Eric Silver

A multi-instrumentalist with guitar, mandolin, violin, banjo, bass and piano as a few of his tools, Eric Silver has toured and/or recorded with artists ranging from country stars The Dixie Chicks and Shania Twain, jazzers David Grisman and Victor Wooten to pop legends Cyndi Lauper and Donna Summer. His playing can be heard on recordings from Keith Urban to superstar Shania Twain’s 40-million selling album, Come On Over. His songs have appeared on over 15 million albums. Silver has written hits for artists like Diamond Rio, Michelle Wright and the Dixie Chicks, who took his song, “Without You,” to number one on the Billboard charts. These songs have earned him five ASCAP awards and one SOCAN award.

Silver enjoyed a musical childhood in Greensboro, N.C., inspired by everyone from The Jackson 5 and James Taylor, to Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs. The day after finishing high school, he packed his car and headed to Nashville, TN. He worked as a road musician for several years, then started focusing on the Nashville studio scene, eventually landing high profile gigs as a studio player with artists like Urban, Twain and Martina McBride. Meanwhile, his songwriting was starting to take off with cuts from a variety of artists, including a hit single for Diamond Rio (“This Romeo Ain’t Got Julie Yet”). After hearing his songs, Silver, was encouraged by then Warner/Reprise president, Jim Ed Norman, to try his producing skills. Projects followed with Neal McCoy, Ricochet, hit song-writer Anthony Smith and Canadian songstress, Michelle Wright.

These days Silver has gone global, co-writing the hit songs “In Pieces” for Australian rockers, Shannon Noll and “Blood and Bone” with Wes Carr. In collaboration with Brazilian producer/A&R executive Ricky Bonadio, Silver has landed some 70 cuts with various Brazilian artists. He spent time in Sao Paulo, appearing as a Portuguese speaking judge, on a country music-based “American Idol”-like television show called “Country Star”, which attracted over 10 million viewers a night and spawned a hit CD, which Silver co-produced.

Since 2007, Silver has been the most recorded American song-writer in Brazil and his work there led to the release of his own solo album, “When You’re Here”, in 2012. He has released two singles to Brazilian radio to date, the first featuring Brazilian rocker and lead singer of the Grammy winning band, NX Zero, Di Ferrero. He arranged and played violins for recent projects by million-selling Brazilian pop-rock sensations Titas and NX Zero as well as recent projects by Negra Li and Fiuk. He also appears as featured vocalist on NX Zero’s “A Melhor Parte De Mim .02” (nominated for a Latin Grammy on their live 10 year anniversary album), with rapper, Tulio Dek and with country singer, Nathalia Siqueira. He just released a duet of the pop classic, “Epitafio”, with Titas member, Sergio Britto.

With his South American success, an active recording schedule and new songs being released in the U.S., Canada, Australia and Brazil, Eric Silver may be busier than ever, but he feels more like he’s just getting started. “I’m starting to understand what I’m doing” he says. “I’ve been blessed with many opportunities in my life, and want to keep improving and keep doing it”.
