Saturday night i saw Eric Kallio playing at an irish pub in Portland. After listening to Eric's first album (Glass Wood & Steel) for the past nine months i knew he would be good, but my expectations were exceeded! Eric Kallio is a master of the Acoustic, Steel and Slide Guitars (probably all guitars), playing solo and using a loop Eric picked out some of the best tunage i have heard in years. In addition to the awesome performance his songwriting is nothing short of sublime, giving us sounds laced with "Cascadian Pride" and a true connection to the universe. Along with tunes on his first album and some great covers, Eric played songs from his upcoming album "Life Force" to be released in September (http://www.erickallio.com/music)....a must have for any true music fan.
Thanks for the beautiful Vibe!!!
