Drop-In Session with Eric John Kaiser

Eric John Kaiser

Our surprise snow storm and then the ensuing freezing rain gave many of us an extra day of that long w-end, stuck at home. So, though plans changed up a bit, it didn’t stop Will West. Monday’s planned drop-in guest, Eric, managed his way over to Will’s home studio, and presto! Here we have the great podcast and details on the Peace For Paris benefit coming up 1/9, that you don’t want to miss. 

Peace For Paris PDX




Will invited Eric over for a few songs, and to talk with him about the impact of the Paris attack on Eric’s hometown and himself. Find the info  on the upcoming Vie de Boheme benefit show is below the podcast.

If you can imagine Americana interpreted through a French lens, then you can see (or more precisely

hear) what Eric John Kaiser brings to the table.


Eric John Kaiser may be known as The French Troubadour – but there is so much more to this talented

artist. While his French roots may make him seem exotic, those in the know realize that’s just the

beginning of his story. After doing over 350 concerts in France, Paris native Eric John Kaiser moved to

Portland, Oregon in 2006 following a girl he fell in love with. Since then he has logged close to 10,000

miles each year via air, land and sea. Exploring North America on multiple lengthy tours, he has gigged

his way up through Canada and down through the South, as far as New Orleans and Washington D.C.,

where he performed as an “Artist in Residence” for the Smithsonian Museum. Sometimes driving his

trusty Subaru under the wide Montana sky, sometimes riding the subway under the New York City

canyons… Then jetting across the Atlantic to tour through France… His music has logged as many

miles and picked up accents from across the American landscape: his latest songs resonate now with a

very American rhythm, like bouncing across the vast plains on horseback… some western lap steel

guitar… some dirty roadhouse blues…


Eric John Kaiser has released 4 full length albums and played at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington

DC, the Deyoung Museum in San Francisco, the Blue Nile in New Orleans, the Solidays festival in Paris

and shared the stage with the Welsh super stars the Stereophonics, toured with French star Tété (who has

also appeared as a featuring artist on his album “French Troubadour”), with The Lost Bayous

Ramblers in Lafayette Louisiana, and the French band Revolver. French Rapper Fefe from the

band Saïan Supa Crew also appeared on Eric John Kaiser’s album “L’ODyssée”
