Eric went to the  Ashley School in New Bedford, Massachusets, the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, and Harvard. Eric has run with the bulls in Pamplona and worked in the New Bedford Public School system and he’s not sure which is more dangerous. He has released four books: the memoir HEROIN’S RAINBOW, the poetry/lyrics collection TALKING LIKE A MAN WITH A PAPER ASSHOLE and two psychedelic surrealist novels DEATH TAKES AN ACID TRIP and COLD AS A WITCH’S CUNT. He has written for the Boston Hassle, Boston Noise, Motif, New Bedford Guide, and Fairhaven Navigator.

The Artists Index Indie Podcast Host, Scott Bishop, talks to Eric Baylies about his background, passions, and career. The Artists Index continues using Zoom to accommodate our guests’ schedules and to allow them to remain in the comfort of their homes, especially for those who no longer live in the South Coast of Massachusetts. Our home base and studio are at Spectrum Marketing Group in Howland Place in New Bedford.

The whole concept of The Artists Index and our journey is still in the making and very organic. If you would like to be a guest or, have a suggestion, please let us know!
