Award-winning recording artist, songwriter, and producer Eric Roberson has announced that his Blue Erro Soul Entertainment Company has entered into a distribution partnership with Purpose Music Group and Entertainment One (eOne Music.) On Tuesday, October 11th, Blue Erro Soul, through its newly minted deal with Purpose/eOne Music, released Roberson’s eighth CD, entitled Mister Nice Guy. Roberson, widely recognized as the king of indie soul and a leading example for artists and entrepreneurs alike, has released seven successful albums over the last ten years; all distributed independently by his Blue Erro Soul. He has grown a strong reputation for being a fantastic singer, dynamic performer, charismatic entertainer, and smart businessman to media, multi-genre industry tastemakers, and legions of loyal fans who’ve been the foundation of his success as a completely independent recording artist and label owner. After a Top 40 Billboard hit single – “The Moon” via Warner Bros. Records in 1994 – and several incomplete major label deals, Roberson decided to mold his singing career with his own hands by expanding his flourishing songwriting company (administered by EMI Music Publishing) into a full fledged label. Celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, Roberson manufactured and distributed his first independent album, Esoteric, in 2001.

Now, as Roberson’s popularity and demand for his music has grown exponentially and after forming a long-standing, mutually-respected friendship on the indie soul circuit with George Littlejohn and Russell Johnson of Purpose Records, Roberson has signed his Blue Erro Soul label into a U.S. manufacturing and distribution deal with Purpose, and its partner eOne Music. “This deal was inevitable at some point,” explains Roberson. “As the demand increases with fan requests and expectations to find my music in chain retail stores – as well as my own desire to continue to grow my company in this business of entertainment – partnering with my friends George and Russell, and now Alan Grunblatt and our new friends at eOne, was a great choice for me and my Blue Erro Soul staff. We’re looking forward to what the future holds!”

“Russell and myself have been friends with Eric and the Blue Erro Soul team for years. We have worked together on several projects and have supported each others’ projects in the past,” says Purpose Music Group Co-CEO, George Littlejohn. “We are beyond excited to join forces with Blue Erro Soul along with eOne, and ready to roll up our sleeves to help give honest music the greater exposure that it deserves.” Alan Grunblatt, President of eOne Music, agrees, stating “We are so proud to have signed Eric Roberson. He’s a unique and groundbreaking artist.”
