After another amazing tour of Australia I am back in the homeland. I have lots of exciting things afoot (including Many many new songs, new shows, and another album all on the way) so keep checking this site for up to date info.
2014 has been exciting for me thus far and it looks like it is only the beginning.
Eric is currently in Australia again!Even though his luggage was lost and he is currently wearing thrift store clothing in hopes luggage arrival is soon, he tells me he is happy, loving the Hussy Hicks and 2 additional wonderful musicians that are traveling and performing with them. This time he will play the Gold Coast (Sydney, Brisbane, Queensland, Victoria,etc then off to the West Coast to play in Perth, Pinjarra, Nannup, Donagra, etc. New adventure and new excitement to see more of Australia and its wonderful people! Wish I was there, but I fear the long flights.

Eric leaves Sunday January 26, 2014 to tour Australia. He will play Queensland, Brisbane, Sydney…on the Gold Coast, he will also fly to the West Coast to play festivals and venues in and around Perth, Australia. He will play and visit in Australia until March 11–check his scheduled shows. On his return home he will stop in Los Angeles until March 18 and work on some music at Bear Jam Studios with Frank Perricone and others.
Eric stays busy, he just returned on Oct 24, 2013 from Europe. Loved Germany, Italy, Belgium and the other four countries he visited as well. The shows were great and he can’t wait to return. He is now on the Rombello Music Cruise to the Bahamas that left the shores of Miami, FL today. Then, day after his return he will head up the Port City Rising II at the Saenger Theatre! Two weeks later it is off to Los Angeles, California. A brief update from….
While touring Australia (Dec 2012-Feb2013) in support of my album, “My Brother’s Keepers”, I found myself surrounded by amazing musicians. Once I realized that I had way more than enough songs for another album, I put the 2 together. I asked my Australian friends to help me make a new album and they obliged. The result is “Color the Silence”. This album is one I am very proud of. Available at all my shows and at all online retail outlets. Check it out. Much Love, Eric Erdman
Note from Mom: Today Oct 9, Eric left for a tour in Germany and maybe a show in Belgium. He will return home with lots of stories and probably post them on Facebook, Twitter. He returns on Octomber 24th. (Eric’s Mom…Juanita)

I just want to say thank you to all of you for coming out to the Blue Gill for my CD release show with the Hussy Hicks. It was an incredible evening and of course it was great to see all of you. It was very fun to get to play all the songs with the Australian girls who helped record them in the first place. Big thanks also to Brandon Whigham, Greg DeLuca and Ross Newell (of the Mulligan Brothers) and the amazing Kristy Lee for sharing theirs talents as well. It made the night a special one for sure.

Eric has been touring and gigging non-stop since early December 2012 in Australia. He is now lined up and ready to quickly record 11 or 12 of his brand new songs for his Australian CD. I am so excited about it. He allowed me to help weed out and pick the ones for this album…not sure if he took my advice but he offered me an opportunity for some input anyway. His remarkable journey in Australia has been life changing and I am so happy he was able to experience that. 22 days from now he will land in Pensacola,FL (Feb 25th)…and his momma will be there waiting!
Love, Eric’s mom
