Eric Krasno

For nearly two decades, Eric Krasno has been an omnipresent figure in popular music. We've heard his virtuosic, innovative guitar playing with Soulive and Lettuce (both of which he co-founded), seen him onstage supporting the likes of the Rolling Stones, Dave Mathews Band, John Mayer and The Roots, watched him take home multiple GRAMMY Awards, and benefited from his deft, behind-the-scenes work as a producer and songwriter for everyone from Norah Jones, Tedeschi Trucks, and 50 Cent to Talib Kweli, Aaron Neville, and Allen Stone. Krasno's recent solo album, 'Blood From A Stone,' reveals a previously unknown and utterly compelling side of his artistry, though, inviting us to bear witness as he both literally and metaphorically finds his voice.

Book of Queens

Read "Book of Queens" reviewed by Doug Collette


Released in 2023 with next to no fanfare, the very gestation of the Eric Krasno/Stanton Moore Project's first effort carries a cachet all its own. Recorded at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, New York, and mixed by Jim Scott (Tedeschi Trucks Band, Wilco), Book of Queens is tribute to women in music wherein the nine covers offer homage to the work of musical cons such as Nina Simone, Peggy Lee, and Aretha Franklin as well as contemporary figures of note ...

Eric Krasno: Reminisce

Read "Reminisce" reviewed by Doug Collette


There are no surprises on Soulive guitarist Eric Krasno's first solo album, but that's a good thing. Even with the familiar names involved in a project that's resulted in Reminisce, the music is fresh and wholly contemporary.The album was produced by Krasno, and features mostly his own material. Soulive drummer Alan Evans recorded and mixed, while his brother Neal appears on keyboards. Still, there's no apparent loss of objectivity: this is not a retreading of Soulive's music and, ...
