Eric Fischer was born in Gainesville, Florida on February 23, 1981. A classically trained pianist, he began his study of the piano at the age of seven and started composing original music while still in high school. He completed course work for a BA in business administration from the University of Florida, graduating with honors in 2002. When in college, he received formal vocal training, and he was influenced by a variety of musical styles including rock, r&b, jazz and new age. In February 2003, Eric got a job with Carnival Cruise Lines as a piano bar pianist/singer after building an extensive repertoire of cover songs from a variety of musical genres including rock, pop, r&b, hip hop and country. Since then, he has performed on six cruise ships as well as at numerous venues throughout the U.S. Eric's CD "Epiphany" is a soul-stirring collection of original piano instrumentals. From the emotional and dramatic title track, to the whimsical yet wistful 'Lost in Twilight,' from the film noir inspired 'Shadows,' to the spacey, richly textured 'Beyond the Stars,' and from the joyously reflective 'A Day of Grace,' to the melancholy mood of 'Autumn Rain,' every track on this CD offers listeners something new and ear-catching while keeping an overall mellow mood.
