Eric Skye

Pacific Northwest acoustic guitarist Eric Skye occupies a unique niche between folk, jazz, and blues, between fingerstyle and flatpicking, and between composition and improvisation. A lifetime of eclectic interests and adventuresome exploration culminates into a fully realized and identifiable personal style and tone. He has a wide-ranging body of work, all threaded together with an uncluttered minimalist’s aesthetic, a passion for in-the-moment music making, and a love of pure acoustic tone. Eric has performed live on morning television for NBC and Fox, been featured on National Public Radio and Public Radio International, and performed on many live radio broadcasts all over the U.S. Eric has been featured in magazines such as Guitar Player, Premier Guitar, Fretboard Journal, Acoustic Guitar, Guitar World, Jazziz, Jazz Improv, 20th Century Guitar, Acoustic (UK), Akustik Gitarree (Germany), The Guitar Note, and The Guitar Bench, and was on the cover of Acoustic Guitar in China. In 2011, the renowned Santa Cruz Guitar Company bestowed the rare honor of releasing a signature model guitar, the 00-skye, which has become one of the company’s best-selling guitars.
