Eriq began singing at the tender age of six on the Wayland Baptist Church Choir; where his grandmother was mother of the church. As his gift for singing became clearer, he began studying voice briefly at The Baltimore School for the Arts under the late great Nathan Carter. Eriq later met up with Jerry Lattisaw (brother of 80's teen star Stacy Lattisaw) and formed the R&B group Me 2 U. The group went on to sign a major deal with RCA Records and scored two Billboard charting singles, "Want you Back," and All Night." A few years later, Eriq formed another group, Diversiti, who signed with Global EMI Records and began touring the states. Throughout the years, Eriq has had the opportunity to work with some of the Entertainment Industry's greatest talents. From Me 2 U's video directed by "The Cosby Show's Malcom Jamal Warner (with a cameo by Wendy Williams), touring the United States and Europe with SWV and Intro, to appearing on BET, Apollo, and Jerry Lewis Telethon, his lifelong dream were coming true. One of the biggest highlights in his career was opening for Stephanie Mills and The Isley Brothers at the 1st Marina Arena in his hometown and singing the National Anthem for the Washington Wizards and The Baltimore Orioles, Eriq was ecstatic as the Anthem is one of his favorite songs to sing. As Eriq's star continued to rise, he ventured out as a solo artist. His first gig was working with world-renowned saxophonist Kim Waters, singing background vocals on his hit CD "Someone to Love You" and opening for Fantasia. With new music on the horizon and just like some of the greats who have inspired him like Stevie Wonder, Babyface, Whitney Houston, Andrea Bocelli, Daryl Coley and Chris brown, he's bringing you that classic feel to POP and R&B that is sure to stand the test of time. Eriq believes, his intentions play a major role in the outcome of his success.
