Bio
Cutting-edge Country Vocals and “No holds barred” performances Raised in south-central Utah Erik grew up loving the western life, and grew to love the songs that talked about his passions of being a cowboy. Erik started singing at an early age as he started off by entertaining family singing Willie Nelson's (on the road again) at the age of one. And was soon entertaining strangers and friends. That passion grew as he entered High School where he began to take part in the School Choir and gained quite a popular reputation performing in School and Church plays. Erik takes his early influences from Kenny Chesney and Garth Brooks , which becomes obvious watching Erik’s electric and antic filled performances. Gary Allen and Keith Whitley (for his writing style) are big favorites with him as well. He made his stage debut roughly six years ago and, in that short time, has shared the stage with such acts as; Restless Heart, Joe Nichols, Jake Owen, Singer/Songwriter Sarah Buxton, Grand Ole Opry hal of fame Hal Ketchum and Confederate Railroad just to name a few… DJ Brian Gary from K99 (KUAD-FM) took a special liking to Erik, so much so as to book him and his Band (the Country Contraband) for the Radio Stations Annual week long Concert series for the Greely Stampede in Greeley, Colorado. True to form, Erik’s performance exceeded expectations and once the word got out, the promoters enjoyed some of the best visitor numbers they’ve seen in years. But that’s not all… The Loveland Reporter Herald wrote a multi-page expose on Erik in their Northern Colorado GO! Magazine and the Johnstown Breeze equally followed suit. The buzz over Erik’s newly released album and addictively energetic live performances are, obviously, gaining national attention. Established Radio Stations like Planet Texas and RadioUnlimited, just to name a few, scrambled their respective press crews to be the first get an Interview with the up and coming star. Erik is currently working on his second album.
