    Eric Moore was born in 1982 in Stockton, California.
    By the tender age of 18 months old he began his connection with rhythm by beating pots and pans in his mother’s kitchen.
    It was clear very early on for Eric and his family just where his passion lay. Eric grew up, musically, in the family's local church.
    It's there that he learned the craft of musical expression and honed his skills behind the drum kit.
    In 2004 Eric began touring with R&B masters Sly And The Family Stone, that same year the Internet sensation 'Gospel Chops' was launched with Eric featured on the drum kit alongside industry heavyweights Tony Royster Jnr and Thomas Pridgen on the 'Shed Sessionz Volume 1' DVD.
    This event would later establish a movement in the world drumming community that is still poignant today and further cement Eric Moore's name as an up-coming force in the international drumming industry.
