Award-winning singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Eric Ramsey is nothing if not authentic. And original. With powerful vocals and organic arrangements, Eric writes from experience about the human condition – at times sensitive, at times humorous, always thought-provoking. His arrangements and delivery encompass a spectrum of styles, from delicate fingerpicking to raucous, bluesy bottleneck slide.
Ramsey is two-time champion of the Phoenix Blues Society’s Blues Showdown. He has been a semi-finalist at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, and a finalist in the 2017 Telluride Blues Challenge. He’s a past winner of the Stefan George Memorial (Tucson Folk Festival) Songwriting Competition and has been tapped for the prestigious Songwriter’s Showcase produced by Tempe Center for the Arts, filmed for PBS distribution.
Eric’s live performances are captivating, entertaining and accessible, and he’s a favorite on the blues and folk festival circuits not only for his dynamic performances but for his workshops on slide guitar techniques and tricks.
