Eric Tessmer, voted the Austin Chronicle best guitarist in 2018. Named Eric James, by his guitar playing father, in honor of two greats; Eric for Clapton and James for Jimi James Hendrix or born James Marshall Hendrix!
Eric moved to Austin when he turned 19, almost 20 years ago. And he plays a vintage 1959 Fender Strat that shows it’s age.
I first saw him play a SXSW kick off party and then more regularly each year at the Arlyn Studios SXSW Homecoming Party.
He recently opened for Slash at Stubb’s, when Slash came through town with Myles Kennedy & the Conspirators. Back in June, he played a Waterloo in-store appearance for his new album “Good So Bad”. Here is that title cut off of the new album:
Good So Bad…
I’ve seen him do some blistering numbers of Jimi Hendrix songs, here is one he did live, “Little Wing” a la the style of Stevie Ray Vaughan.
That was “See You Tonight”. And if you want to see him tonight, he will be playing at the Nutty Brown Amphitheater near my house in Cedar Valley, along with Monte Montgomery. So get out there and support live local music.
Thanks for listening.
