Eric Peter Schwartz is a singer/songwriter from Aurora, IL. The best way to describe his sound is "pop-laced original acoustic rock". As a writer and performer he draws from a variety of influences like Melissa Etheridge, Bruce Cockburn, Bryan Adams, Ryan Adams, Warren Zevon, Paul Simon, Indigo Girls, Pink Floyd and even the delta blues, beat poetry, most 80s top 40 and novelty artists like Weird Al and Jonathan Coulton. If it went into his ears, it goes into his music. His songs and performances take the audience through a varied landscape of feelings and are never boring. He hates being boring. His latest album is 2017's HIGHWAY 45.
