Profile Information

Company Name:
Eric Normand
About Me:
Eric Normand is a professional freelance guitarist and writer living in Nashville Tennessee. He is currently the tour manager, band leader, and lead guitarist for country music artist and songwriter Rhett Akins.

Shortly after his arrival in Nashville in 2002, Eric, a Berklee Alumni and New England native, landed his first touring job as a guitar tech on the Toby Keith Shock N’ Y’ All Tour. Following his stint with Toby, Eric worked as a guitarist on the Honky Tonk Tailgate Party tour playing guitar behind Rhett Akins, Daryle Singletary, Chad Brock, and Jeff Carson nightly. After the breakup of this package tour in 2005, Eric stayed on with Rhett.

Eric has performed in every state in the Continental US as well as performances in Canada, France, and Switzerland. He has worked on the Grand Ole Opry, the Tonight Show, the Jimmy Kimmel Show, and The View, and has performed on stage with Toby Keith, Blake Shelton, Vern Gosden, Jamey Johnson, Colt Ford, Oteil Burbridge (Allman Brothers), Joe Nichols, Trent Tomlinson, Trent Willmon, Andy Griggs, Wade Hayes, Wayne Jackson (Memphis Horns) and Phil Keaggy. Some of Eric’s original compositions have been licensed to the television shows “Real Trees Road Trips”, “The Tommy Wilcox Show”, and the documentary “Chef de Riz” by award winning filmmaker Jeremy Campbell.

In addition to performing on numerous Nashville recording sessions as a freelance musician, Eric works as a producer and engineer in his own recording studio, Music On a Hill. Located 20 minutes west of downtown Nashville, the studio is available for songwriter demos and custom projects.

Eric's second career is that of a freelance writer, writing copy for the Nashville based website design company Just Ducky Designs as well as bios for artists. He is currently writing a book, The Nashville Musicians Survival Manual, which he expects to have completed later this year. Eric is available for live performances, session work, guitar lessons, and writing projects.

Hey Thanks for the add. Not much happening. Just got home from the gym. Tying to keep fighting father time. The road thing has been pretty slow. Been doing some sessions and whatever I need to do. Probably headed out with Lee Ann this summer. Hope all is well with you.
