Eric Valentine


Eric Valentine is a busy drummer. Since moving to Los Angeles four years ago, he has been going non-stop. It all started with his first tour baptism with legendary singer Patti LaBelle. Today he has racked up a solid resume of collaborations with artists such as Jeff Lorber, Dionne Warwick, Stevie Wonder, Erikah Badu, Kirk Whalum, Jonathan Butler and of course, Steve Lukather. To say that he’s just a drummer is selling him short. He’s a multi-dimensional musician. Take his 2003 solo jazz project, Eric Valentine’s Jazz Impressions. He plays bass guitar, keyboards, drums and also produces. For those who have seen him play live, they’ll tell you that Valentine is a drummer who adds his vibe to everything he hears. Take it from us, we’ve seen him play and he can steal a show. Inside MusiCast welcomes an artist that has only begun a huge career, Eric Valentine.

Eddy, Rick, ..Another captivating conversation. I'd heard the name Eric Valentine in the past but didn't know much more. Now I'm a fan. Guys, Inside Musicast is such a smash hit. I'm once again anxiously looking forward to the next show. Long Live Inside Musicast.
