Eric Volta

Cosmic, psychedelic & extraordinary, ERIC VOLTA’s music is as far out as the man behind it. The architect responsible for one of 2013’s biggest records – ‘Love Your Illusion’ has a unique story to tell. One that is backed with years of hard work and a humbling attitude that has invited people and circumstances into his journey that have lead to this moment. In literature a ‘volta’ is the moment in a sonnet when everything changes – where the writer turns full circle, switching viewpoint. Without intention, this is the path Volta has naturally chosen to walk and in doing so, has created onto himself something quite unique. Volta is often looked at as someone who thinks outside the box. He is a native Londoner who grew up travelling, spending the first 20 years of his life wandering through Europe, the Middle East & South East Asia. His varied upbringing and multi cultured exposure helped to fuel his diverse artistic and musical curiosity. Diving into the depths of his conscious & sub-conscious mind is what Volta is all about. Pushing his endurance in the studio to reach a state of mind that is fragile and void of inhibition. The results are productions that are honest, clever, elegant, grand and yet understated in their achievement.
