Erik grew up as the son of an ELCA minister and a piano teacher. His earliest memories are sitting on a piano bench with his mother listening to his father sermonize. It is from this familial past that his love of music emerges; it is also the introduction to what would later become his career – musician, director and producer. For the past 23 years, he have been accompanying services, directing choirs, and celebrating music as an integral part of worship. It is this very part of worship that he so look forward to sharing with you!
