Brooklyn guitarist Jeff McErlain’s style of blues rock draws from his roots listening to Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Alan Holdsworth, Eddie Van Halen, and Michael Schenker. Heavily influenced by classic rock and metal, Jeff soon expanded his musical tastes to the jazz and fusion of Miles Davis and John Coltrane, as well as the classic blues of Howling Wolf and Little Walter.
Jeff has toured and performed with Robben Ford, David Grissom, Matt Schofield, Jimmy Haslip, Toss Panos, Keith Carlock, and others.
Jeff is an in demand instructor and clinician with almost 30 courses with TrueFire, and runs an online classroom, The Juke Joint. He has taught and performed at the Crown Guitar Festival, Bath Guitar Festival, Umbria Blues Festival, National Guitar Workshop, Ruby Mountain Guitar Festival, and Robben Ford’s Traveling Dojo.
Jeff is about to release his latest CD “Now” featuring Robben Ford, who both produced and performed on the record.
