“Eric Peters is cursed with an inability to settle or to sell out, afflicted with a need to follow his nose musically, lyrically, while spiritually he has falteringly tried his best to follow where God leads.”
Andrew Peterson wrote those words about the Louisiana native for the Square Peg website of which both songwriters are a part and the sentiment is spot on. The ring of familiarity might come for some from the ’90s duo Ridgely yet others might know his strong folk work on Scarce or More Than Watchmen. But we’re betting that most are new to Eric’s world which is why he’s being featured here.
A new album is finally on the way yet the process is different than what you’ve encountered before – instead asking fans to be a part of the journey. We recently spoke with Eric to discuss the wiki-approach and how his story has changed over the years.
