Matt Erion

After years of playing in various groups in the Chicago area, I finally found the perfect combination of musicians. The Matt Erion trio has been together since 1999. The other members are Jim Abrahamson on Piano and Dave Anderson on Drums. Our first release is the culmination of five years of performing togehter. At the beginning of 2003 we decided to perform our own material exclusively. All three of us contribute compositions and our style is best described as mainstream with some contemporary sounds sprinkled in. We continue to perform at our favorite clubs in the Chicago area, and hope to branch out to other markets and venues in the coming year.
