Singer-songwriter/musician Eric Jennings of Atlanta GA.ʻs ‘Geisha Hit Squad’ has done just about everything from butcher Alaskan king crab two hundred miles from the Russian border, run a dispenser in a cough drop factory, work in a hundred capacity dog shelter, and become a Residential Assistant in a high profile substance abuse treatment center while pursuing his musical career. Musically he delivers songs that are introspective, witty and thought provoking.  Many of his songs are “multi-dimensional” and open to the listener’s interpretation.  He brings a fresh, innovative approach with a new perspective to his songwriting.  Influences range from Jay Farrar, Bob Dylan, Radiohead, Peter Gabriel and Neil Young. Originally from eastern North Carolina, Eric spent his early musical career as a part of the local music scene in the Raleigh-Durham/Chapel Hill area.  At the time the area was truly a music mecca, led by such bands as The Veldt, The Connells, Dillon Fence, Archers of Loaf, The Sex Police, Polvo, and Johnny Quest.   For over three years he toured the east coast as lead guitarist for Reggae band The Amateurs.  From there he moved on to join Raleigh, NC neo-psychedelic, alternative rock band Drivetrain. In 2003 Eric moved to Atlanta and played in power trio Black Light District.  After three years in BLD Eric decided it was time for various reasons to move on.  The result was a solo project called Geisha Hit Squad.  2009 and 2010 found Eric on the road traveling from Miami, FL to Raleigh, NC playing solo-acoustic shows.

 In the second half of 2011 Eric logged over 70 shows in 12 states supporting his sophomore CD ‘Experimenting With Mirrors’. He crossed the US hitting venues in Texas, California, Oregon, Washington State, Nevada, Colorado, Nebraska, Iowa and Kansas.
