My Brother Erik – Master Musician

Someone asked me about my siblings, and I thought I would share a video of one of them.  My younger brother Erik is a composer and performer in Austin, Texas.  He’s performed on dozens of albums, produced about fifteen of his own, and was admitted to the Western Swing Hall of Fame.  Here’s a video of his group at Flipnotics, a small cafe on Bee Caves Road on the west side of Austin.

He composes gypsy, western, swing, folk, and surf guitar!  Here’s another example of him playing one of his surf guitar compositions (“Flash Flood”).  It makes me so proud to see him play as he is so gifted.

I am tone deaf; he has perfect pitch.  But he says, “Gee, John, you know how to do all that computer stuff.”
