Blues-rock ripper Eric Gales is at Prairie Sun recording his new full-length album which runs the gamut from down-home country blues to heavy, driving rock. The album, which draws inspiration from Robert Johnson, Chuck Berry, Black Sabbath, and Jimi Hendrix showcases Gales uncompromising musical talent, sheer mastery of the guitar and his reverence for blues and the roots of rock.
Not his first album at Prairie Sun, Gales is working with a familiar team. Being signed to Shrapnel Label Group under the imprint Blues Bureau, Eric has recorded numerous albums with Shrapnel president Mike Varney as active producer and Prairie Suns Jason DOttavio working as head engineer and additional engineering by Prairie Sun owner Mark Mooka Rennick. The rhythm section formed by Eric Gales Band veteran bassist Steve Evans and Cotati, CA native drummer Aaron Haggerty provides a robust, yet dynamic backbone for Erics searing leads.
