“I love it. I love who I’m becoming and how this makes me feel. I can do this forever.”
Meet Eri Soul, Atlanta's emerging musical sensation. From her talent with a guitar to her phenomenal voice, Eri is truly a force to be reckoned with. Music has always surrounded her, especially as she grew up in the church.
“Everybody around me just sings, my whole family sings.” Her skills with the guitar started while she was attending Craver Arts. After her classes ended there, Eri continued to teach herself.
Her anticipated EP Emotions, released on April 17th. When asked about the name she replied, “I’m very emotional, I feel everything around me so Emotions just came about from that, from me just being around and acknowledging everything and people or just me trying to be on a higher level of love and just having positivity and all that’s surround me.”
Eri explained the overall production of Emotions further, “Each song on there isn’t a specific emotion, but some are. I’ve been working on it for about a year and a half.
My first song I dropped was optimism and I had to figure out what I was going to do from there. I’ve just been moving so much and trying to really get a feel for my sound and trying to understand it.
So when I had a better understanding of it, I just started choosing the songs that I could improve on.” Looking back, Emotions almost didn’t happen, “It took me a long time to do it because of procrastination and then I didn’t even know if I wanted to really be an artist. I felt like no one was going to listen to the music I created because no one is making music like this.
Despite her doubts, Eri’s love for making music was her motivation to continue sharing her talents with the world and it definitely seems to be paying off. Looking forward Eri has a couple of shows as well as a festival and a concert in June. We hope to continue hearing the beautiful sounds of Eri Soul.
