Eric Krasno and Band with Host Darren DeVivo at WFUV

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.
