Eric Gordon is a singer-songwriter based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Although he is no foreigner to the Minnesota music scene, Eric gained recognition as a contestant on the FOX television show, American Idol (season 13). Eric released his debut pop/R&B album, Nobody Said That It Was Easy, in spring of 2017. The first single (also the title track), premiered via live performance on the NBC-affiliate, KARE-TV channel in Minneapolis and immediately gained radio airplay on iHeartMedia stations, including Minneapolis/Saint Paul stations, Cities 97.1 and KDWB 101.3. Organically achieving over half a million streams across all platforms, the success of the single (and album) paved the way for Eric to open for such bands as Echosmith, Ocean Park Standoff, and The Revivalists. In summer of 2018, Eric released a brand new follow-up single, "What r u doing?,” debuting the song during a concert for Cities 97.1 Live at the Lake. Eric also released a holiday single, “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” in 2018.
