Album Notes
Emerging from the emerald twilight of Portland Oregon, sepiatonic troubadour Eric Stern, the Northwest’s own premiere operatic tenor, accordionist, pianist, composer and consummate showman continues his alchemical and absinthe-tinged forays into the wee hours of the morning, on steamships, and in exotic ports of call, in London alleyways and Marseille brothels, to concoct Steampunk Cabaret.

Eric Stern has appeared on NPR and performed at the Kennedy Center, The Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, Joe’s Pub in NYC, , throughout the Northwest, and internationally from Portland to Paris to Poland. Stern has appeared with Pink Martini, Balkan BeatBox, Jason Webley, The Decemberists, Devotchka, Unwoman, and many others.

“Stern has found an exuberant and satisfying place where operatic vocal technique and popular idioms intersect… while also exposing unlikely audiences to the visceral pleasures of a Bel Canto voice.”

~ The NY Press

“Eric Stern, a mustachioed 36-year-old operatic tenor and accordion player…has a back story nearly as bohemian as the music he plays.”

~ The Washington Post

“…maniac, razor-sharp…delightfully nuts.”

~ The Toronto Star

“To hear Stern intone the introduction to “Ravella” in the stentorian tones of a carnival barker is to hear a man whose love of the absurd is matched only by his complete lack of inhibition.”

~ New York Forward
