About Eric

When Eric Schaffer left Connecticut for Tucson, Arizona in 2007, he was intent on escaping the brutal New England winters.  He found plenty of sunshine – and the next phase of his musical career.    Shortly after arriving in Tucson, he found himself immersed in the vibrant local music scene and performing at popular venues all over town. Inspired by the desert southwest, he began composing original songs. 

Often co-writing with his wife, Glastonbury native Carol Sheldon Schaffer, Eric has been a finalist in numerous songwriting competitions including the Great American Song Contest, Passport to Nashville the Tucson Folk Festival songwriting contest and the Tumbleweed Music Festival songwriting contest.  

Eric has performed extensively throughout the US and parts of Mexico, both as a solo artist and with his band, The Other Troublemakers with whom he has released two CDs and is currently working on a third.  He has opened for major national acts including Clint Black, Marc Cohn, and Blackberry Smoke, and will be opening for country music superstars Lonestar on May 13 in Tucson.

With a musical style that flows between Country, Folk-Rock and "Singer-Songwriter", Eric's vocals have been compared to Steve Earle and Kris Kristofferson, and his songs are heavily influenced by the great singer-songwriters of the 1960s and 70s. Sometimes tender, sometimes tongue in cheek, sometimes rollicking, his performance and storytelling will be sure to move you.  

 

A typical live solo show with Eric will include original songs from his 2 CDs “The Bootleg EP” and “Crazy Road Trip” along with new, as yet unreleased music, plus a few select cover songs. You will also be treated to a bit of storytelling as he introduces his songs; sometimes humorous, sometimes tender, sometimes introspective, the listener is drawn into the background and inspiration for his writing.
