Award-winning musical satirist and songwriter Eric Schwartz has been playing music and comedy venues nationally for fifteen years (The Improv, The Comedy Store, The Bottom Line…).
He has composed for and performed in various Satiristas shows spearheaded by Paul Provenza, as well as “The Bad Boys Of Comedy” with Bobby Slayton, Jim Norton et. al. His songs have been sung by Ronny Cox, Holly Near and Van Dyke Parks.
Schwartz is possibly the only artist in the history of the world to get raves from Gloria Steinem and Hustler Magazine, Eric’s songs go from the political to the profane, sometimes both (see the International Songwriting Competition’s best comedy song of the year, “Clinton Got A Blowjob”.)
Eric’s latest CD release The Aristocrat, which Paul Zollo (Songwriters on Songwriting) calls “A Comic Treasure” and The U.K.’s Rock’n’Reel magazine calls “beautifully produced and perfectly executed,” contains “There’s A Picture…”, currently in rotation on the nationally syndicated The Bob and Tom Show. Schwartz has also garnered radio play on stations as diverse as Howard Stern’s 100, Raw Dog Radio, The Ed Schultz Show and All Things Considered.
After that? Web series in the making, more videos, and another CD about to go to mastering.
Schwartz is known as much as a kick-ass live entertainer, singer and multi-instrumentalist as a spot-on writer and recording artist, so be sure to catch him when he tours through…
