The timbre of his velvety-sonorous organ, which is unmistakably close to the great idol, allows him to sing himself not only under the skin but also directly into the hearts of his audience. Backed by A-Class musicians, this show highlight is sure to be a feast for your senses.
ERIC CONLEY and his orchestra are taking care of their responsibilities full of passion and admiration for the icon of an entire generation – paying a worthy tribute to a great musician.
ERIC CONLEY was born in Arlington, Georgia on August 15, 1962. Being born into a nationally known gospel family, Eric was immersed in music from the start. At eleven years old, young Eric started singing in several successful touring gospel attractions, which gave him instant recognition in gospel and soul music. With a keen ear for pitch and harmony, Eric quickly absorbed the fundamentals of music; being able to listen to a musical arrangement and play it immediately on several different instruments. He was very active in the Atlanta, Georgia music scene and was talented enough to accompany soul artist Peabo Bryson as one of his background vocalists.
In high school, ERIC CONLEY enjoyed sports, but, inspired by his musical hero, the great Barry White, he worked harder on becoming a confident musician. At the University of Maryland, where he majored in business, he refused a sport scholarship in order to better concentrate on his studies. After college, Eric was stationed in Germany with the US Army, receiving an honorable discharge in 1987. Once out of the Army, Eric took on his new persona as Central Europe’s hottest soul singer. After performing hundreds of concerts singing the R&B Soul classics of the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, Eric decided to hang his hat on what he does best . . . sing the music of the legendary Barry White. With Eric’s unique voice, he quickly discovered that there was no other vocalist in the world capable of so faithfully emulating Barry White’s “Voice of Love”.
With Europe’s infatuation for Soul and R&B, ERIC CONLEY became an overwhelming success. After he formed the “Unlimited Love Orchestra”, Eric was called to entertain Europe’s most elite audiences. Today, the Barry White Experience starring ERIC CONLEY tours the world and helps keep the music of Barry White alive in our hearts.
