It's About Time

Steve Erickson

This debut album offers an eclectic mix of acoustic-based music. The album features singer/songwriter storytelling with a pop sensibility that isn't easily pegged to a particular genre. Blues, traditional and country influences round out the sound.

Steve Erickson is a gifted singer and songwriter whose first album, It's About Time, has just been released. It's About Time offers an eclectic mix of singer/songwriter storytelling with a pop sensibility that isn't easily pegged to a particular genre. Clear vocals and tight harmonies are featured throughout the album. Erickson has a broad base of musical influences that had been percolating for years before he took the songwriting plunge. " I was thinking about writing songs long before I actually wrote them down, probably because I didn't know if they would be good enough. Well I got over that and the songs just started to flow." he says. Erickson's songs have been described as " well crafted" and his live performances have been described as "high energy" and "connecting directly with the audience." Erickson performs in the Washington DC area both as a solo act and as part of the duo, Medium Gauge with fellow singer/songwriter Nick Peters.
