Eric Scott is a Washington, DC based modern soul singer/songwriter.
Washington, DC’s singer/songwriter and bassist, , is pure soulful goodness. He has toured internationally, sharing stages with the likes of B.B. King, Mavis Staples, Aaron Neville, REO Speedwagon, Roger Waters, and Deanna Bogart and you can hear why. There is a unique blend of clarity, kindness, and soul to his voice and phrasing that makes Eric the kind of artist you want to be around, as those qualities translate directly into the kind of person he is.
On his own he performs his own “evolving brand of funky, upbeat, socially aware” music that is, like him, immediately relatable. His songs, woven together by his recognizable signature sound, are diverse and rich, each with the element that make that magical “head nod – foot tap – hand slap” happen as you listen. His musicality is so on point, arrangements so smooth, and Eric’s voice is like the cherry on top, crystal clear soul with just enough grit underneath to keep it real.
His latest album, Peace Bomb, comes out at the perfect time when our world needs peace and love more than ever.

“This Soul/ jazz infused song is a finely musically arranged song that makes you feel so calm in an intense situation”. -drop the spotlight.
