About

Daniel Eriksen

"Fucking Amazing!" - Steven Van Zandt

"He's got his own style! If he's copying anyone, I haven't heard them" - Eden Brent

"He shouts, stomps and screams his way through this set of  Delta blues and dark gospel with plenty of feeling. So much, in fact, that you sometimes forget this is a new record from a modern day, Scandinavian blues man" - Blues Matters (UK)   

 Through dedication, and 20 years of relentless touring all over the world, Daniel Eriksen has built a reputation as a great slide guitarist. His style of dirty Mississippi delta blues, infused with New Orleans rhythms, gospel and boogie, has brought him many fans around the world.

In addition to having studied the old masters of slide, like Blind Willie Johnson and Mississippi Fred McDowell, Eriksen has learned firsthand from modern masters such as Roy Rogers, Bob Brozman and John Mooney. 

Eriksen has shared the stage with fine blues artists such as Lazy Lester, John Mooney, James Harman, Rick Danko, Eden Brent, Grayson Capps, Lightnin' Malcolm, Fiona Boyes, Bill Abel, Jimmy "Duck" Holmes, and opened shows for B.B. King, John Mayall, The Yardbirds and his "mentor" Roy Rogers.
