Eric ‘EQ’ Young is a musician of honor and integrity, as well as an incredible showman and talent. In a world of “flash in the pan” artists and trendy quick-fix disposable pop culture, EQ is as solid as they come. He is a rare musician who connects with his audience on a personal level, putting smiles on faces is what he loves to do. His career has expanded to a new level of industry recognition and Billboard-standard professionalism, with worldwide performing experience.

There’s no doubt that Eric “EQ” Young knows how to get funky. He has a slap bass technique inspired by the great Larry Graham and years on the road as Confunkshun’s bass player & secret weapon. Eric is now known as one of the industry’s most extraordinary bass sensations, gaining the interest of Charlie Wilson, with whom he is currently touring.
