Band Name/Artist Name: Eric Huff

Band Name/Artist Name: Eric Huff
Album Name: American Boy
Music Style: Country
Influences: Joe Diffie

Floating on the pure, riffs of his Blue Ridge guitar, the energetic lyrics of Oklahoma Tornado are a genuine pick me up. Eric’s catchy, spirited, choruses will stick to your tongue like homemade molasses. Perhaps part of the liveliness of Eric Huff’s harmonious vocals comes from the soul of the previous Blue Ridge owner—Bill Ursell.

Ursell was the catalyst to Eric’s first performance ever at the Rex Patrick Country Legends Show in Germantown, Ohio. The opportunity Ursell gave Eric changed the course of his life and career permanently. Ursell is the reason Eric has never stopped performing, since his passing three years ago to cancer. “I always think of him when I’m on stage,” said Eric.

Born in Wilmington, Ohio and raised in Highland, Ohio his whole life, Eric gravitated toward music, organically. Eric picked up his first guitar at 13. Oddly enough, Eric, a full-fledged country artist, surprisingly got his start in Rock and Roll before making the paradigm shift to traditional country. This brought Eric to his career molding performances of Clean Cut Country.

Eric’s musical influence has created a lofty following of fans from Highland, Adams, Brown, Clinton, Jackson and Ross counties in Ohio. Eric has performed in front of thousands all over the country and performs at local venues and festivals. From Murphy Theatre, Southern Ohio Opry and Paint Valley Jamboree, to Leesburg Summerfest, Green Country Town Festival and Chubby Howard’s Steel Guitar Convention, Eric Huff is a household name.

Aside from local performances he has performed in several clubs on Broadway in Nashville, appeared on the Shotgun Red Variety Show aboard the General Jackson Show Boat and performs at Steel Guitar Conventions.

Think Nashville
goes back in time to traditional country music, comparing Eric to traditional country artist. He is reminiscent of Joe Diffie, George Strait and Hank Senior with the look of all these country artist combined. Eric Huff presents long awaited and much sought after traditional country music, for the baby boomers who can’t stand contemporary country.

The piercing emotion of Eric’s vocals, cross uniformly from his recorded audios to his live performances. You will not feel short changed at an Eric Huff concert as he leaves his heartbeat on the stage.

A man of countless endowments Eric is a singer, song writer, musician, expert machinist and pool shot. He’s even outstanding at 3D archery, an avid fisherman and hunter. He is a proud member of the DOWN N DIRTY Outdoors pro staff. When you ask Eric about his passion for hunting his response is: "Time spent in the woods hunting with my father was absolutely priceless!".

Bringing Eric Huff back to the fold of the country music scene, the sons of Nashville songwriter Wayne Perry, are keeping their father’s legacy alive and following in his foots step. The Perry brothers have helped to propel Eric to a higher plateau by putting some of the most renowned musicians on his album. From Drummer, Lonnie Wilson and Guitarists Brent Mason, Bruce Watkins to Michael Douchette on Steel Guitar and Paul Brannon on Acoustic Picking.  Buddy Hyatt is on the keys and Jim Hyatt on the bass, with Justin Moses on the fiddle and background vocals by Chris Rodriguez.

The Players on the latest record have platinum status! These musicians have played on the albums of some of the most notable country artists in the world,  from Tim Mcgraw and Martina Mcbride to Taylor Swift and Rascal Flatts—anyone major in the Nashville industry.

Bryan Wayne Perry, Wayne’s oldest son is the Project manager for the Eric Huff Music Project, while Justin Wayne Jones, Wayne Perry’s prodigy produced the Eric Huff Music Project at The Industry Famous Dark Horse Recording studio located in Franklin, TN. Cecil Meade, Eric Huff’s Manager, helped Eric with this project by investing the right amount, in the right people at Perry Music Group.
