Eric Sommer, Pop Americana Artist, Now Out of Hospital with Clean Bill of Health and Quickly Gets Back on the Road

Annapolis, MD (PRWEB) April 17, 2014

Eric Sommer is one lucky guy.

In one afternoon this National Touring Artist is rear-ended on Rt. 40 north of Nashville, impact completely totals the touring van, lands in the ER for two days with serious injuries, spend months alone in a motel room recovering — and is back working a killer schedule in under 60 days.

Crazy? Yup, it’s crazy alright, but when an Artist’s drive is that strong, what else can a touring performer do?

And being stuck in a small, East Tennessee Village with no taxi service, no car rental, a small diner that shares a service bay in the only gas station in town and serves frogs legs for lunch is no picnic.

Oh, and it’s a two-mile hike to groceries… there’s a song – or 20 – in there somewhere!

Now able to move around much better, although not completely repaired, Eric Sommer is back doing what he does best.

Mr. Sommer has turned a simple strumming style into what may very well be the next big thing: an explosive and dramatic free-form style and, in the process, he’s become one of the finest free-form pickers anywhere, borrowing from Steve Howe, Doc Watson and turning out a style that is almost impossible to copy, and it is authentically unique.

The outpouring of support – both physical and financial – has been remarkable, and Mr. Sommer’s unique style has been the reason for so much of that. Friends and fans alike, wanting to preserve and continue his remarkable musical journey, have made a remarkable effort to help with medical, financial and transportation issues.

The free-form guitar style utilizes an original and explosive fret approach – using every fret on the neck and re-tuning on the fly, bending the neck and slapping the strings, sound holes, guitar tops and sides.

But Eric Sommer does more – a wide variety of open tunings, a range of guitars and a collection of small, wonderfully obscure vintage guitar amps add to the presentation. And seeing Mr. Sommer work all these elements in a live show is something audiences remember for years.

Additional tour dates and ticketing info can also be found at Pollstar.

One of the noticeable standouts in any Eric Sommer show is the on-the-fly improvisational approach to many of the breaks, solo sections and dramatic lulls in an “audio-wash, wall-of-sound” presentation.

The combination of raw amp feedback cycled with acoustic guitar overtones that seem to merge in the air is a remarkable process to experience.

Mr. Sommer has been taking notes and writing down his thoughts and observations for a number of years – Red Chairs and Black Pancake are the result – two collections of stories, prose and commentary on life, looking around the corners and where to look for happiness and oil-change coupons.

Eric started his musical career in the Boston area and has been a regular player on many national tours and showcases. He worked in Europe for two years on Danish, German and British rock stages, returned to Boston and formed The Atomics, a cult power-pop band in South Boston.

His influences are as diverse as Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, Steve Howe and The Ramones. Mr. Sommer’s current project with power trio “The Solar Flares” shake up Chet Atkins and David Bromberg influences with those of Randy Travis and Elvis Costello – a remarkable mix.

With open tunings, slide guitar, lap-slap tone guitar and a remarkably aggressive fingering style approach, watching Eric Sommer will make you jump out of your seat and holler for joy! There are very few players who have maintained this authentic American style of guitar and Eric Sommer is one of the very best.

Wilmington University Presents Conference on Domestic Threat Considerations

New Castle, Delaware (PRWEB) April 16, 2014

The College of Technology and the College of Social and Behavioral Science of Wilmington University will host leaders in security and information technology from the FBI, InfraGard and the Delaware Department of Homeland Security at a day-long conference from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, May 15, 2014 in the Doberstein Admissions Center of Wilmington University in New Castle, Delaware.

Entitled “Threat Considerations in Today’s Climate,” this intensive program will be taught by subject matter experts from the FBI’s profiler, counter improvised explosive device (IED) and counter terrorism programs along with educators from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. It will address the warning signs and pre-indicators that may be observed in a potentially active shooter like those seen in recent news and found anywhere today from shopping malls to schools and universities.

Registration is $ 25.00, which includes a continental breakfast and lunch. Pre-registration is advised.

Attendees are required to provide their agency/organization identification during on-site registration/check-in and must provide a work email address during on-line registration.

Presentations will concentrate on the pre-behavioral indicators of active shooters, precursor chemicals of IED’s, active shooter/domestic terrorist case studies and high risk behaviors of special needs children. Others will focus on helping those in public settings from academia to retail outlets to be better prepared in the event of an attack or threats of terrorism in addition to identity theft and global security breaches.

This training is recommended for school administrators and guidance counselors, campus police and public safety officers, school resource officers, and those in faith-based organizations. The program is also recommended for retail, commercial and government entities who operate in risk, safety and security positions.

Conference topics include:

    Pre-Indicator Behaviors of Active Shooters

    Pre-Cursor Chemicals of Improvised Explosive Devices

    Domestic Terrorism and Active Shooter Case Studies: Lessons Learned

    Unknown Threats Facing Today’s Youth

Dr. Chris Trowbridge, Dean of the College of Behavioral Sciences, will open the conference. “The University is honored to welcome field experts who will educate attendees and to be a center for raising the level of preparedness for unexpected threats in our community,” said Dr. Trowbridge.

“In light of so many shooting incidents and acts of domestic terror that have happened in recent memory, this conference is timely and critical to anyone in public service,” said Dr. Ed Guthrie, Dean of the College of Technology at Wilmington University. Dr. Guthrie is also president of the Delaware chapter of Infragard, an association of businesses, academic institutions, state and local law enforcement agencies, dedicated to sharing intelligence to prevent hostile acts against the United States.
