About Eric John Kaiser Band


Eric John Kaiser, billed as "Portland's French Troubadour," delivers a modern pop-rock sound fusing rock, hip-hop and reggae wrapped in sophisticated French lyrics. (Think Manu Chao meets the 1969 Rolling Stones.) He arrived to the creativity-soaked environs of Portland from his native Paris three years ago with more than 350 performances to his credit (including the Solidays Festival, La Scène Bastille and Fête de la Musique), in addition to a successful career as a documentary filmmaker and Parisian radio personality.

Since landing in America, he has released two full-length albums - the first, L'Odyssée, was recorded at the Paris studio of Philippe Baïa (producer for Sony Music/V2 Music), and the second, French Troubadour, was recorded in Portland at Type Foundry Studio (The Decemberists, Spoon, M-Ward, Jolie Holland). In 2009 he opened for multi-platinum selling UK supergroup Stereophonics at Portland's Wonder Ballroom. Eric returns to France yearly for shows in addition to touring throughout the United States as well as Ireland, Hong Kong and Australia.
