  • Biography Eric Apoe · vocals and guitar The experience of Eric Apoe is a walk through a cinematic time capsule, his lyrical masterworks chill the soul and enlighten the mind. Comparisons to Tennessee Williams, Johnny Mercer, Mark Twain, Hank Williams, Dickens or Dylan are as appropriate as Billie Holiday, Eric Burden or Bob Marley. A Seattle born songwriter, composer and musician, with a genre blending musical aptitude that spans Jazz, Symphonic, Rock and Folk. Apoe spent a number of years touring with Cajun Fiddler, Doug Kershaw, developing a lifelong passion for American Roots music. As a staff writer for Chappell Music, Apoe co-wrote and worked alongside Tim Harden (If I was a Carpenter, Reason to Believe, Misty Roses), and Ron Davies, (It Ain't Easy, recorded by David Bowie). He also gained support and encouragement from two music industry legends, Tom Dowd and John Hammond Sr. To date Apoe has released 5 CD’s with his band ‘Eric Apoe and They’ and is working his 6th album, along with producing a Pacific North West tribute to Ron Davies, due out in the spring of 2011. Currently, Apoe is writing with Saar Liven, an Israeli singer/songwriter and producing a CD for Tommy Dean, a young Seattle songwriter who is wise beyond his years. Eric Apoe’s years of dedication and craftsmanship are clearly hewn into his pieces, with an ever adapting style and constant refinement that speaks to the heart of a true musician and rings in the soul of the listener. With poetic force and humorous paradox, Apoe is a Leonard Cohen for the Age of Unreality. Eric Apoe regularly performs in the Seattle area.
