Q&A: Eeri

in SF Local Bands by

How did you come up with the name?
That’s my name.

How would you describe your sound?

When did you first become interested in playing music?
I’ve always loved to create.

What’s the strangest or funniest thing that’s ever happened to you at a show?
I was once almost not let into a show I was playing. I was in NYC opening a show at Webster Hall. I stepped outside after our soundcheck and the security guard thought I was trying to sneak into the venue without a ticket. I had to have someone let me into the venue 3 minutes before I was supposed to be onstage.

What are you listening to these days?
Meg Myers, she is fantastic.

What are some of your favorite Bay Area music venues?
Ohh I love August Hall the sound is great.

What are some of your favorites hangs in the Bay Area and why?
I like the older theaters; The Castro & the Roxie. Its a bit of a tourist trap but I enjoy the old arcade games at Fisherman’s Warf.

What does music mean to you?
You can be anything you want with music. Its a fantasy come to life.

Why’d you decide to go solo?
Well, I started my own project because it was really just that time for me. My musical tastes and influences have really evolved over time and I did not want to do a “band” again.

What inspires you to write?
My songs are always inspired by encounters I have with real people. Usually, I am trying to make sense of things that have gone wrong and it is therapeutic

What’s your favorite neighborhood in the city and why?
The Tenderloin has sentimental value to me and reminds me of a happy time in my life. Its the first place I really spent a lot of time at in the city. I think it will always be my favorite.

What’s one thing that people would be surprised to find out about you?
I have a huge interest in history. Anything vintage holds my interest.

Is there anything you’d like to plug?
