Guitarist, composer, producer and record label owner, Eric Lambert has been pickin' and grinnin' his way into people's hearts for over 40 years. Specializing in the fiery art of flatpicking, he has built a distinguished career writing, performing, recording, and teaching Americana music in and around Chicago, IL and beyond. Traces of rock, folk, bluegrass, country, and blues can be detected throughout his music, delivered with energy, soul, and inspiration. His voice, presence, and precision moves audiences to their feet, while his playful spirit and warm sense of joy makes people feel right at home.

Music education continues to be a mainstay in Eric's life, fulfilling a dream and supporting his mission of helping others learn how to play the guitar, and utilize a variety of guitar styles and techniques. Eric believes teaching music is about more than just giving lessons; it should be a full musical education experience. Even further, he knows music can transform lives. For the past 35 years, he has been professionally teaching music, including the art of flatpicking and bluegrass, which is a style he has become known for. As he puts it, "It is the excitement of the style that originally drew me in years ago."
