Eric DiVito

Eric DiVito is one of NYC’s talented and busy guitarists. Originally from Long Island, NY, Eric began playing guitar at the age of 11 and was gigging professionally by the time he was in high school. In 2004, after graduating from the Crane School of Music, Eric moved to Queens, NY to attend The Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College and to be closer to New York City's jazz scene. There, he began doing more gigs and collaborating with some of New York's finest musicians.

Eric performs as a soloist as well as in duos, trios, quartets, and big bands at various clubs, festivals, and other venues throughout NY. He often performs as both a sideman and a leader and is an active composer, frequently performing and recording his original music. He has also had several compositions and arrangements commissioned for various ensembles and events and has had his music featured in independent films.
