The brand new ERIC ROBERSON album is only a matter of weeks away. For release by Dome on August 24, the 17-song album features guest appearances from – among others – Lalah Hathaway, Wayna and T3 from Slum Village.

This is the sixth studio album from America’s #1 independent soul star – winner of the 2008 Best Underground Artist Award voted for by viewers of America’s BETJ TV channel.

It sees him continue his creative association with the likes of Osunlade and Curt Chambers, and begin a new link with UK co-writer/producer Colin Emmanuel.

Eric will be visiting the UK for the album release and will headline two Michael Jackson Tribute nights at London’s Jazz Café on August 29 and 30. Please contact the venue for further details.

In October he returns to Europe for live dates with his band at the following venues:

Oct 7 – Cardiff, Soda Bar
Oct 8 – London, Jazz Café
(Box office tel:0844 847 2514 (24hrs)/restaurant booking 020 7688 8899)
Oct 9 – London, Jazz Café
Oct 10 – Birmingham, The Drum (Box office tel: 0121 333 2444)
Oct 11 – Manchester, Band On The Wall
Oct 13 – Paris, Bizz’Art Club

During his last UK and European shows Eric included a spectacular “Beat It” in his set. For the upcoming October dates this has been replaced by an equally fine version of “P.Y.T.”
