Guitarist Eric Zolan was exposed to music through his parents. His mother, an amateur guitarist who loves bluesmen Mississippi John Hurt and Robert Johnson, showed him his first chords. His father, an amateur clarinetist, introduced Zolan to Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and Wes Montgomery. His love for blues, jazz, and the guitar has been the catalyst for a highly fulfilling musical career. Zolan studied at William Paterson University with the likes of Mulgrew Miller, Gene Bertoncini, Steve La Spina, and James Weidman. Upon graduating in 2016, he moved to NYC and has had the great opportunity to work with some of his favorite musicians such as Brian Charette, Winard Harper, Bennie Wallace, Kyle Koehler, Jordan Young, and Diego Voglino. Zolan has performed at such notable venues as Dizzy’s club, Fat Cat, Jule’s Jazz, Showmans, Django at the Roxy Hotel and Bflat TriBeCa.
