Eric says, when asked to give a written bio,
“It’s hard to talk about yourself when there is no exchange. I will try to do my best. I don’t like to talk about myself. I prefer my music do the talking for me because “words are shallow when music is hallow”………..When I write a song it’s has to be something I believe in…….I always do things by the “feel” of it. If I don’t feel it, I don’t do it. When you hear my music you can say to yourself, “I’m getting a clear picture of Didorion”
Didorion was born in Europe and of Slavic descent and came to the States and attended school from Kindergarten through High School. After High School he went right to work in restaurants, bars and clubs and was head bartender, head bouncer and waiter.
Didorion’s is, musically, self-taught and took voice lesson for 2 years. He learned composition by listening to classical music, jazz and reading books.
As for influences Didorion says,
“It’s very important to listen to everything, but my foundation is basically Rock/Pop, Motown, Hard Rock and am a sucker for a catchy melody. Some examples – Billy Joel, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Holland-Dozier-Holland, Elton John and Rodgers and Hammerstein. The way I write is, tomorrow is another day, meaning each day doesn’t feel and sound the same. You get to take risk and not be afraid to sound differently.”
Didorion co-founded three bands ”Rocksand”, “Duo Freighter” and “Deep Blue Eyes” and played in small clubs and on the college scene. The band members did this has a hobby and to make extra cash, so, Didorion went solo. His goals are to be recognized as singer songwriter and to hit the Indie Billboard Charts and to write for others.
Didorion would like to play all around the world with top musician as his backup band.
