Eric Steiner has been a grantwriter for the Seattle Indian Center since 1990, but his interest in music dates from his parents playing George Shearing, Elvis Presley and Lionel Hampton records on a stereo that seemed to take up half the living room. Ericís life changed forever when Chicago-area clubs let teens in matinee shows as long as the artists wouldnít swear. His earliest club memories include the late Steve Goodman and Chicago folkies Bonnie Koloc, David Bromberg and Bryan Bowers. Ericís musical tastes range from modern American classical to all types of blues with a bit of world music (even Madagascarís top ten) thrown in. When not dreaming about a reunion of The Clash, Eric runs 5Ks and half-marathons and writes about his running experiences in Northwest Runner magazine. A job in movies brought Eric to Seattle from Chicago in 1980, and heís finally getting used to the rain.
