Singer-songwriter, producer-composer Eric Sommer has quite an interesting history, having grown up in Bankgkok, Thailand. The traditional Thai spiritual music, combined with a love for his father’s American folk records and his acoustic guitar, engrained eclectic influences as Sommer began writing his own songs at a young age. Decades later, after performing and living all over Europe, Sommer hit success with The Atomics, a cult power-pop band from Boston. With the Fabulous Piedmonts, “North Carolina’s Americana Standard” (this guy gets around!), Sommer is once again front and center, recanting his cleverly crafted tales and insights, with a group of musicians who allow him to shine.
