Introducing the Multi-Instrumentalist Singer/Songwriter Eric Hall
On November 12, super artist Eric Hall will release his highly anticipated single, "My World." Written, produced and performed by Hall, he seamlessly showcases his über talent on this hit record. Fusing pop, R&B and his own sound, Eric is coming out of the gate at a gallop, and bringing music back where it should be. To accompany the rollout of Eric's new music, this musical virtuoso is also embarking on an all-out publicity blitz, including hiring the illustrious PR Firm CRAFT Agency, and booking appearances all over.
Eric was exposed to music at an early age. Blessed with a musical family - his Mother a singer and pianist, his father a trumpet player, and his older brother on the trombone - it was only right that he followed the DNA of creativity. Being exposed to artists such as Stevie Wonder, Take 6, Earth Wind and Fire, and Grover Washington Jr., Eric decided to pick up the Flute and Saxophone. His first professional gig was at the age of 12 where he played and was featured on an episode of "Sesame Street." After seeing where his talents could take him, his love for the stage and music itself was birthed.
While studying classical flute and alto sax in Jazz Studies, Eric caught the attention of Mary J. Blige's Musical Director Loren Dawson. Building a friendship with Loren gained his trust and respect, eventually earning Eric, his brother Danny, and long time friend Adam Burton an invitation to tour with Mary. The trio formed a Horn Section called DEA Horns, an acronym for their names (Danny, Eric, Adam). From there they toured and have played with Mary J. Blige, Beyonce, Madonna, Kid Capri, Gladys Knight, Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder, Jaheim, Ray Chew, Juelz Santana, Method Man, Diddy, Snoop Dogg, Jeremih, Chrisette Michelle, Shaggy, Sean Kingston, Slim from 112, Chico De Barge, Estelle, Melissa Ford, Fantasia, Regina Belle, Terrnece J, Ben E. King, Camron, Jim Jones, BeBe Winans, Cece Winans, Ne?Yo, Yolanda Adams, Keyshia Cole, Fred Hammond, Ledisi, Richard Smallwood, Cheryl Crow, James Taylor, Sheila E. Shirley Ceasar, Trey Songz, Marsha Ambrosious, Bob Mintzer, Joan Jett, Kid Kudi, Lionel Richie, Valerie Simpson, Mary Mary, Blitz The Ambassador, Sting, Carly Rae Jepsen, and many more.
In 2012, Eric teamed up with Kid Capri to produce the remix for Madonna's song "Masterpiece" off her album "MDNA." Currently, Eric and DEA Horns are touring with R&B mega star Trey Songz.
