The funk of Mraz, the energy of The Goo Goo Dolls, and the eloquence of Mayer is what many describe as the music of Erik DiNardo. This Boston-born singer-songwriter prides himself on being unique and the way in which his musical career sprung has been anything but normal. For years he penciled his lyrics to life’s experiences and taught himself advanced guitar techniques, and quite naturally, Erik’s artistic talents blossomed. From Amherst College to a year of professional hockey and then Berklee College of Music, Erik spent his free time playing guitar and writing songs. As his 2007 debut album Turning Me Loose, produced by Chris Keup (Jason Mraz, Jonathan Rice, Josh Kelley) and engineered by Stewart Myers (Lifehouse, Mandy Moore) reaches its national audience, he continues to play renowned venues such as The Avalon (Boston), The Berklee Performance Center, Hotel Cafe (LA), The Paradise, and The Cutting Room (NYC).
