Eric's song "Have You Ever Loved a Woman" was featured on the channel 'Don's Tunes' on YouTube and has over 100,000 views. While Heideman has multiple roots influences and plays a variety of styles, Blues Blast Magazine said “[His release 'Out Of Time'] is one heck of an ‘experience,’ a la Hendrix and other acid rockers.”  View “Have You Ever Loved a Woman” on Don’s Tunes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kG9mu7e-I0 Read Full Album Review on Blues Blast Magazine http://www.bluesblastmagazine.com/eric-heideman-out-of-time-album-review/ This fiery young performer is being mentored by JW-Jones, winner of Best Guitarist at the 2020 International Blues Challenge, and was invited to perform with Jones in Las Vegas in October 2021. Eric Heideman will record his breakthrough record in 2022 with a team of Grammy, Blues Music Award, and International Blues Challenge winners.  "This is going to be my most exciting release yet, and I am thrilled to work with such a critically acclaimed team," says Heideman. "I am going to make the most soulful and high-quality record I've made, and in a big studio where legends like B.B. King, Junior Wells, Dr. John, Taj Mahal, Mavis Staples, Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits), Derek Trucks, and Leon Russell have recorded. The list of artists that have made big records there is incredible." Co-Producer JW-Jones says "We are going to bring out the very best of Eric's abilities. I have been working with him weekly for over eighteen months and he's just getting better and more refined every session. I can't wait for music fans to hear this breakthrough release!"
