Born in New Orleans and blind since birth, Eric Warren began playing guitar at the age of ten. He was schooled on the East Coast and moved to NYC in his early twenties to pursue his career in music. He began working as a sideman and studio musician while simultaneously honing his composition and jazz skills.

Eric has had the privilege to study with renowned musicians such as fusion master Ray Gomez and pianist Patty Boun. He made his professional recording debut in 1980 with Lynn Messenger and has shared the stage with notable artists including Donald Fagen, Phoebe Snow, Emir Deodato, Charles Otis, Les Paul, Dr. John and Bobby McFerrin, Jorma Kaukonen (Jefferson Airplane), David Bromberg, Robben Ford, Levon Helm (The Band), Jimmy Vivino (Conan O'Brien Show), Rik Emmett and Bernard Purdie.

Eric recently released his debut CD, "Velvet Edge", which combines smooth jazz with a bluesy, rock & roll tone. This style is reminiscent of his musical experiences gathered from New Orleans to New York. "Velvet Edge" includes performances by jazz pianist Marc Puricelli, bassist Gene Torres, drummer Robin Gould and percussionist Fred Wolcott and was successfully released by radio personality, Jim Kerr, to a receptive crowd at NYC's Le Bar Bat.

In an interview with New York radio host, Joey Reynolds, Eric was joined by Blues Legend and friend, Hubert Sumlin (of Howlin' Wolf fame). As Eric and Hubert played live acoustic to Joey's syndicated audience; they inventively brought listeners out of a world of genre labeling into a world of listening.
