While in Portland on EKB's tour with The Marcus King Band, Eric stopped by WCLZ to talk about the tour, collaborations between the two bands, and perform a few tracks unplugged in the studio.
Thanks to Bassman for having me on WEAA to talk the beginnings of Lettuce and Soulive and play some tracks from my new solo record/project.
Eric Krasno & his band recently stopped by to play a couple of songs and have a live in-studio chat with Rich Robinson of WBJB.

Guitar whiz Eric Krasno has made a name for himself not only through his time in the bands Soulive and Lettuce, but also from his work as a songwriter, session guitarist, and producer with many different artists. Now, he takes a little time out for himself. Krasno has just released his first solo album, Blood From A Stone. He's also just produced Aaron Neville’s new album, Apache.
This first foray as a frontman sees Krasno singing for the first time, but it’s not the first time he has written songs for vocals. In fact, the origins of Blood From A Stone came from sessions in which he thought he was working on songs that others would sing. In time, it became obvious that these were songs that Krasno was meant to sing.
Dave Gutter from the band, Rustic Overtones, helped Krasno write most on the songs on Blood From A Stone, which also features a guest appearance from Derek Trucks.
When Krasno and his band visited FUV's Studio A, he discussed the sessions that led him to this brand new album.
Grammy-winning artist Eric Krasno has spent 20 years in the music industry. He's the guitar player for Soulive, Lettuce, and has played with and written for The Rolling Stones, The Roots, Norah Jones, 50 Cent, Talib Kweli, and Aaron Neville, just to name a few.
Now, Krasno is out with a solo album, "Blood from a Stone," which was released earlier this month. He talks to us about his creative process and discovering his own voice.
