A Folk-Rock Poet & Americana Songsmith
Erik Lunde Description
A Folk-Rock poet and Americana songsmith with a captivating voice, cinematic songs, and a dynamic stage presence, Colorado-based artist Erik Lunde "pens lyrics that are haunting and memorable poetry married with one of the widest arrays of melodies this area knows". Born and raised in small townWisconsin, Lunde left his midwestern home two weeks after his high school graduation and and wandered all over the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Europe, hopping from place to place like a character in a Jack Kerouac novel, searching for stories and songs and experiences, and chalking up about 40 different addresses across North America, Erik Lunde is a songwriter and musician whose songs and sound bears the geography, culture, and history of his midwestern origins. Influenced by a wide variety of genres including gospel hymns, bluegrass, traditional country, rock & roll, and artists like Elton John, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, The Beatles, and David Bowie - Lunde has created his own genre-bending mashup that reflects that dichotomy.
