Eric John Kaiser: First Tuesday Music
The Lake Oswego Library presents Eric John Kaiser on Tuesday, June 6, 7-8:30pm. He will play songs from his new album Made in Gaspésie which was recorded in Québec in the Gaspé Peninsula (where the first French settlers arrived in North America from France during the XVIth and XVIIth Centuries). The album enter #14 in the Billboard World chart the week of it's release.
Known as The French Troubadour, Parisian-born Eric John Kaiser is a singer-songwriter re-imagining Americana music through a French lens.
Eric was born in the southern outskirts of Paris, in small town called Verrières-le Buisson, and began learning guitar when he was 10 years old. After years of a classical music education, he found a teacher that opened him up to the music of the Beatles and Rolling Stones. He began writing songs in his adolescence, using music as both a diary to channel his experiences and as his personal legacy.
After performing over 350 concerts in France, Eric John Kaiser fell in love with a girl, a romance which would bring him to Portland, Oregon where he is currently based. Now, over a decade since his relocation, he logs close to 10,000 miles each year via air, land, and sea, guided by his music, exploring North America on multiple lengthy tours. He has gigged his way up through Canada and down through the South, as far as New Orleans and Boston.
