EJM ECHO: First update in a while…. 

After launching my first album, I’ve been contemplating my next project.  I invested in a recording studio (Bucket Brigade) managed by Joel Pearson, and also started a new company called Blue Willow Entertainment (www.bluewillowentertainment.ca).  The vision behind the new company is to help artists record their work and build a fan base through artist showcases (first one on April 22/23!!), social media support, radio programs, and touring.  

The company is very new and still in ‘building phase’, but we have started!  I’m very excited and hopeful to help artists create a new fan base that’s genuinely interested in discovering new music.  There are so many talented people out there that deserve to be heard, and we deserve to listen.  Music has the ability to influence, inspire, and create positive change.  I hope you will consider joining the community we have started to create and support our artists and events.  Stay tuned and check out the website for updates!

As for Eric John Music, I’ve been working very hard to find the ‘sound’ that suits me.  My first album was a bit of an experiment.  I’m so grateful for all the support and looking forward to sharing new music this year.  Stay tuned and as always, thank you for your support.

Best regards,


Brief Bio

Born in Saskatchewan, my prairie roots have a deep influence on my musical style and approach to performing.  My father was a musician and inspired me at an early age.  I got my start playing bass in the church choir and by the time I was ten, I was hooked on music, performing, and the art of storytelling. 

Old country music greats like Buck Owens, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, and Kris Kristofferson were played in our humble family home relentlessly growing up.  I’m drawn to modern artists that have the same gifts as these legends and aspire to tell stories and share experiences through music the way they did.  Though I played music my whole life, it’s not until May of 2021 that I’ve been able to focus much of my time to this dream I’ve had since I was 10.  If I can inspire one person with my music, I will have reached my goal.
