Erick Hovey: Down on The Farm with
Blues, Americana, Jazz, and Roots Rock
By day, he drives a
tractor, working his tranquil farm, by night he picks an electric
guitar. Aside from being a farmer, American Midwesterner Erick
Hovey is a complete and exciting musician with a rootsy,
modern blues sound. With his four releases and live performances, Erick
has firmly entrenched himself as an outstanding guitarist, a poetic
sensible composer, and a superb lyricist with a clever sense of life
reality. Erick Hovey is undoubtedly one of a kind, a player who
celebrates the virtues of space, time and presence. He is comfortable
on all grounds of roots traditional music like blues, swing, country,
pop, and Americana. There's a signature sound at play here, a
discernable voice of rich tones and texures, sweet melodies, expressive
phrasing, real feel, and always the blues. Fans have no trouble
instantly connecting with Erick’s unique, free laidback style.

Blues guitarist, very personal, who mixes
rock and roots, with strong influences by JJ Cale, Eric Clapton and
Larry Carlton: that is soul, style and technique. Erick Hovey’sNon è al primo disco, ne ha già
alcuni alle spalle, ma la sua musica è, a suo modo, orginale,
