Eric Skye’s acoustic guitar wizardry defies easy categorization, weaving jazz, blues and pop genres into a unique tapestry of musical brilliance. Whether applied to familiar works or original compositions, Skye’s symphony of string leaves the audience with a whole new listening framework for solo guitar. Based out of Portland, Eric has performed live on morning television for NBC and FOX, been featured on National Public Radio, Public Radio International, and done live radio broadcasts all over the US.. Skye has been featured in magazines such as Guitar Player, Fretboard Journal, Premier Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Guitar World, Jazziz, Jazz Improv, and a host of international publications.

In an unexpected departure from past projects, Skye’s latest release, June Apple, is a collection of early American fiddle tunes arranged for mandolin and guitar. The album features Eric, in his alter ego mode as an oldtime/bluegrass flatpicking guitarist, along with the masterful mandolin work of Tim Connell.
Get ready for solo guitar like you’ve never heard it. You won’t be disappointed! “A perfect synthesis of eclectic influences” –Acoustic Guitar
