Williams Route 66 Marathon Featured Artist: Eric Himan

By Dante Schmitz

For the past two years singer/songwriter Eric Himan has been featured as a headlining artist at the Williams Route 66 Marathon and this November he will once again take the stage to inspire runners with his compelling live performance.

Himan has been writing, recording and performing music for almost 10 years and recently released his seventh studio album, “SUPPOSED UNKNOWN.” Not one to walk alone, he recruited award-winning singer/songwriter, Namoli Brennet, to help produce this standout project and also enlisted the mastering talents of Chris Bellman (Ani DiFranco, Alanis Morissette, Elton John) to bring the story to life.

“Though the rest is still ‘UNKNOWN,’” said Himan, “I intend for ‘SUPPOSED’ to take me to great places I haven’t been before.”

“SAVE THE AFTERNOON,” his single off the album, was also recently featured on Sirius XM Radio’s Coffee House program. It garnered such a positive response that he has been invited to New York to perform at a live taped session later this summer.

After finishing a short tour on the East coast, Himan will eventually make his way back to Tulsa for his much anticipated CD release party at the Tree House (1738 S. Boston Ave) on August 5. He will be accompanied by a full rock band and will also be showing his new music video for the second featured song from the record, “DUST.”

Music videos and satellite radio appearances aside, Himan always finds time to support his community and the local music scene. He has performed for many charity events around town and has also been featured on several local radio and TV programs. As a sign of his strong support for the marathon and the good work it does, he is offering a free download of his song, “TULSA,” by following this link.
