Eric Wurzelbacher is a Cincinnati based saxophonist with a wide span of musical interests, mainly focused on hard bop and rock. Eric's compositions are influenced by these two genres in order to create songs with intense, concise melodies while still remaining highly improvised and interactive.

Eric is also passionate about teaching; please inquire if you are interested in private lessons on saxophone, clarinet, or flute.
