Eric Ginsberg has brought his unique brand of upbeat and personal pop/folk – rife with storytelling, hand claps, and sing-a-longs – to theaters, colleges, cafés, bars, living rooms, and all manner of impromptu venues all across America.
He swirls elation and heartbreak into powerfully relatable, cleverly-crafted, crowd-pleasingly catchy songs, alternating from sweeping anthems to compelling laments.
Ginsberg's 2020 album, FIRE, was recorded in Louisville, KY, and was produced by Peter Searcy and co-produced and engineered by Danny Kiely.
Eric Ginsberg typically performs as a solo acoustic act, but his extensive repertoire of songs provides opportunities to sit in with any band willing and able to follow along. He is also available to perform at storytelling events.
In addition to performing as a singer/songwriter and storyteller, Eric Ginsberg also hosts the podcast, 5 to 9 – A Movie Game. He lives in Asbury Park, NJ.
The Asbury Park Press writes, “With an atomic persona and a fiercely independent ethic – reminiscent of early Jeff Buckley or Thurston Moore – Ginsberg challenges every notion of what a performer should and shouldn’t be. It’s obvious that Eric Ginsberg is destined to hit.”
The Aquarian says, “Prepare to be deceptively lulled with warm acoustic intros and melodic riffs, as Ginsberg’s voice belies a pithy wisdom. Whatever your take, this is one artist who will do anything but leave you cold or wanting.”
triCityNews calls Eric Ginsberg “one part Tasmanian Devil and one part P.T. Barnum. He combines energy with enthusiasm and creates order out of seeming chaos.”
