Get Off My Back, Out Of Time

Ever since Eric first picked up a guitar, the instrument captivated his heart and soul. The 21-year-old blues guitarist and singer has continued to be inspired by old and new blues musicians such as Robert Johnson, T-Bone Walker, Freddie King, B.B. King, Ronnie Earl, Danielle Nicole, Larkin Poe, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and Jonny Lang. 

"Get Off My Back" is Eric's first full-length Album. 

 

"The Crow Cries at Midnight" delves deep into Eric's personal life. "It's a song that's very close to my heart. I wrote it about a friend and bandmate who lost his life due to suicide a few years back. He ultimately inspired me to sing and to write my own music, and I felt it necessary to honor him on my first album."

"Outrun the Fire" concerns police violence towards African Americans. "I feel like as a country we could be in a better place when it comes to racism, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia. We all need to band together if something is to change in this world. No, I am not an African-American and I will never experience what it is like to be racially profiled but to actually experience change, we need to stand up with anyone who is oppressed and stand against racism and bigotry. 

Rainey Wetnight of Blues Blast Magazine claims that Out Of Time is "one part Jimi Hendrix, one part the Dave Matthews Band, one part Chris Isaak, and all original. “Eclectic” and “unique” are the two best descriptors." She also says that "Heideman channels Jeff Healey to near-perfection."

Many Eric Heideman fans claim that he has "an old soul" and "a stage persona perfect for the blues." Brian Kelm from local radio station KRCL claims "Eric is a great local blues singer and guitarist."
