Eric Lilljequist and Dean Adrien
August 31, 2012
At 24 Eric was involved in the now classic Boston band, Orphan, along with fellow guitarist and harmonizer, Dean Adrien and Jonathan Edwards, who later penned "Sunshine Go Away Today" and went on to national stardom. Eric's songwriting took off and their first album was entirely his own works. Overflowing with creative ideas, he began writing songs for other artists as well, most notably Jonathan Edwards and Bruce MacPherson.
With his current trio or as a solo performer there is none better. To hear Eric's songs arranged and sung by Eric himself is sheer joy. His voice is reminiscent of Van Morrison and Boz Scaggs but is pure Eric in the end. And whether he's playing acoustic or electric, his guitar work is first rate. To see him live is to understand the word "perform". What he gives out in concert is from his soul and can't be bottled or easily traded on the net. You'll know when you see him that you have witnessed one of the greats.
