An independent neo-soul artist from Rahway, NJ, Eric Roberson was originally signed to Warner Bros., having released his single â€œThe Moonâ€� on the major label in 1994. An album was recorded for the label but it was never released, so Roberson returned to Howard University on a musical theater scholarship. After graduating, he came back to music in 2001 with the independently released album The Esoteric Movement. A year later he joined DJ Jazzy Jeffâ€™s A Touch of Jazz production company, kicking off the relationship with a guest shot on Jeffâ€™s album The Magnificent. A songwriting deal with EMI Publishing found him working with the likes of Musiq (Soulchild) and Jill Scott; then in 2005 his second official solo album, The Appetizer, arrived. In 2007 ...Left landed on Robersonâ€™s own Blue Erro Soul imprint, with the album Music Fan First following two years later. Two tracks from the latter album would receive Grammy nominations, with â€œA Tale of Twoâ€� competing for Best Urban/Alternative Performance in 2010 and â€œStillâ€� competing for the same award in 2011. ~ David JeffriesPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
