How did you come up with your performance name, EP Onenonly?

Well, EP is my initials and initially that was going to be my name but when I was starting to release music it didn’t seem unique for searches. So I added Onenonly. I choose that because I know I am one of a kind but I also feel we all are unique and we should all own that.

Your music is described as an interpretation of real-life experiences. Can you share a specific moment or event that inspired one of your tracks, and how did you translate that into your music?

The track I have “Vinchenzo” is my late good friend “big brother” Vince. We have seen a lot together and he has seen a lot that I have been through grinding and hustle and making something out of nothing and he was the one who really and honestly believed in my music. He was one of the only ones that booked my first big show on Spring break and I opened for Lil Flip. The song speaks on the grind we both experienced in the past and really that I am never going to stop this and I won’t because I know he is looking down jamming to my music and wants me to succeed. He knows how much this means to me and us. I also wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for him but that’s another interview. Definitely will touch on that in “The Eric Peterson Story”.

In your journey of writing, producing, and engineering your music, what has been the most challenging aspect, and how did you overcome it? 

The most challenging aspect was the fact that I’ve been raising my son by myself and it was hard when he was younger so I would just write and record also that’s why I started to focus more on my craft and working with other producers. Once he started getting a little older I could get out and start performing and getting out more to spread the music.

Who would you consider the most inspirational person in the music industry?

Two answers: Technically I would say the big label owners because they can pick someone and make them a star. I also can’t just say one person because it depends on where they are at and what is popular. If you make the right moves while a person is hot and popular they could promote dookie earrings and they would sell out.

What does success look like to you?

Success is what you make it. To me make great music that touches people’s hearts and helps them through tough times, inspires them, or just gives them a break from the hamster wheel. I also see success as being able to be financially free through doing something I love and was born to do.
