Eric Leeds

Grammy Award-Winning saxophonist & flutist Eric Leeds first started working with Prince in the mid 80’s when he was offered a spot in the band The Family. Their debut was released in 1985 on Paisley Park records. Leeds continued to work in the studio and onstage with Prince, including a plethora of tours and performances on Prince and Prince-related albums, including but not limited to Parade, Sign O’ The Times, Lovesexy, and Batman.

In 1986 Prince created the group Madhouse to feature Eric’s saxophone and flute musicianship. Two albums were released for that project, 8 and 16, both released in 1987.

Eric subsequently released two albums of his own on Paisley Park/Warner Bros., Times Squared and Things Left Unsaid. He released a 3rd solo record in 2000, Now & Again.

With fDeluxe (formerly The Family), Eric recorded Gaslight (2011), AM Static (2014), and Live & Tight As a Funk Fiends’ Fix (2014).

As LP music alongside St. Paul Peterson, he released No Words in 2017.

Today, Eric continues to play with fDeluxe and with Paul Peterson in the group LP Music.
