Tim Erickson


Band to Join, Vocalist.


Looking for a singer for a really cool band I am currently putting together, with a very talented drummer & bass player.

I've been playing music since I was a kid, and I had the good fortune to learn from some very talented and knowledgeable pros in Southern California as a teenager, and have a lot of experience in the studio as well as live. I have always been one of the hardest working musicians I knew, and I write a lot of music, with my emphasis being about playing creatively & for the song!

I have played a broad range of Rock, Hard Rock, Blues based Rock, and Classic Rock over the years. I place equal importance on playing with feel & attitude, making each note count, and breathing life into each part. I can approach a song from a variety of angles stylistically, and working creatively in the zone is something I have always excelled at. I have extensive experience in the studio as an engineer and producer as well, with layering guitar tracks, and vocal harmonies, as well as mixing down final mixes for mastering.

I grew up influenced on guitar by late 60's to mid 70's era guys like Joe Perry, Paul Kossoff, Jeff Beck, James Gang era Joe Walsh, 70's era Billy Gibbons, Jimmy Page, Hendrix, Neal Schon (70's era Journey with Gregg Rolie), to name just a few.

My former band "The Smokin Section" achieved some very cool things, but I am very excited for the new band, which has amazing potential, and creative possibilities!!
