b. Eric Roberson, 25th September 1976, Rahway, New Jersey, U.S.A.
Eric Roberson hails from Rahway, New Jersey.
He is sometimes referred to by his nickname (his Christian and surname's first two letters) combining to make ‘Erro’.
The abbreviation provided the singer with his record company label name, Erro Records.
Eric released his first Warner Brothers single, ‘The Moon’ in 1994.
He went on to attend Howard University, finalising his studies in Musical Theatre.
He contributed to Jazzy Jeff's debut album, ‘The Magnificent’ in 2002.
Eric then set up his aforementioned own label, Blue Erro Soul, where he released his own material from 2001 onwards (starting with his full-length debut, ‘Esoteric’ that year).
