WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL ONLINE HOME OF THE AUTHOR AND MUSICIAN, ERIC KIEFER.
WIPE YOUR FEET ON THE CARPET, AND COME ON IN!
Eric Kiefer is an award-winning wordsmith, a modern-day troubadour and a 15-year factotum.
Apparently, the dude has a way with words. His debut novel “The Soft Exile” was named as one of the “Books We Loved in 2012” by the East Bay Express, and his journalism has won commendations that include half a dozen New Jersey Press Association awards and a New Jersey Society of Professional Journalists award.
He has written for the North Jersey Media Group, Patch.com, The London Sunday Times, Listverse.com and Fiction Vortex, as well as on many bathroom walls across America.
Kiefer is also a unique and entertaining musician who specializes in a one-man-band, singer-songwriter style of performance. He’s appeared at various events, bars and venues such as the Purple Moon Pub in Vermont, the Red Light Café in Atlanta and the 1st Rutherford Anti-War Rally.
Kiefer’s discography includes his funk-folk tinged debut album, “The Spectre and the Dozer,” as well as the full-length zombie concept album, “The New Zeitgeist: Songs From The Zombie Apocalypse” and its accompanying e-book, “The New Zeitgeist: A Tale From The Zombie Apocalypse.”
Kiefer’s additional projects include his poetry/music mashup, “Spoken Word For The Doomed.”
The wordsmith and troubadour is equally as proud of more than a decade of blue-collar work experience, which includes jobs at almost a dozen local gas stations, fast food joints and supermarkets, as well as gigs as a mall Christmas elf, a highway road flagger, a kennel attendant and a pancake-house waiter.
