MUSIC4YOU IN SHORT
Since 1982, Eric is dedicating most of his time to the propagation and celebration of world, folk, and roots music. His commitment is not just professional but deeply personal, fueled by his passion for music, cultural diversity, and Peace.
However, it was not until the dawn of the new millennium that he had an epiphany, leading to the creation of his own personal brand, MUSIC4YOU. This venture was much more than a business; it was a platform built to nurture and support unsigned artists, aiding them in taking their career a step further.
Utilising his extensive network of contacts, Eric has been instrumental in helping these artists navigate the often complex and challenging landscape of the music industry. With MUSIC4YOU, he continues to use his passion and connections to uplift artists and bring their music to the world.
