GRAMMY Award-nominee, singer, songwriter, and producer Eric Roberson, continues to break boundaries as an independent artist in an industry dominated by major labels, manufactured sounds and mainstream radio. Described as the original pioneer of the independent movement in R&B/soul music, Eric has achieved major milestones in his career, from being a successful songwriter and producer for notable artists such as Jill Scott, Musiq Soulchild, Dwele, Vivian Green and countless others, as well as headlining sold out tours across the country.
A constantly colorful and “changing pattern or sequence of objects or elements” defines the essence of a Kaleidoscope, which in comparison describes the dynamic and critically-acclaimed band, Killiam Shakespeare. Led by music duo Steve Mckie (drummer/producer) and Corey Bernhard (keys/producer), the band is comprised of a unique collective of diverse musicians (electric guitar Simon Martinez and Anthony Decarlo, electric bass Dwayne Moore and Dre Pinckney, and Aaron Draper on percussion), that formed a creative element musically fused with the various genres they are influenced by, such as jazz, funk, hip-hop, R&B and soul. The name “Killiam Shakespeare” is derived from two perspectives: “Killiam” an inventive word coined by Mckie and Bernhard, as an expression or urban vernacular to forcefully impact the airwaves musically, by “slaying it”. The second perspective, “Shakespeare” is from their intellectual influence by the historic playwright, William Shakespeare from his famous quote from “Romeo & Juliet” Go wisely and slowly. Those who rush stumble and fall. of their own, are Corey Bernhard, Steve McKie and Chris Turner.
