His skill allows him to make the guitar scream and rip and yet play tenderly and gently as well...one of the most gifted rock-blues guitarists of all time"   Steven Rosen(music author/journalist)

"Craig Erickson is a singular talent...the strength of his writing, playing and sheer power of delivery combine to create a very special listening experience.. at the root of his playing is great melody, phrasing, and soul".." Tony, at "The Dedicated Rocker Society"

Linn County Blues Society.  July 2013

The son of two local schoolteachers/musicians, Craig was exposed to classical, jazz, blues, etc. growing up while listening to his father Arnie teach a large number of guitar students, including Peter Harris (guitarist for Bruce Hornsby, Chuck Mangione, etc.) After hearing Jimi Hendrix, Craig’s lifelong ambition and love of music was firmly set. Playing in a variety of local bands and writing hundreds of songs through school and his 20s prepared him for the next phase. He was signed to a 4-album deal with major guitar label Shrapnel Records at 33.

That led to various projects such as a CD with rock legend Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, etc.) in LA. He has played with and appeared on CDs with Rick Derringer, Pat Travers, Rob Wasserman, Chris Duarte, Leslie West. After last year’s 13th solo release ”Galactic Roadhouse” on Shrapnel, he has 3 CDs he has been involved with set for release this year on several labels, and a 4th in the works. Endorsed by various music equipment companies and written up in magazines such as Guitar World, Classic Rock, Blues Review, Relix, etc. with worldwide radio airplay and heavy rotation on XM Satellite, Sirius, FM, Rapsody, etc. He teaches guitar, bass, vocals, and songwriting at the Music Loft produces various artists and plays locally with The Funk Daddies, Planet Pluto, Skeeter Louis, and The Craig Erickson Expedition.
