Eric Cire, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and Grammy nominated producer (Emancipation of Mimi) creates music that moves people. Fusing life's experiences and expressions of passion to capture the sentiments of multiple generations, Eric Cire forms a harmonious union between music and life. Eric Cire is among a select few musical artists and producers who count the drums, strings, and piano as musical tools. As CEO and founder of Cire Entertainment, Eric Cire is one of the music industry's most extraordinary talents.
With the roots of Eric's musical inspiration stemming from his academically musician trained father and his singer mother, Eric had an early appreciation for music. His father would make him spend countless hours studying The Beatles' harmonies, Lionel Ritchie's song structure, and Quincy Jones' music production. He learned soul from the church; and singing gospel allowed the Detroit native the opportunity to show emotion through his talent. However, not convinced Gospel was his calling, Eric fought through the discouragement of his peers in the church and began exploring secular music. Armed with a gift for love-letter writing, Eric relocated to Atlanta to pursue his dreams. He wrote lyrics for the ladies and found temporary interest as a solo act. But with labels using physical standards as an excuse to ignore his phenomenal talent, his dreams of being a solo act did not come easily. Living in hotels and struggling to realize his deserved success, Eric pressed on. Months later, Eric's production talents began to peak the interest of the music industry. And performing at the BMI Urban Nights showcase gave him all the confirmation he needed to know that as an artist he could touch people's lives by his words, voice, and passion.
As a producer, Eric Cire has and continues to generate music for artists such as 3LW(The Barbershop Soundtrack), Farrah Franklin (Destiny's Child), Nicole "Nicci" Gilbert (Brownstone), and newcomer hip hop and R&B recording artist "NIA" as well as his own Cire Entertainment artists!
Inspired by his daughter, T'Arica, and his father's dreams deferred, Eric is fervently chasing his goals of becoming a notable contributor to the world of music. Currently re-focused on his career as a solo artist and with audiences hungry for his work, Eric Cire delivers his debut CD (ericcire.com), a full collection of striking new songs released on Cire Entertainment.
"...Eric Cire seems to have that life experience that lends a lightening bolt spark of creativity that makes you FEEL the music. This creativity in feeling combined with his seemingly effortless vocal arrangements raises the bar for independent artists..." DJ JJ (urbansoulnation.com)
