Eric Gales is a blues-rock guitarist, singer, and songwriter from Memphis. As evidenced by his debut album, 1991's Eric Gales Band, he has an overdriven tone melding hard rock- and R&B-infused blues licks that display his distinctly modern approach to the guitar, which reveals the influence of Jimi Hendrix, Robin Trower, Prince, and Vernon Reid. Gales issued two more solo outings before teaming with his siblings as the Gales Brothers on 1995's Left Hand Brand. 2001's That's What I Am marked a return to solo recording, and was produced by Geza X (Black Flag, Dead Kennedys). 2006's Hendrixian Crystal Vision was produced by Shrapnel's Mike Varney. Gales also helmed 2013's widely acclaimed supergroup power trio outing Pinnick-Gales-Pridgen. 2017's confessional Middle of the Road peaked at number four on the Blues Albums chart, while its follow-up, 2019's The Bookends, became Gales' first chart-topper. 2022's I Want My Crown was produced by Joe Bonamassa and Josh Smith. Rock and blues guitar phenom Eric Gales was born and raised in Memphis. Considered a prodigy, he learned to play at age four from older brothers Eugene and Manuel. Though right-handed, he imitated of their upside-down, left-handed style (which was passed down from their grandfather, Dempsey Garrett, Sr., who was known to jam with the likes of Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf). Winning his first blues contest at 11, Eric signed to Elektra four years later to issue The Eric Gales Band, his 1991 debut LP, recorded with Eugene on bass. Picture of a Thousand Faces followed in 1993. Manuel (who previously performed under the alias Little Jimmy King) reunited with his siblings for 1995's Left Hand Brand, credited to the Gales Brothers. Concert Tickets $35/ Reserved
