Eric Johnson [website | Amazon.com] is touring in celebration of his 1990 release Ah Via Musicom, which was certified platinum plus and launched Eric's signature hit "Cliffs Of Dover," which won the Grammy for Best Rock Instrumental Performance. Eric will be performing with an electric band on this tour, featuring Original Band Members Tommy Taylor & Kyle Brock.
Johnson leapt to the forefront of contemporary music some 20 years ago as "an extraordinary guitar player accessible to ordinary music fans," as the Memphis Commercial Appeal hails him, with his landmark album Ah Via Musicom. Lauded as a "recording [that] has reached near-classic proportions within the guitar community" by All Music Guide, it was preceded by dedicated groundwork as a live performer that marked him as a talent bound for great things. And it's been followed by a diverse and fascinating musical journey that inspired The New Age Music Guide to rave that "Eric Johnson plays guitar the way Michelangelo painted ceilings: with a colorful vibrancy that's more real than life."
Fender Guitars will also be launching its Eric Johnson Signature "Thinline" Stratocaster to coincide with this tour.
Arielle is considered a music industry triple threat because she could enjoy an impressive career solely as a singer, songwriter or guitar player, but she has combined all three of those gifts to create a unique artistry that defies genres and borders. A New Jersey native who was raised in California, she has already made the cover of Guitar Player magazine and released the single "California," which reached No. 3 on CMT Pure. She was also cast as a guitar player in the TV show "Nashville." She is gaining comparisons to Karen Carpenter and Eva Cassidy for her pure voice with a four-octave range.
