…  about singer, songwriter, bassist, and multi-instrumentalist Erik Kramer … Erik performs his original music under the moniker of ‘Erik Kramer & Friends’.  The band features Melina Harris, Sean Lally, and a network of premier musicians to put together an all star band for each show.  The music is a fusion of psychedelic, folk, funk, world music, rock n' roll, and soul lead as if it were a jazz combo. Each performance is a unique experience full of horns, electronic samples, and skilled musicianship navigating through intricate arrangements,  intriguing lyrics, tight vocal harmonies, and communicative improvisation. Erik is also a member of several bands, and performs as a session player and sideman with many other artists. Some of the bands that he is currently performing with are ‘Uprooted’ (formerly known as ‘Rusted Root’), ‘Darlingtyn’, ‘Luke & the Ego’, Taylor Kelly, Jacopo, and ‘Townstreet Criers’. Some of his former bands include ‘Morning Martyrs’, ‘Endangered Speeches’, ‘The Blind Woods’, ‘Sun Cut Flat’, and ‘Gracie Curran and the High Faultin’ Band’. Erik received his initial music training at the Philadelphia Clef Club of Jazz and Performing Arts.  (He now teaches there.) He had the honor of attending the Pennsylvania Governor’s School for the Arts, and is an award winning honors graduate of the Berklee College of Music.
