Combining influences from an array of genres and his work as a touring guitarist for Grammy winning bands, New Orleans artist Eric Johanson creates blues-based alternative roots rock in his rising solo career.

Below Sea Level was recorded at Zebra Ranch in late February 2020, with Terrence Grayson (Victor Wainwright) on bass, and Ray Jacildo (JD McPherson) providing an additional B3 organ on one track.  The album features 12 original songs penned by Johanson. 

“The songs deal a lot with rebuilding and reorienting the mind and one’s relationship to the world,” Eric explains. “With this album I was finally able to bring my blues and rock influences to a place of more imagination and creativity, while keeping it organic and honest. It’s contemporary music naturally grown from the roots of southern blues and psychedelic inspiration.”
