Eric Peters lives in a hole in the ground with his myriad exotic pets, a pair of cackling ganders, and a trio of servant mice named Ralphie, Certain, and Musket. Eric spends his days fireside sipping cafe au lait, dawdling, and yawning. He jogs barefoot, and prefers a wildly overgrown lawn.


Eric lives in an eclectic, historic neighborhood in east Nashville with his wife and their two sons. When he's not on the road playing music in front of humans, he tries to write songs, and every few years records them. An artist, Eric paints canvases and creates folk-art sculptures made from repurposed materials (Daily Piece). Eric enjoys both the reading and collecting of old books, ornithology, tinkering, and eating well-seasoned nachos. He rarely jogs, and he hates snakes.

“Peters is a standout among the overcrowded scene of singer/songwriter folk-pop.” – RELEVANT Magazine

“It’s clear that Eric Peters has a love for literature and an ear for a great pop hook. Peters has the skills of a seasoned artist.” – Christianity Today
