He began playing piano at 5, heavily influenced by low country church music in his family and switched to saxophone in middle school, and\ went to Oberlin College to study music,\ receiving a BA in jazz performance in 2002.

Since then, he has played in multiple bands, composed and arranged music for numerous projects while also pursuing and completing medical education. He is also currently a radiologist here in Savannah.

Eric Jones was born in Moultrie, Georgia, and started to play piano by ear at the age of five. At 11, Eric began studying trumpet. At 16 he started formal lessons on piano and within two years, he was awarded a piano scholarship to Andrew College. Eric went on to pursue his education at Armstrong Atlantic State University, studying under Dr. Kevin Hampton, graduating with a B.A. in Piano. In addition to teaching private lessons, composing and arranging, he completed his Masters in Composition from Georgia Southern University, where he studied under Dr. Martin Gendelman. Eric has worked with many prominent artists including Grammy Awardwinning Esperanza Spalding, Stewart Copland of the Police and Keith Miller of the Metropolitan Opera.
