Eric Eagle


Drummer Eric Eagle was born in Nashville, but was quickly transplanted to a suburb of Seattle, WA where he grew up playing music in school and regional groups. He spent two years studying music at the University of Washington, and with encouragement drumming legend Billy Hart, moved to New Jersey to attend the Jazz Studies program at William Paterson College under the tutelage of Horacee Arnold and John Riley.

Not interested in limiting himself to any one particular style but rather finding the common elements that exist in all his favorite music, Eric has found himself equally at home in a wide range of musical outlets.  He has honed his craft performing and recording around the world with artists ranging from jazz (Julian Priester, Wayne Horvitz, Bill Frisell, Kenny Kirkland) to songwriters (Brandi Carlile,  Jesse Sykes, Amy Ray, Laura Veirs) to rock & roll legends (The Kinks’ Ray Davies, The Band’s Robbie Robertson, Crosby, Stills, & Nash, ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons).  He has performed at esteemed venues including Red Rocks Amphitheatre and The Fillmore, and many prestigious festivals in North America and Europe including “All Tomorrow’s Parties”, “Peace and Love Festival”, “Winnipeg Folk Festival”, “Sasquatch”, and “Vancouver International Jazz Festival”.  Eric also records and mixes music operating out of Skoor Sound, his studio in West Seattle.
