Price: $36 - $46
Presented by SBL Entertainments - Friends of the Bing - KPND Radio
Thirty years after his breakthrough solo release “Tones” brought him national recognition, Texas guitar legend Eric Johnson is releasing his first all-acoustic album. Showcasing nine original compositions and four covers, “EJ” is easily Johnson's most intimate album to date, and he brings these songs and more to The Bing February 1, 2017.
“Very few musical artists achieve a true signature style—one that makes comparisons to other musicians impossible. But Texas guitarist Eric Johnson arguably comes as close to this echelon as any musician from the past quarter-century. Like fellow Lone Star State guitarists Johnny Winter, Billy Gibbons, and Stevie Ray Vaughn, Johnson blends the rock style of Jimi Hendrix and the blues power of Albert King.” – Bill Meredith, All Music
“EJ” brings listeners as close as possible to hearing Johnson in his own living room, performing songs on piano, steel-string, and nylon string acoustic guitar, offering guitar enthusiasts and all music-lovers an intimate, up-close experience with one of acoustic guitar’s all-time heroes.
