Allow me to introduce myself…

I hail from the charming coastal enclave of Cortez, situated along the Gulf Coast in southwest Florida. I’m one of three brothers, with an older sibling and a twin, and our upbringing was steeped in the saltwater culture of our seaside community. From a young age, the allure of the ocean captivated me, sparking passions for surfing, fishing, and diving, but it was music that truly became my calling. I infused my country melodies with an island vibe, and began writing my own music and lyrics. At just twelve, I picked up a guitar, and by fourteen, I was already gracing stages with my soulful tunes.


Sharing the limelight with country luminaries like Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, and Jake Owen, among others, has been a highlight of my musical journey. My accolades include clinching the Colgate Country Showdown titles for both Central Florida and the entire state in 2007. The following year, I earned the prestigious honor of being named Kenny Chesney’s “Next Big Star” for the Tampa area, seizing the stage before a crowd of 13,000 at the Ford Amphitheater. As a Nashville Recording Artist, my track “I Can’t Help But Smile” soared to number 64 on the Nashville Music Row Breakout Charts. In 2015, upon returning from Nashville, I founded The Eric Von Band, delivering a dynamic Florida country rock experience that’s as electrifying as it is unforgettable.

I have also donated my time and talent to numerous charitable causes such as The American Red Cross and The American Cancer Society, just to name a few. Whether it’s lending my voice to fundraising events or performing at benefit concerts, giving back to my community and supporting those in need has always been important to me. It’s my way of using music to make a positive impact beyond the stage, spreading joy and hope wherever I can.


From the tranquil shores of Cortez to the bright lights of Nashville and beyond, my musical journey continues to evolve, fueled by a passion for storytelling and a love for the stage. Welcome to the world of Eric Von – where every note resonates with the soul of the Sunshine State.
