Eric Henry Andersen
Eric Henry Andersen is a singer-songwriter, producer, podcaster, and independent consultant from Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. He moved to Reno in 2008 to attend the University of Nevada where he studied music and political science and competed as a member of the NCAA D1 alpine ski team. His music career—both as a solo artist and co-lead singer/songwriter of pop/rock group, The Novelists, has taken him all over the nation, sharing festival bills with and opening for artists such as Train, Five for Fighting, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Allen Stone, Glenn Philips (Toad the Wet Sprocket) and Daryl Stuermer (Genesis/Phil Collins Band).
In addition to his work in the music industry, Andersen serves on the Reno Arts and Culture Commission and the Nevada Ski Team Booster’s board, hosts the podcast “Conversations for Convergence,” and coaches alpine skiing part-time. He is a member of the Sierra Psychedelic Society and credits psychedelic medicines for playing an integral role in his personal and professional development. Andersen is deeply committed to the betterment of society through empowering people and communities and is excited to further that work via the Nevada Coalition for Psychedelic Medicines.
