Album Notes
Originally from Pennsylvania where he was first known for his energetic guest appearances with many of the area's finest performers, Eric's early musical influences inspired him to pick up his first Fender Stratocaster at the age of nine. There was no looking back.............

Eric's passion for the Blues enabled him to eventually share the stage with many nationally known artists including Bob Margolin, Debbie Davies, James Armstrong, Steve Guyger, Kenny Neal, Chris Beard, Tommy Castro, Joe Kubek, Solomon Burke, Ronnie Baker Brooks and Hubert Sumlin.

With a feeling and natural ability that just can't be explained for someone so young, Eric delivers a Freddie-BB-Albert King influenced performance with an intensity and skill that belies his youth. With a style at times reminiscent of the great ones, Eric combines a variety of influences while reminding everyone the real thing comes from the heart and soul.

The Eric Steckel Band's debut CD, "A Few Degrees Warmer", was recorded live in April 2002 when Eric was a mere 11 years old. "A Few Degrees" quickly became a CD Baby Top Blues Seller and the record continues to delight Blues Guitar fans across the globe.

In follow-up to “A Few Degrees”, the ESB released a studio record titled "High Action" in 2004 which is also available through CD Baby.

In addition to developing their own faithful following over the past five years through many regular club gigs and festival appearances, the ESB has enjoyed the opportunity to open for Marcia Ball, Tommy Castro, Shemekia Copeland, and B.B. King. The ESB also had the honor to open for Johnny Winter in Amsterdam as part of their second European Tour!

In the Summer of 2004, Eric appeared in Sweden, Norway and Denmark as a special guest with John Mayall and The Bluesbreakers during their Scandinavian Tour. Mayall was so impressed with Eric’s performance during the tour that he asked Eric to join the Bluesbreakers in the studio as a special guest guitarist on the “Road Dogs” record. Listen for Eric's lead guitar work on the track "Chaos in the Neighborhood".

Eric now resides in Jacksonville, Florida where was introduced to Duane Trucks who joined the band in late 2005 as their regular drummer. Music fans will immediately recognize Duane as the brother of Derek Trucks and the nephew of the legendary Allman Brothers drummer Butch Trucks. At only 18 years old, Duane is already an extremely talented musician in his own right.

In celebration of Duane's arrival, the ESB released their third record, "Havana". Arguably their best work to date, "Havana" captures the essence of the band. Deeply rooted in the Blues, their performance recalls the sound of the 60s and 70s Blues Rock era.

Amazing player, close your eyes and you hear SRV, but not just a copy..., he has his own style.Little wing is fantastic, as are his own songs, especially song 5 Hope to see him live in Holland, keep up the good work Eric

Getting Better & Better!!
Eric is a real compilation of all of his mentors...Clapton, SRV, All the Kings, Hendrix etc. with a mix of his own soul..Just like it should be. I have turned a # of musicians on to him that had not heard of him & we all agree. Eric is well ahead of where Johnny Lang was at the same age. It will be interesting to hear his voice continue to mature & catch up to his incredible playing. I'm a 63yr old guitar playing wanna be!!! Keep rockin' Eric!


Great stuff, what's better is the best is yet to come. Pressure, pressure.
Everything you think it will be and more. Turn it up loud. Preferably outside with a bottle of cold beer.


Great album! Keep it up Eric!
Love the CD! Keep up the good work! Wish you were playing live somewhere in Georgia!


Eric is simply amazing on all the tracks. And now his voice is catching up to his playing. What a bright future you have Eric. Keep on kicking them out.

Marc Cerrato

A great blues player on the rise
I just bought this cd and if you want great blues this is the one for you. Every song on this cd without a doubt great. No skipping to the next song, you have to hear them all. No dissapointments on this disk at all.


Virtuoso Playing!!!
I have his other 2 CDs, and Eric gets better with age. His chops are truly incredible, and his voice is rounding out really well. I enjoyed the CD, and the only thing that I felt took a bit away is that his superb technique sometimes overshadows gut-level emotion that would show through with far less notes.

He gets better with age
Eric has reached new heights with his guitar on this release. He was pretty damn good a few years ago but now he is as good as the best. And the voice is still great, too.


The CD is awesome!! I love it this kid will do great things!!!
