Out folk-rock singer Eric Himan to play Bill's Filling Station on Feb. 11

Got this note from singer Eric Himan, who'll be performing 10 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 11 at Bill's Filling Station in Fort Lauderdale:

Eric-015 Thumbcrown Records Proudly Presents the ResoNation Tour of Nationally Touring out Folk-Rocker, Eric Himan!

Wednesday, February 11th - 10pm - at Bill's Filling Station (1243 NE 11th Ave)

Eric Himan is Back and "In Demand"!

Eric Himan is so grassroots, his face is green, though his music tells a different story. Without the help of record labels, booking agents, publicists, or management, Eric Himan is touring to more places, getting great press coverage, and still has time to run his record label, Thumbcrown Records, home to his six studio albums. He just released his newest, Resonate, and has five years of relentless touring in the US under his belt.

Magazines in the LGBT community have covered Eric's journey extensively including: The Advocate, OUT Magazine, Instinct, and Genre.  Newspapers such as the Boston Herald, Pittsburgh-Post Gazette, and Phoenix New Times interviewed him to find out what makes this work horse stay in the game. Fender Guitars even recognized his talent by endorsing him as a featured artist and also sponsored a Fender Acoustic Guitar Give Away contest on his 2008 ResoNation Tour. 

Eric has also been a favorite on Sirius Radio's OUTQ Channel and his music videos began heavy rotation on MTV's owned LOGO Channel. This led to a nomination for music artist this year at the NewNowNext Awards where he appeared alongside Cyndi Lauper, Project Runway's Christian Syriano, Lady GaGa, and pop sensation, Leona Lewis.

His music draws comparisons to male artists such as Maroon 5 and John Mayer but also female singer-songwriters, Ani DiFranco and Tracy Chapman. He is on his way to your town and you would be a fool to miss this much charisma. He will have you singing along to his songs till your blue in the face, or should we say green.
