BURN IT DOWN review in Feb 2018 Offbeat Magazine

Cover 0218 offbeat lores 300x384

"Not only does Johanson have exceptional talent and skill, but his tone is really developed beyond his years. [...] Johanson has a solid grasp of songwriting as evidenced by the 10 out of 11 songs on Burn It Down that he wrote. However, in the end it’s Johanson’s guitar playing that will bring him the attention that he clearly deserves." - Offbeat Magazine.

Burn It Down to be released Friday 10/13/2017

Pre-order available now from iTunes and Amazon.

Eric Johanson's debut record Burn It Down is released 10/13/2017 on Tab Benoit's Whiskey Bayou Records.  Eric started out as a teen touring the southeast as a young-gun blues guitar player, and has since toured the world as guitarist for Grammy winning artists like Cyril Neville and Terrance Simien.   Renowned blues artist Tab Benoit signed Eric to his new Whiskey Bayou label, produced and mixed the album as well as performing all the drums. Burn It Down was recorded live over a week at Tab's own studio, and showcases a bluesy rock style thick with swampy grooves, searing guitars, and soulful vocals.
