Eric Gross is a Berklee College of Music graduate whose major was in Music Business. While at Berklee, he made it a point to expand his knowledge of his craft by studying numerous styles of drumming including Jazz, Latin and Afro-Cuban. He studied under the likes of Rod Morgenstein, Mike Mangini and Francisco Mela, to name a few. He graduated in 2009 and immediately interned at ASCAP Nashville and then Vic Firth Company.

In 2012 he joined the Boston based rock band Vanna and has since been touring nonstop domestically and throughout the world. After a successful run on the Vans Warped Tour, Eric and the rest of Vanna entered the studio to record their latest effort “The Few and the Far Between,” which was released in March of 2013. Instead of releasing music videos for singles on their current record, Vanna took a more creative approach and directed a movie for the entire album, which is currently a weekly feature on Absolute Punk. You can catch Vanna on tour this fall on the “Home is Where I Roam” headlining tour starting in October.
