Eric Gales grew up in a musical family with four brothers, two of them who 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 before his untimely death. Eric released his first record at Age 16 for Elektra records to an amazing response from the media and music fans around the globe. Guitar World Magazine’s Reader’s Poll named Eric as “Best New Talent,” in 1991. After recording a second record for Elektra, all three brothers teamed up for The Gales Bros. “Left Hand Brand” which was recorded for the House of Blues label in 1996.
Through the years, it would not be unusual to look out in the audience and see artists like Carlos Santana, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, B. B. King, and Eric Clapton, looking on with interest as Eric took his God-given talent and worked crowd after crowd into a frenzy. The new Millennium presented new opportunities for Eric and he was signed to a deal with Nightbird Records which was affiliated with the Hendrix family and distributed through MCA/Universal. Under this deal, Eric recorded the critically acclaimed record “That’s What I Am” in 2001 and hit the road, mesmerizing fans around the world with his uncanny connection to his guitar. In 2006 Eric recorded the critically acclaimed CD “Crystal Vision” for Blues Bureau and set the stage for his incredible Blues Bureau follow-up, “The Psychedelic Underground.” in 2007. Eric followed sharply in 2008 with “The Story of my Life” and in 2010 hit a new stride altogether with the incredibly successful album “Relentless”. That album combined with his latest studio album “Transformation” released in 2011 set the stage for his upcoming Double Live Album/DVD due in October of 2012.
As both an African-American left-handed guitarist of extraordinary ability and an expressive vocalist, it is natural for people to compare Eric to Hendrix but Eric has developed a unique hybrid blues/rock sound that also draws upon influences as diverse as Albert King and Eric Johnson. A unique amalgam of styles, Eric Gales stands head and shoulders among other guitarists in his genre.”
The Austin Mo Xperience
Austin Morgan aka (Austin Mo) is a singer, songwriter and blues/rock guitar prodigy from northern California. He received his first guitar at the age of 12 and from that moment his life was changed forever! Since that time, he has spent countless hours studying and fine-tuning his guitar skills learning from his idols such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix to Joe Bonamassa. At the age of 16, he was one of 5 kids chosen from the US to attend the worlds first international Blues Camp in London, England under the instruction of the amazing Fernando Jones, founder of The Blues Kids of America. That same year Austin Mo was inducted into The Brotherhood of The Guitar (a hall of fame for upcoming talented guitar players from around the world) that was founded by Steve Vai and Robert M. Knight. With his Induction, he is sponsored by Guitar Center and Ernie Ball. Since that time Austin Mo has focused on putting together a high energy band with influences from Hendrix to Zeppelin to Lenny Kravitz. He is backed by incredibly talented professionals, Kevin Crider on bass and keyboards and Matt Westfall on drums. In January of 2018, AMX performed at The World Famous Whisky A Go-Go opening for Strawberry Alarm Clock as well as performing in VIP Foundation Room in The House of Blues in Anaheim, California with rave reviews. The Xperience has been working hard over the past year creating their self-titled EP which is due for release late Spring of 2018!
