Eric Steffensen

Eric is an acoustic rock performer and singer/songwriter from Salt Lake City who often performs in the Second Life virtual world.

Ranging from comical and laugh-out-loud songs to serious heartfelt songs, his voice and acoustic guitar will captivate and carry you through a wide range of emotions. Combining influences from rock, folk, blues and classical, Eric creates a sound that is familiar yet unique. His voice is often compared to the likes of Cat Stevens, John Popper from Blues Traveler and Steven Page from Barenaked Ladies.

Eric's lyrical themes encourage listeners to contemplate their own spirituality, self-improvement and mental awareness. Based on Eric's personal values and philosophies developed while he read tarot in coffee shops his sharply crafted lyrics act as a catalyst between performer and listener. So visual are his lyrics that listeners are compelled to stop and ponder the world from a new perspective.

Eric pours his heart, mind, body, spirit and soul into each of his live performances hoping his audience can take something away from each show to help through their day. Please join us for an opportunity to hear Eric for yourself.

Also taken from Cetus, this looked to me like it belonged in a modern art museum.

When not performing, I enjoy exploring some of the amazing creations that builders come up with in Second Life. This picture is from Cetus, a sim where the architect experiments with new building techniques
INSPIRE Space Park is a place I find myself at occasionally, if only to float among the stars and planets. This picture is the result of me being inspired enough to experiment with Windlights.
Am I falling or am I floating? Is there a panel waiting at the bottom, judging my technique?
This picture from Cetus just doesn't do the build justice.
Also taken from Cetus, trying to see if there's any emotional healing in blue particle art. (There isn't, but I still thought it looked cool)
