Erick was born in Houston Texas. His music melds subtle elements of RB Neo-Soul Jazz Electronic and Popular influences into a brew he's coined as Rhythm Chill.
Music is not life but some call it the soundtrack to life. I began making my own soundtrack as soon as I had my first keyboard around the age of 7. I began producing my own music in middle school with a keyboard and a double deck tape recorder. Progressively I endeavored to improve all elements of my creative process.
Erick believes music creators have a responsibility and hopes this is apparent in the music you hear from him. Respect love kindness truth joy faithfulness these are qualities he says he pursues. He remarks I strive to make my music a reflection of that.
Currently Erick has completed an EP entitled CoolFront as well as three new singles ?Ice Cold? Now If You Think and Where Two Begin all of which can be found on his forthcoming LP. Ice Cold will be available for purchase on digital retail outlets November 2 2018. His EP and other two singles are now available for purchase through most of the major digital retailers. Such as iTunes Amazon Google Play Spotify Last FM Rdio CD Baby. He works creatively under his label imprint The Raw Flames Records TM. All of the songs were written performed produced and mixed by him. The Extended Play was mastered by Grammy winning engineer Ernie Wells at 8th Note Productions. Who admits It has a really cool sound...real laid back Ernie continues hence the rhythm and chill.
Erick says he's most comfortable on the keyboard. Although he unassumingly admits that he's getting acquainted with the bass and lead guitars the trumpet as well as the drums. His production style marries analog and digital sounds to produce something altogether refreshing yet familiar.
The six-foot-plus crooner held an intimate private album release party in May of 2014. According to him It was a huge success! Thanks to all of my family and friends. I can't thank them enough for all of their love and support. It's what keeps me going. Erick has performed locally in the Greater Houston area at private events as well as local restaurants along side a promising young band Epic Melody and Session One. As well as good friend and vocalist Bennie Ruffin of the famous Ruffin Famiy.
I'm really excited about my next projects. I think it shows the growth I've made as a creative. I hope and believe people are going to love it! It's release is to be announced at a future date.
