Neil Erickson, now based in Santa Barbara with his band, has a unique blend of sounds ranging from acoustic folk to rock and roll. His recent releases showcase his versatility and talent as a songwriter and vocalist. Neil is signed to We’wey Records. 

“It’s an honor to come home to Santa Cruz and perform with Jacob. I think our styles complement each other well and create a diverse and dynamic show. I can’t wait to play some new songs for the Santa Cruz crowd,” Neil said.
