The Eric Lindberg Trio
CURRENTLY BOOKING SUMMER/FALL 2019 - 2020
Eric Lindberg is a believer in the philosophies of martial arts. Eric strives to make music in a similar manner to how he lives his life, with graciousness, hard work, and empathy. This philosophy has pushed Eric to constantly improve his craft, to only release music he feels passionate about, and to surround himself with people who share the same core values. At times this discriminating approach has made the process more difficult but much like the masters Eric admires, he believes that little good will come from chasing a goal that is not his own.
A New England Native Returns Home
Eric Johnson, an idol of Lindberg's made him consider and ultimately choose Austin Texas as a place to expand his musical endeavors. Eric lived there for over a decade. In many ways Ausin was an eye- opening
experience fraught with successes, failures and adventures too numerous to account.
Eric has continued to passionately chase his love for music. Working with excellent blues and jazz musicians from across the country, Eric has recorded a variety of blues, jazz, pop, swing and hybrid music. Mike KIndred, blues piano virtuoso and composer of multi-platinu SRV hit "Cold Shot," has called Eric Lindberg "a sure and original blues voice." and "prodigiously talented."
"nothing could have prepared him for the unusual and frequently surreal experience"
While sitting in with American soul and blues singer Malford Milligan, Eric was asked to stay in Austin to record his third album, Eric and the Wreckage. This process was interrupted when Buddy Miles appeared looking for a backline band. At this point, Eric had already been playing live music for fifteen years, but nothing could prepare him for the unusual and frequently surreal experience of spending time on the road with an established act like Buddy Miles. In 2007, Eric toured with the legendary musician, traveling across America's west coast and showcasing his own incredible guitar and vocal skills to enthusiastic audiences nearly every night. When he finished his time on the tour, Eric knew he needed to continue playing live music. He just wanted to do so closer to the land of his birth. He returned to New England from Austin and threw himself into it's scene.
As time consuming and sometimes illusive as the artist's life is, Eris wouldn't trade it for anything. He likes to say that he's attempted to break up with music twice, but as the great Al Pacino sais, "Just when I thought I was out... they pull me back in!" It's real love.
A lifelong musician, Gabe Jarrett began playing music at age 5 and was performing by the age of 12 years old.
A New Jersey /New York native, Gabe studied drum-set/ composition at the New School of Jazz program in NYC before relocating to New England.
As studies with Charlie Persip and Bob Gullotti honed his technique, demand for Gabe Jarrett as a musical and creative sideman grew.
Gabe has joined artists such as Peter Apfelbaum, Joe Lovano, Greg Tardy, Nina Nastasia, Thomas Chapin, Mike Gordon, Page McConnell, Will Bernard, Marco Benevento, Karl Berger and many others for musical performances large and small.
Gabe Jarrett has performed internationally at venues including the North Sea Jass Festival in Rotterdam, Holland; The Fillmore in San Francisco, CA; High Sierra Music Festival in Quincy, CA; Bonnaroo in Manchester, TN; the Gramercy Theater in NYC; and the Willisau Jazz Festival in Willisau, Austria.
When at home in VT, Gabe teaches music/percussion at SUNY Plattsburgh, Johnson State, and Saint Michael's College.
Guitarist Brad Myrick, known locally as a hometown guru, is also an international authority of the axe, continuing the tradition of Al Di Meola, Eric Johnson, Kurt Rosenwinkel, and many others spanning the genres.
The NH guitarist’s career history reads like the script of an independent film, which is to say, like a young man’s artistic journey. Myrick’s story features an amalgam of diverse scenes, ranging from chart-topping studio work, to high-end Italian jazz clubs, to super-sized stadium shows as a touring sideman.
Raised in Hopkinton, New Hampshire, Myrick’s first adventure came with a move to Boston, where he began studies in international business and finance. In no time at all, and perhaps responding to deafening protest from
from his musical muse, Brad moved back to NH, and set his sights west. Myrick loaded up his car and began the journey to Los Angeles. Myrick quickly began performing around southern California in various projects. He played to hundreds of people a night at the Whiskey A Go-Go, Key Club and many other classic venues on the sunset strip. All the while he continued his own musical education at Los Angeles Music Academy and USC, furthering his exploration in rock, jazz, pop, funk, R&B and folk music.
Six years and countless gigs later Myrick’s muse brought him to Italy where he began work in studio production. There his arranging know-how, compositional input, and vocal talent flourished as he became a producer and first-call arranger. During this time Brad also became known as a sought-after teacher in the Italian community. Two and a half years later, he made the move back to NH where he has resided since 2011.
Mr. Myrick’s projects are wide-ranging and his fans are equally likely to enjoy him on stage at a jazz concert, fronting a rock band, leading an open mic, or playing a solo show. In keeping with his adventurous lifestyle (which brings him back to Cali and Italy frequently), any single Brad Myrick performance traverses multiple styles, as he stretches and cross-pollinates genres deftly, and often on a whim.
