Episode 4: Maserati-E

Dec 2, 2019

In 2012, Eric "Maserati-E" Abercrombie picked up the guitar and has been performing ever since. Today, the producers talk about the music that helped them through some of the most difficult moments of their life, and what tools they use to channel and understand their own pain.

This past August, he was released, at age 25. Now, he’s performing regularly. 

"I don't have to necessarily have to say a word, but once I play the guitar, play the piano, anything like that, it's like I'm letting it all out."
Eric "Maserati E" Abercrombie plays at an open mic at San Quentin Prison.

The interview with Maserati-E was first aired on June 24, 2019 with the headline “Maserati E plays music to cope with his brother’s death.”
