ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From the road to the stage, a smile on just one face….it feels like home…..

Supported by solid session performances from Duane Trucks on Drums and Mike Esposito on Bass Guitar, “Feels Like Home” marks another stunning achievement for Eric as the former teen Blues phenom is now a matured guitarist who combines his Bluesy feel with eclectic influences and modern songwriting..............

Music has shaped Eric’s life since the day he was born. As a cranky infant he was soothed to sleep by the early 90s sounds of Country Music Television. As he learned to walk his first steps were to the cassette player where his personal favorites were The Allman Brothers and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Childhood piano lessons soon turned into Blues jams and before long he picked up his first Fender Stratocaster. There was no looking back…..

After sitting in with some of the finest performers in his Pennsylvania hometown, Eric's passion for the Blues enabled him to soon 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, Bnois King, Solomon Burke, Ronnie Baker Brooks and Hubert Sumlin.

With a feeling and natural ability that could not be explained for someone so young, Eric delivered a Freddie-BB-Albert King influenced performance with an intensity and skill that belied his youth.

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 November of 2003 the "ESB" appeared at the Sarasota Blues Festival where Eric’s powerful set and cameo appearances became the talk of the day. Before the night was over Eric was introduced by John Mayall as the youngest person ever on stage with the Bluesbreakers.

Eric left a lasting impression on Mayall and 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. In early 2005 Eric traveled to Los Angeles where he joined Mayall for session work on the Bluesbreaker's "Road Dogs" record.

The ESB developed their own faithful following through years of club gigs and festival appearances including opening sets in support of Marcia Ball, Tommy Castro, Shemekia Copeland and B.B. King.

The band released a studio record titled "High Action" in 2004 and traveled to Holland and Belgium in 2005 for a 10 concert tour promoted by Rounder-Europe and King Bee Music.

After relocating to Jacksonville, Florida, Eric was introduced to Duane Trucks who joined the band in late 2005 on drums. Music fans may immediately recognize Duane as Derek's younger brother and the nephew of Butch Trucks.

In celebration of Duane's arrival, the ESB released their third record, "Havana". Deeply rooted in the Blues, that live recording recalled the sound of the 60s and 70s Blues Rock era.

In support of the European release of "Live at Havana" through Rounder-Europe, the ESB returned to Holland in 2006 where they had the honor to open for Johnny Winter at The Paradiso in Amsterdam and appeared at the Tegelen Blues Rock Festival.

The Summer of 2007 marked another milestone for Eric as the band played several prominent American music festivals and earned rave reviews and new fans during tours in Holland, Germany, Belgium and Italy, including a prime time performance at the legendary Pistoia Blues Festival where he opened in prime time for John Mayall and Gregg Allman.

INCREDIBLY TALENTED
Eric: When will you becoming to RI. My husband and I saw you at Musicfest in Bethleham PA a few weeks back. 2nd row seats. Both of us are amazed at such great talent you have for such a young musician. We purchased your latest CD, and are telling all our (50ish) year old friends about you. You should look into playing a the Newport Musical Festivals next summer. Keep up the great work. You are going places.

Blues with a Southern touch - Highly Recommended!!!
Anyone who ever witnessed Eric Steckel playing live (you should!), knows that the stage IS his HOME. Intense, almost trancelike, energetic performances that are all about music, HIS MUSIC, in which beautiful and soulful guitar playing reflects every nuance of his emotions.

Following Eric for several years now, this great new studio album is one step up again in his still very young life and career. As with his previous albums, apart from a few fine covers, most of the songs are originals with strong compositions and lyrics; good singing too!

Blues orientated music with a Southern touch seems to be the style Eric is most comfortable with at this point in his musical development, and who could object to that? But like all really great musicians, he won’t let himself be restricted to a defined genre or idiom. Especially the lovely “Tuscany” illustrates this clearly. Martin Taylor, Tommy Emmanuel, beware!

What a great disc! I saw him play at the Mississippi Valley Blues Fest in 2006. He killed me! Thats where I picked up Havana. If you get a chance to see him live, DO IT! He is amazing.

Feels Like Home
Wow!!! I've bought every album of Eric's. As with the rest of them, he continues to mature. His guitar work is stellar, but his writing is where he really shines. The way he arranges the 3 covers is tremendous. I also bought John Mayall's Road Dogs CD with Eric playing on Chaos In The Neighborhood. Immediately you know it's Eric on guitar. Awesome!!! So right know I've everything that Eric's done on CD. I'm very happy about that. He continues to amaze and now I'm looking forward to finally seeing him perform in New Hope, Pa. on May 17th. I've been waiting along time for this show & having Eric blow me away in person. I feel he's a well ground man & I wish him continued success. This latest CD Feels Like Home is a MUST HAVE!!!
