Live Music: Eric Knutson

Born and raised in Alaska, Eric followed an early love of music where it led. He earned a degree in classical guitar in Colorado, then ended up in Nashville. After a few years as a guitar-slinger for hire, he landed a steady gig as a staff writer at a small publishing company on music row. He wrote piles of songs and had the opportunity to learn from some of the best writers in a town devoted to the craft.

Recently, Eric and his family jumped at the opportunity to move to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. After years of living in the city and writing songs for other people, he is delighted to be digging into the fertile soil of the Charlottesville music scene, and figuring out how to write songs for himself.
