Erik Mongrain’s album, Equilibrium, is released this week in the US.

I’ll post a review later this week and an interview with Erik in the near future, but in the meantime you can check out his playing on YouTube here, and visit his website here.
Erik begins a month-long tour of the UK in November. Tai Irwin of the Boston Herald said, “…Mongrain demonstrates the percussive two-handed tapping technique he calls “air-tap” that makes   an acoustic guitar emit tones I never thought it could. It’s like Van Halen meets James Taylor; furious but soothing.”
