We love Eric Johnson!
From the opening notes of Cliffs of Dover, we were hooked and he’s got the tone for days. Many players attempt to cop his licks and his tone, however, it always comes back to Eric as an original. Ah Via Musicom has some of his greatest work – East Wes, Righteous, Desert Rose (love that chorus), Steve’s Boogie and of course the aforementioned Cliffs of Dover (here with the Ah Via Musicom intro).
One of our favorite albums is his disc Live From Austin which is amazing. Give it a listen to hear how his live play is even better than his studio work. He’ll be playing BB Kings in NYC in March 2018 – see you there!
Eric Johnson has announced that he will perform his 1990 album, Ah Via Musicom , in its entirety during his extensive American tour next year. “I listen to the fan feedback and comments as I plan my projects and tours. That’s how I got into the recording and subsequent tour with Mike Stern.
