Dave Erickson Dave Erickson

Dave Erickson is an acoustic and electric guitarist and composer from Denver, CO, USA. Dave’s influences and passion for music have spanned many genres of music including jazz, rock, blues, folk, & classical.

​Recently, in 2014, Dave collaborated with Jim Carr and formed the acoustic guitar duo New Latitude to share their passion for instrumental acoustic guitar music. Their recently released CD “Convergence” is all original music with great synergy and acoustic guitar interplay on every song. ​ ​Dave released the instrumental, contemporary jazz CD Pinnacle with the Dave Erickson Project (DEP) in 2013. Songs from the DEP Pinnacle CD continue to be heard on radio stations world- wide.


The Dave Erickson Project allows us a generous look and listen at contemporary jazz their way. Smooth yet packing a powerful punch where needed; sweet yet spicy when appropriate, the album is a clear satisfier throughout.

Both Erickson and Carr are master guitarists/soloists and clearly know how to fill the sonic space with amazing playing that flows across the ears like fine wine. At times can be passionate, aggressive and tenacious, hypnotic and passionate - other times fluid and flowing.

Both Dave Erickson and Jim Carr are not only world class players, they are also both talented musical visionaries not afraid to push the acoustical musical boundaries to the maximum.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
