Eric Peter Schwartz
THIS IS E
Musician from the
Eric Peter Schwartz, or simply EPS, is a prolific songwriter/singer and an ambient/instrumental artist from the Chicago area. With his acoustic guitar and voice, he creates songs that balance on the fence between quirk and sentimentality. Let's call it... squirky. His instrumental and ambient work ranges from emotional acoustic pieces to driving rock guitar fun to alien expanses and dark, unsettling nightmare soundscapes. At nearly 50, he simply follows where his creative spark leads.
In non-plague times, he gigs constantly.
"It's pretty simple," he says. "I'm a guy with a guitar, driving around the country, telling stories, expressing love, expelling demons, healing heartache, and trying like hell to entertain people."
He is also a father, husband, and podcaster. In past versions of himself, he was a playwright, comedian, actor, director, screenwriter... Schwartz has done a little bit of everything before settling into music.
SCROLL ON, VISITOR!
