Influenced by composers from Bach and Beethoven to Sting and John Williams, Erik’s exceptional, original music truly comes to life in Touch Your Heart, stirring your emotions and allowing you to escape inside the enchanting melodies and dynamic rhythms.
A Brief History:
Touch Your Heart is just the latest addition to Erik’s musical career. Having performed a solo piano recital at age of eight, Erik continued on to become a decorated, award-winning musician throughout his grade school and high school years. He went on to study piano performance and music composition at Northwestern College. His senior recital from college featured exclusively his own compositions performed by himself, his professors and fellow students. He graduated in December 2002 with a Bachelor of Music in Composition.
Touch Your Heart is the realization of a dream that began in October of 2004 when Erik and his wife Michelle launched their own company that they named Touch Your Heart Productions LLC. Their mission is to “raise the quality of entertainment by putting forth a standard of excellence that has never been reached in this industry.” Touch Your Heart Productions LLC began by performing at local community events, coffee houses, churches and schools. In January 2006, with much anticipation from fans, they launched this first CD.
Touch Your Heart, the CD, was written with the intention to reach beyond the live performances and to give audience members something to take with them. The result is the CD that you see here.
