About Eric Gales
Eric Gales grew up in a musical family with four brothers, two of whom learned to play the guitar upside down and left handed in the same fashion that Eric does. Eric’s brother Eugene Gales played bass in the Eric Gales Band and his brother Little Jimmy King had a thriving career as a blues artist himself before his untimely death in 2002.
Eric released his first record in 1991, at the young age of 16, to an amazing response from the media and music fans around the globe. Guitar World Magazine Reader’s Poll named Eric “Best New Talent” in 1991. Through the years, it would not be unusual to look out in the audience and see the likes of Carlos Santana, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, B. B. King, and Eric Clapton looking on in amazement. Word was spreading about Eric as he was taking his God-given talents and working his crowds into a frenzy each night while on stage.
As both an African-American left-handed guitarist of extraordinary ability and an expressive vocalist, it is natural for people to compare Eric to Jimi Hendrix. More than a Hendrix clone, Eric has developed a personal and unique hybrid blues/rock sound that also draws upon influences as diverse as Albert King and Eric Johnson. With a unique blend of rock, funk and blues styles, Eric Gales stands head and shoulders among other guitarists in his genre and is out to blow your mind and expand your musical horizons!
