Him and #BrezoiulLumii only met each other once, no earlier than this year. But since the first moment it was such a natural encounter, tho surreal. We all instantly felt like an obvious need for him to grace our stage at least once again.
This Diamond Man, top-of-the-top artist is coming back, at Open Air Blues Festival Brezoi 2023. You probably guessed by now, as recollections about him here, last summer, stirred up great hype on our communication channels. But a more "formal" confirmation is in order.
So, dear friends, Eric Gales! And no additional wording necessary.
Eric Gales, born in Memphis, Tennessee, is one of the most talented American blues-rock guitarists. Hailed as a child prodigy, Eric Gales picked up the guitar at age four and at 16 he released his first album, The Eric Gales Band, with his brother Eugene and drummer Huwbert Crawford.
Being right-handed, he learned to play from his older brothers, who were left-handed, and from here the explanation of the unusual way he holds the guitar, left and upside down. He's called 'The God Gifted Guitarist'. In 1991, readers of Guitar World magazine named him Best New Talent. In 2019 Gales won the world's best Blues-Rock Artist in 2019 at the Blues Music Award.
