Eric Roberson

GRAMMY Award-nominee, Singer, Songwriter, Producer, Professor and Howard University Alum

As a GRAMMY Award-nominee, Singer, Songwriter, Producer, Professor and Howard University Alum, Eric Roberson continues to break boundaries as an independent artist in an industry dominated by major labels, manufactured sounds and mainstream radio. Eric has achieved major milestones in his career, from being a successful songwriter and producer for notable artists such as Jill Scott, Musiq Soulchild, Dwele, Vivian Green and countless others, to headlining sold out tours across the country. 

Eric is celebrating twenty one years as an independent artist, creating “Honest Music” since 2001, which has afforded him the artistic freedom that isn’t typically offered in the mainstream music industry. On April 1, 2022, Eric released his latest album entitled “Lessons”. 

Eric is currently a Professor at the legendary Berklee College of Music in Boston. When asked about the position he stated that, “It was an opportunity that I couldn’t refuse. I truly believe that at all times we are teachers and students. I not only love teaching the students but learning from them as well.” 

In 2017, Eric created “The Process”, a forum in which he invites fans to navigate through his creative experience. It allows fans to listen and comment to unreleased songs, thereby being a part of the “process” of making music. “We are losing so much of the culture that goes with listening to music. Letting the fans watch us create the albums was our way of bringing some of the old music culture back.” says Eric. You can follow
