Eric Johanson For The Culture from The Heart of NOLA Tuesday, Sept. 22 at 7pm Combining influences from an array of genres and his work as a touring guitarist for Grammy winning bands, New Orleans artist Eric Johanson creates blues-based alternative roots rock in his rising solo career. Following years spent on the road as a guitarist, having performed onstage with Cyril Neville, Anders Osborne, JJ Grey, Eric Lindell, and the Neville Brothers, Eric was discovered by Louisiana blues-rock icon Tab Benoit, signing Johanson to his Whiskey Bayou Record label in 2017. Eric’s debut solo album, Burn It Down, was produced by Benoit and released in October 2017. Sacramento News & Review described it as “an earnest blend of roots-Americana singing and brawny, backwoods guitar grooves.” Cincinnati City Beat noted, “Along with his solid playing and singing, Johanson’s willingness to write Blues music without adhering to the genre’s traditional structuring makes for a compelling listen, as does his deeper examination of the emotions that the Blues were built upon.” Following the release of Burn It Down, Eric spent the next two years on Benoit’s tour bus opening most of his shows, as well as performing festivals and doing short tours of his own. In January 2019 Eric released a duet record with his long lost (and re-united) first cousin Tiffany Pollack entitled Blues In My Blood, on Nola Blue Records. During the 2019 Jazz Fest, Johanson was invited to perform with Luther Dickinson at an all-star jam concert. The two hatched plans to make Eric’s next record at Dickinson’s Zebra Ranch Studios, with Luther producing and brother Cody Dickinson of North Mississippi Allstars on drums.
