Eric Nassau is everybody's friend. His music grew out of the Connecticut Coffeehouses and into the Midwestern Cornfields.
Now, using the talented and supportive community of Columbus, Ohio as his springboard, Eric has played at bars, benefits, bookstores, coffeehouses, house concerts, festivals and Universities all over the United States and Canada since 1996.
His evocative lyrics, gentle vocals and finger-style guitar combine with a warm stage presence and good humor. In the tradition of folk troubadours, his original songs reflect lived-in soles and handed-down stories, personal anecdotes mixed with imagination and charm. His stage show backs this up; his engaging personality reaches out to audiences like a friend you haven't seen in years.
Eric has been a featured performer for 5 years at the Northland College Folk Festival,
and was just featured on the Main Stage at COMFEST 06' in his hometown of Columbus, Ohio. He has performed at established venues including CB's 313 Gallery and the Bitter End in NYC, The Bluebird Cafe in Nashille, The Free Times Cafe in Toronto and the Kibbitz Room in L.A. to name a few. Eric has also shared bills with Chris Smither, Hot Tuna, Stacy Earle, Chris Barron (Spin Doctors), and the late Vince Welnick.
