Here I am back at the Lincoln Theatre on a Sunday evening to see another artist that I never had the chance to see, let alone photograph. Mister Eric Johnson. My editor asked me to arrive early and catch the opening act, Arielle. I’m glad she did. I was very impressed by this young lady’s performance. What a beautiful voice! Arielle is also a great multi-instrumental player too–she is the total package! Arielle served as the perfect opening act for guitarist extraordinaire, Eric Johnson. I would definitely want to see her as the main act sometime soon. She could be the love child of Diana Krall and Joe Satriani–that would give you an idea of how Arielle sounds.
And then she introduced Tommy Taylor, Kyle Brock and Eric Johnson. What a great segue! I first heard Eric Johnson when I was still living in Brazil and he recorded with Joe Satriani and Steve Vai on the first G3 project tour. This introduction led me to Ah Via Musicom, which was the first Eric John solo album I listened to, and “Cliffs of Dover” has stuck with me since then. What a perfectly melodic song!
