Folk rock that strums the heartstrings and feeds the soul. Eric Sorenson, the Toronto-based singer-songwriter behind G3NERIC, writes original songs that are both dark and uplifting. A self-proclaimed ‘melancholic optimist,’ Sorenson’s songs reflect a playfully serious perspective, a striving for light even in the darkness.
Eric performs regularly as a solo artist, as well as in the country-folk duo The Space Between. He has played venues such as The Cameron House, The Opera House, The Rivoli, and Yonge-Dundas Sqaure, and festivals including Canadian Music Week and NXNE.
Sorenson is currently preparing to release his debut album, Directions Home, a concept album that tells the story of a journey from rejection to belonging. Directions Home begins with the angst of adolescence, growing the through the stages of maturation, through love and loss, and arriving home. The album expresses a wide range of emotions through shifts in instrumentation and poetic lyrics. Featuring straight ahead rock numbers, minimalist acoustic tunes, and evocative instrumentals.
