He’s been called “A Smart Songwriter”, “Intelligent Lyrics and Catchy Melodies”, and “I don’t know – just really good, I guess”.

With comparisons like “Van Morrison meets The Cure” and “merging Neil Young and U2 with some Great Big Sea thrown in” Eric Distad is not your run-of-the-mill singer/songwriter.

With eclectic influences ranging from Chamber Music to Heavy Metal, he blends many different elements into new unique combinations, with an alternative meets folk flair.

Eric’s been playing in and round the Twin Cities music scene since the early 90s. Starting in 2004, he embarked on a solo career. With the help of his wife Jen on Bass and Mandolin, Eric’s show spans from melancholy folk to upbeat pop nerdiness.

His latest CD – A Little Light – was released Nov 2012. Check it out on the A Little Light page here. You can also see previous works in the Discography section.
