About

Daniel Eriksen

"Fucking Amazing!" - Steven Van Zandt (guitarist, actor, producer)

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

"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 Blues Magazine)

"Daniel Eriksen is the real damn deal!!!" - Jimmy Carpenter (artist and promoter)

 

Blues recording artist and songwriter DANIEL ERIKSEN is best known for his breathtaking skill on the slide guitar. Eriksen has been the recipent of numerous awards such as Blues Album Of The Year (The SPELLEMANN Award 2014), Blues Artist of The Year (The NBF Blues Award 2015), and just recently took 2nd Place at The INTERNATIONAL BLUES CHALLENGE in Memphis, Tennessee January 2018, in competition with almost 100 great acts from all over the world.

All of Eriksen's albums have received top notch reviews, from his first New Orleans inspired YA YA and MUDDY DAYS, to the dark award winning gospel blues album MOONSHINE HYMNS and his recent rollicking NARRATIVE BOOGIE.

A new album is in the making with recordings from the famous SUN STUDIO and THE ORPHEUM THEATRE in Memphis, Tennessee and CLARKSDALE SOUNDSTAGE and JUKE JOINT CHAPEL in Clarksdale, Mississippi.

 

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

As a touring musician for over 20 years, Eriksen has performed with fine artists such as LAZY LESTER, RICK DANKO, FIONA BOYES, JOHN MOONEY, LIGHTNIN' MALCOLM, EDEN BRENT, BILL ABEL, GRAYSON CAPPS and served as opening act for B.B. KING, THE YARDBIRDS and JOHN MAYALL among others.
