Blues/funk guitarist Craig Erickson learned to try out while employed in his father’s record shop in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. He shaped his first music group at 13, and started playing around the region. Erickson agreed upon a agreement with Blues Bureau Intl. in the first ’90s, launching Roadhouse Stomp! in 1992 and Vintage Blues Express the next year. Although albums highlighted John Onder on bass and Atma Anur on drums, Erickson’s regular music group — with which he provides backed blues legends such as for example Koko Taylor, Small Ed & the Blues Imperials, Elvin Bishop and Lonnie Brooks — contains bassist Al Robinson and drummer Kerri Collings. Erickson documented Two Sides from the Blues to get a 1995 discharge, and implemented up with Power Majeure twelve months later. He made an appearance on tribute albums to Stevie Ray Vaughan and Albert Ruler (Hats Off to Stevie Ray, Suit for a Ruler), and in addition co-wrote and performed on Blues, the single record by Glenn Hughes (Deep Crimson, Trapeze).
