Eric Leadbetter Bio
Eric Leadbetter was born in the town of Bozeman, MT. His musical career started in 2003 when he recorded his first solo album, Eric’s cosmic kitchen. He then moved to Boulder, CO in 2004 when he started playing out in local coffee shops and small bars. In 2006 he established the rock n roll band, Jive Coulis with some good friends from high school. Since then they traveled to over 20 states performing. Jive was dis-banded in 2017 and Leadbetter Band was Born.
Currently, he lives in Central Oregon and plays gigs constantly. Whether solo, duo, or full band he is always gigging. Last year in 2017 he played 220 plus shows, a personal record. His music is very unique and original, with ghostly echoes of the golden age of rock from the 60s-70s. And it should be, since he draws his musical inspiration from these eras by listening to a vast collection of classic vinyl.
“I want my music to not only reach people’s ears in a sweet and engaging way, but also to challenge the mind and inspire the heart and soul. I have creatively explored music very deeply in my life, and I see no end to the amount of musical wisdom to be gained and understood. It is a real treat for me to be able to share my musical expression with people that are open and willing.”
