Shine, is the fifth solo album from blues/rock “axeslinger supreme” CRAIG ERICKSON and finds the guitarist taking his guitar to new limits and exploring his musical roots even deeper than his previous efforts. Shine is the first release for Craig on GROOVEYARD RECORDS, a new label dedicated to “pure heavy guitar beauty for the new millennium” and is a departure from his four previous solo discs on the BBI / SHRAPNEL label. The CRAIG ERICKSON PROJECT features two amazing special guest vocalists in the form of the “legendary” GLENN HUGHES (who shows up on a killer version of "Wild Dogs" for Brother Tommy Bolin) and ROB LAMOTHE (ex-RIVERDOGS), who lends his awesome soulful vocal power on six trax, including a beautiful, stripped-down version of "Angel", dedicated to Jimi Hendrix. On Shine, brother Craig pays homage to all of our favorite guitar heroes and the disc is definitely highly recommended for fans of vintage ROBIN TROWER, FRANK MARINO, ERIC JOHNSON, TOMMY BOLIN and the “one and only” JIMI HENDRIX ...(just to name a few). The disc runs 68 minutes and features 13 tracks of top- shelf soulful bluesy hard rock/heavy guitar with style and class, complete with songs and vocals to match. Shine is a dazzling, blues-based, heavy guitar roller coaster ride and a diverse collection of serious heavy guitar moves from this outstanding, gifted guitarist that “outshines” the norm.
Craig Erickson makes his mark on Shine and deserves international exposure on every level. ...It’s time to let the CRAIG ERICKSON PROJECT “ROCK YOUR BLUES” away!!!
