (Feb 25th)…and his momma will be there waiting!
Love, Eric’s mom
Eric is currently in Tamworth at a 10 day Country Music Festival. It is a huge festival where people come from far and wide to enjoy great music and fellowship. He will perform on Tuesday and Wednesday and is very excited about it.
He will leave Australia on February 14th and will stop in Los Angeles where he will be working in the Bear Jam Studio until February 27th when he returns to Mobile!
Three days after his return he will be performing at the Blue Moon Farm in Silverhill, AL. Make your plans to come out and welcome him back to the USA!
This is Eric’s mom. Today I decided to update his post on this site. He is about halfway through his trip to Australia where he is touring.
He is gigging, fellowshipping, swimming,surfing, going to dinner parties and overall having a ball. Next week he goes into the studio to record a new CD with at least 12 of his newest songs. I am excited about that! He loves and misses his family and his friends just as we miss him.
Everyday is a new adventure for him over there. It is the middle of the summer there and they have had record breaking heat, it was 120 a couple of days ago when we spoke. He has for some reason decided to grow his beard out without any trimming or grooming while he is there…I can’t figure that one out at all….I guess it is a man thing. I will keep you posted on the CD!
There are lots of big things happening. I have my final show in America tonight at Callaghan’s. I’ll be opening for Johnny Fritz and the In Laws as a part of their Ameerican Songwriter Magazine presents concert. I play 7:15-7:45pm, so come early. It’ll be a fun time. I’m glad I’m getting to play one of my favorite venues right before I head out.
Tomorrow I leave to do some writing and recording at Bear Jamz Studios in California. After a week of the West Coast I head to the Gold Coast of Australia. I’ll be down under touring, writing and recording with my friends “The Hussy Hicks” for a few months. I’me very excited about all of this.
And finally (as if that weren’t enough), the official video for “Bird on a Powerline” was released today (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKz8imbExdc&feature=plcp). I’m so ecstatic about it. Please watch it, and more importantly share it. I think it looks great. Ray Iddings did a great job producing the video and Joey Herro did a great job of shooting and editing. Again, check out the video and spread it around.
I’ll keep the site updated regularly with all the touring info. So come back here often.
