Eric Michael Hopper plays and is sponsored by PRS Guitars, Takamine Guitars, MXL Microphones, Mogami Cables, Dean Markley, Overloud Audio Tools, among others. For those who are wondering, I run my own Facebook, Myspace, and social media sites. As long as I can remember, Ive always been drawn to creating music. Ive been doing this my whole life hoping for the opportunity for people to share this thing thats been calling me. Finally, social media and the internet happened like a Godsend. I feel so happy and blessed to have the support of good people like yourselves on here. I used to have dreams of the big time, stars in my eyes and all that stuff, but you know ... I feel Ive finally found what Ive been looking for. Affirmation. Affirmation and the connection between myself and you all who love music. I am finally beginning to feel satisfied. Satisfied by the opportunity for you all to simply say yes we get it and enjoy it or even no, give it up. But at least feel as though Ive had that chance, and thats enough for me. I dont care about fame and all that, I just hope to be able to make an honest living at this. I guess notoriety is tied into all that though. I work hard at whatever I set my mind to. I hope I can make this work, its been such a huge thing in my life for so long. Other stuff... I enjoy philosophy and physics, things that make you think. That gets on alot of peoples nerves though when I get into that lol. I love epic stories that depict courage and inspire hope for an ideal. I consider myself a reasonable person, although I am not afraid to do whats necessary. Lets leave it at that. Im a kid that grew up playing piano and decided I was gonna be what I wanted, and wanted respect at the same time. Thats hard to get when your young, for kids that want to draw and play piano lol. So I kept myself in shape as well. I had this mind, body and spirit thing going on... Im definitely more laid back now though. So out of that came the other side of me I guess... Im a huge football fan. I love the outdoors and beer. Camping, picnics... man thats what its all about. I swim laps at an olympic pool to stay in shape. Im a pretty simple guy as far as lifestyle goes. I dont need alot, but hey Im grateful for it when I have it. Im working on a new song and I think this opening line kinda says how I been feeling in general these days: Sleep easy, Im gonna find our place... An open sky home, built on faith. Sleep easy, Im gonna find our way... With an open heart beating all on grace..... I hope you like my songs,..
