I am a prolific songwriter mainly influenced by Classic Rock, Americana, and acoustic music, but also dabble in a bit of instrumental Electronica . I play Guitar, Bass, Keys, Vocals, Percussion and other various instruments. After playing live/producing/managing for over 20 years in Rock bands and Bluegrass/Americana bands, I am now dedicated solely to songwriting. Lyrically, I tend to write about history, politics and social commentary. I appreciate many genres and am not scared to at least try writing in a new style. I have released 6 albums of my own material in the past 3 years on the web as well as manage my own website at EricHLazar.com.
As a former graduate of Musician's Institute and a former Conservatory of Music student at the University Of The Pacific, I have taught guitar over the years when not raising my 2 kids. Thanks for listening!
