The Q&A with Eric

Q: Tell us about your music. What kind of music do you like to make?

I feel like the most interesting aspect of my music is that you never know what genre you are gonna get. You can look at a title and be like “Oh, this is gonna be a slow ballad.” And then the song plays, and it's heavy, rock, upbeat. A lot of my supporters usually say: “Eric, what genre is your music? What do you classify your sound as?” I feel like the day that they answer that question or that they don't have that question anymore, I have messed up. I like not being in a box. I like not being “Oh, that's Eric, the R&B singer. That’s Eric the pop artist.” I don't like that. So I like that people usually hear a couple of songs and be like “I only listened to two songs, Eric, but both of those songs were so different. I listened to your album, and I feel like I listened to a bunch of different artists at one time,” if that makes sense. And I want to keep that there with my music. And that's how I classify music as. It’s whatever it is at the moment.

Q: How does your self-care routine help your mental health & keep you creative?

My self care routine helps my mental health and overall creativity by getting my emotions out. I like to verbally say if I'm going through anything or if something happened in the previous day that I didn't like. I try to verbally say what I’m gonna do differently or what I want to change so that the bad stuff doesn't happen anymore, or the bad thoughts, or the bad feelings don't come back. So it's all about verbally getting it out there, and through my music, through me thinking during my skincare routine.

Everybody might not agree with this, and that is completely fine - But I feel if I look good on the outside, my outer appearance, AKA my skin is up to par and it looks good, then some way, somehow I feel better on the inside, if that makes sense. I don't want to look in the mirror and be like “God damn. Ooooh yeesh!” I wanna look in the mirror and be like “Oh, I look good today!” And that's gonna also set the tone for my day.

Q: Tell us about your other pursuits besides music.

Outside of music, I have a lot of things I pursue that bring joy to my heart. I do story times, covers, concerts.
I never would have thought in a million years TikTok would be my most followed platform and the app I use the most, but I enjoy every minute of it. It’s addicting. I’m obsessed. I enjoy making videos, watching other peoples’ videos.
On Youtube, I host a game show. It’s called “Game Night.” It’s me and my friends in a Zoom setting. People watch us play games. It’s a time to unwind and have a good time with the people you love.

Q: Talk about your relationship with your sexuality. What does it mean to be asexual, in your own words?

My relationship with my sexuality is overall comforting and securing because for so long, people were putting their assumptions of what they thought my sexuality was onto me. And at that time, I didn’t know what being ace or asexual even was. I didn’t know the term. So to not know what you are and to have so many people barking at you, what they think, how you act, what they think you are, and to not know what you are and kind of have to conform to what they're saying. And then finally reading and introducing yourself with the term that is you is so - it’s just comforting knowing I found me, if that makes sense.

Q: Why is it important to see representation of all kinds of sexualities?

Having representation of every sexuality is damn sure important because there are so many people that feel there’s not enough people that relate to my sexuality, so it can’t be real, or maybe this is not what I am. But to have people that are coming out and saying that I am “this,” or I am “this,” that lets other people know: you’re not crazy. You’re not insane. You’re not alone. This is a real thing. Hi, this is me. I relate in this way with you. And sometimes people just need somebody, whether it be on a big platform or on a small platform, they just need somebody that they can relate to in a certain way so that they don't feel isolated or that there’s something wrong with them feeling that way because somebody else feels that way.

Q: What do you “lust” for?

I lust for connecting with people. I love having deep conversations with my friends or strangers. I love looking people in their eye and hearing their life story and what they went through and what they're going through now: their high points, their low points. I just love listening to people talk, but while making eye contact. It’s something about eye contact.
