Eric Dahl is a songwriter from the Pacific Northwest who has also lived and written in Austin, Texas and Athens, Georgia. He studied and published poetry while at the University of Washington and at Oxford University where he won the Isis Poetry Prize. His songs about Eastern Washington and rural Texas often blend elements of folk and outlaw country. His more emotional singer/songwriter recordings based in Seattle have strong rock elements.
Dahl is finalizing his fourth full-length CD with more material from Texas recorded there with his Austin band. Also in the works is a collection of Northwest songs recorded in a rougher, more organic style like they were originally performed in Seattle bars.
