Bio:Parisian-born Eric John Kaiser is a French singer songwriter living in Portland, Oregon. His last, and fifth album “Made in Gaspésie”, has charted #14 in the Billboard World Chart the week of its release. Eric tours nationally in the USA, Canada and France and has performed at the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco, The Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC, the Blue Nile in New Orleans and the Solidays festival in France.
Blurb:His family has a deep educational background (his brothers are both teachers, and his mother was also a teacher for 30 years), so he recognizes the importance of education. He combines that educational foundation with the knowledge and experience he gathered through touring in France, Canada and through recording five studio albums and offers a unique French music teaching perspective.
