Eric's amazing talent has delighted audiences with impressive performances on piano, voice, sax, guitar, harmonica and dobro. He is an accomplished and versatile musician with an extensive repertoire of classical, jazz, blues, and popular music from the 1920s to today. This artist continues to develop his talent through the sharing and exploration of music.

As a child Williams was enamored with the piano and ragtime specifically, he was the first member of his family to express a musical focus.

Having been influenced by such amazing artists as Ray Charles, Nat King Cole and Sinatra; Eric went on to receive his masters degree in Music Education from Youngstown State University. He has been a professor of music at Yavapai College for over 10 years and continues to help expand the performing arts throughout the Verde Valley.

Stray Cat Strut: An Equinox Concert is Eric Williams second performance at Studio Live. By focusing his efforts on biannual events, Eric is able to expand on previous performances and invent during a six-month incubation period.

"Stray Cat Strut" with feature a variety of music ranging from Swing to Latin, R&B to Boogie Woogie, and Classical to Original works.

The balance provided by the solar calendar during the equinox helps to bring a focus to the music and message that Williams is expressing. In keeping with the "Stray Cat Strut" theme, a portion of the performance proceeds will be donated to the Humane Society of Sedona.
