The excitement of discovering new artists will never get old for us. We love scouring the web for the best new music from across the globe, but sometimes, the best talent comes straight out of the Midwest right here in the States. In this case, we’re stoked to highlight singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Eric Pedigo, out of Indianapolis, Indiana. Eric brings a lot if different styles together to create a really nice sound comparable to Jason Mraz and John Mayer. More people need to know about this dude asap! We’re big fans of his new music and our favorite tracks off of this fresh album are “Purposely Forgetful” and “Don’t Keep Me Waiting.” Here’s what Eric had to say about his experience writing and recording:
“I aspire to inspire, to connect, to share, to spark a flame, to give a piece of momentary happiness. My song is my island. I want others to feel engaged the way I do l when I listen to songs I love. I’ve been at this for about 15 years now, writing songs and playing shows. I have always wanted to write songs that were an insight to my life, but also relatable to others. Songs that were simple and would get stuck in your head. My first solo EP Parachute was released in February of 2014. It was an eye opener in that I found that I had a lot to learn and a long way to go. Since then, I’ve been channeling my life into writing even more and learning more about the craft in hopes to improve the quality of my writing. Earlier this Summer, I released my new album, Sun & Shade. This is a collection of songs about searching for love and sometimes finding it. Its about choosing optimism over pessimism. Its about searching for my place in the world among the chaos.”
Eric wrote all of the songs on this album and plays Ukulele and Guitar on it, along with singing on the tracks, too. Check it out below!
