CRAIG ERICKSON • Modern Blues

This is my 16th commercially released solo album and one of the most involved music projects I have recorded. I started writing songs for a new album, in my Midwest studio, just as the worldwide pandemic began in 2020.


I sent a couple of songs to legendary producer Mike Varney. He heard the potential and began
offering some advice and inspiration for the project. I previously recorded several records for Mike’s Shrapnel Records label. He had hooked me up with some of the best musicians in the world beginning in the 90s including the likes of Glenn Hughes and the "Badlands" rhythm section. We initially discussed traveling to a studio near him and working with some musicians to record the album. Those plans changed as the ongoing COVID situation continued to spread rapidly. So I decided to play all the instruments just as I have on several previous records. I continued to write a lot of songs that reflected what was going on in the world, as well as my personal life. It became almost a concept album type of theme of how weird the world was becoming… "Modern Blues" but with love and hope shining behind the clouds and through the tunnel.

Fortunately, I had the downtime to listen to the music that originally inspired me. I dug deep into my melting pot of influences including Hendrix, Robin Trower, Allman Bros., Frank Marino, ZZ Top, and unexpected flavors like The Who, The Stones, Bowie, Prince, and The Beatles. I even veered into fusion moments with some intense guitar soloing. It was starting to come together but I still needed a great drummer to take it up a notch and tie it all together. I called Jeff Sipe (Jimmy Herring, Susan Tedeschi, Shawn Lane) to add his funky creative groove power to the mix. He had played on my instrumental record "Cosmic Farm" on Shrapnel Records. His contribution improved this project by miles.
Be ready to dance, or just nod your head to the beat while cranking the tunes and cruising down the road! I hope the twelve tracks on "Modern Blues" will take you on a funky, rockin’ journey with interesting stories and exciting musical adventures and move way past heartbreak and into the land of harmony, peace, and love.
