In 2017 Eric Krasno will return with new albums from Soulive and the Eric Krasno Band. He will also tour with both groups.
What will you remember most about 2016?
Unfortunately, 2016 will be remembered as the year we lost many great musicians & entertainers. From David Bowie, Leon Russell and George Martin to Muhammed Ali…we lost a lot of greats.
Which album or albums have you listened to most this past year?
I listened to Andy Shauf’s new album The Party a ton this year. I loved the production and feeling of this record. It’s a concept album that tells the story of a night at a party through eyes of a group of people. It made me listen all the way through every time. I love albums like that.
What emerging artists should we watch out for in 2017?
Marcus King is absolutely killing it right now. An amazing singer and ripping guitar player…his band is on fire too.
Any big plans in the works for 2017?
In 2017 I will finish my new solo album (the follow-up to Blood from a Stone ) and continue to tour with Eric Krasno Band. We also have a new Soulive album in the works (produced by Pretty Lights) and will do our Bowlive run again in June. I will also be doing some production and writing work with a few other artists in the studio. Looking forward to year full of new music.
