Awesome new site!!!
Eric is easily one of my favorite live musicians to see, period. His album In The Outside is FANTASTIC, and is still regularly in rotation after several years of enjoyment. Can't wait for the next album............
Every time I catch a show I learn something new about the guitar. Don't miss a chance to experience a performance by this band, you won't regret it!
I just recently heard for the first time this blues artist. He is the best! If I had to say who he sounds like it would be a cross between Jimmy Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughn, he makes love to his guitar. Wooo. Stays true to the old blues style. My favororite cut is called "Ceiling Fan Blues"! Now I ask ya.... I was surprised he has not been snapped up by the big labels. What makes it the best is he is a local Georgia boy and I can go to Savannah and see hime almost anytime!
An incredible album from an incredible player, Eric Culberson's "No Rules to the Game" shows us what the blues was like before the mainstream got ahold of it while at the same time delivering a fresh though reverent perspective as well as masterful innovation to the genre. With a voice that suits his chosen style perfectly, licks that might even have Stevie Ray and Johnny Winter peering over his shoulder, and lyrics that only one who has truly lived neck-deep in the south as well as blues, Eric's music is ear candy to both the new audience of blues fans as well as old-school enthusiasts.
Though I've seen Eric play a thousand times in Georgia, and indeed have played with him (and learned from him) on more than one occasion, this review is not influenced by a personal familiar bias; there are other blues guitarist from georgia who I hang out with and play with more often...but you won't see this high of praise from me on their album pages. It's just that Eric's superior talent is absolutely undeniable, and I often find myself enjoying his recordings more than even those of artists who are known the world over. If you want to know the REAL state of the progression of blues in 2009, the only way to do so is to buy this album now!
This is the second release from Eric Culberson. This is more of a historical document because he has develop from this snap shot in his career.Do i recommend it? Well hell yea! Eric is the best undiscovered talent on the planet! We all know the undiscovered guy is WAY BETTER than any discovered stuff. Like most blues artist, it is difficult to capture the talent on a recording. Anyone who has had the luck to check out Eric live will know what I am talkin bout. But if you don't happen to live in Savannah Georgia his recordings are just gonna have to do until you can get to see him live.
Blues Is My Religion is Eric's first CD, I think so anyway, and I like it because it's sort of a souveneir of his live performances, plus I bought it from him in person after a show.
This guy has mad skills on the pine, and he doesn't play games when it comes to being true to the music he loves, blues. I'm honored to have been able to hear him play in Crossroads blues club, and I'm chomping at the bit to see him at his own club, Savannah Blues. I would say his style is Chicago, straight up, when he's in the zone, but, he can adapt to just about anything that's thrown at him. He also plays some kick [butt] Texas blues ala... Freddy King, Albert Collins, and Albert King. Entertaining, always! Scary at best! WoooooooWeeeeeee. Makes me wanna scream! I love the guy and am looking forward to future releases. My favorite track on Blues is My Religion is Morning Light. Beautiful little melodies inside the main grooves make it a treat for a fellow guitarist. No Rules to the Game is better. The track Savannah Swing is legendary. Wow, tasty. Eric's got what it takes. No question.
