Why you should see this show…

Eric Roberson and his band are taking to the road to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of his album, Music Fan First. The album was made as a reward to his fans and as a personal reminder that, he too, is a fan of music first. Creating Music Fan First was all about forgetting the rules of making music and focusing on chasing a feeling. Eric and his band are bringing a new show and, more importantly, that feeling to Music Box with the Music Fan First 10th Anniversary Tour.
 

 

Eric Roberson Bio
Grammy Award nominee, singer, songwriter, and producer Eric Roberson continues to break boundaries as an independent artist in an industry dominated by major labels, manufactured sounds and mainstream radio. Described as the original pioneer of the independent movement in R&B/soul music, Eric has achieved major milestones in his career, from being a successful songwriter and producer for notable artist such as Jill Scott, Musiq Soulchild, Dwele, Vivian Green and countless others, as well as headlining sold out tours across the country.

This Rahway, NJ and Howard University alum became the first independent artist to be nominated for a BET Award 2007 and was the recipient of the “Underground Artist of the Year” BETJ Virtual Award, with Rahsaan Patterson in 2008. In addition, Eric was nominated in both 2010 and 2011 for a GRAMMY award in the “Best Urban/Alternative Performance” category and continues to blaze trails unheard of as an independent artist. In 2011, his studio album, Mister Nice Guy, debuted in the top 5 on the iTunes R&B/Soul charts and his 10th studio album, The Box, was released in 2014.

Eric’s latest project, Wind, will be released on July 21st. This album is the second part of a three album compilation Earth, Wind, and Fire, to be released throughout the year. Wind features Urban Contemporary veteran Will Downing on the single “Lyrics Of Pleasure.”

The inspiration behind the album titles definitely pays homage to the iconic group, but Eric also wanted to use music to voice some of today’s topical issues and in his special way, include personal influences into these albums. “Earth is self-empowering, Wind is the love and Fire is the message,” says Roberson.

 
Nathan-Paul Davis Bio
Nathan-Paul has dedicated his career to playing original music, but never leaving the listener behind. “Vibe, Bounce, Dance!” is a motto Nathan-Paul lives by. “Music does what words can’t.” Many people work 9-5 jobs and look to music to revive and relax them. A Nathan-Paul show seeks to do just that. “I love Miles and Trane, but I also Love James Brown and Maceo Parker.” Nathan-Paul seeks to combine his many influences into one unique sound.

Nathan serves as songwriter and show developer for Wesley Bright & the Honeytones, who have opened up for Lee Fields, Charles Bradley, Tower of Power, War, and more. Nathan-Paul also leads an instrumental trap/jazz/funk group called The Admirables, who have served as the backing band for international recording artist Dwele, they’ve opened up for Cory Henry as well as Kamasi Washington. Nathan has also shared the stage with Grammy-nominated guitarist Dan Wilson.
