Groove – Episode #46: Damian Erskine

Damian Erskine

A fellow No Treble contributor! We’re super excited to bring you this conversation with our own Damian Erskine. He’s not just a regular contributor to No Treble, but he’s been here the longest. Longevity is a theme for this monster of a player. Damian is known for his ability to fit into any musical situation, extraordinary reading and improvising skills as well as being an educator (along with a columnist).

Damian has played in the studio or on the stage with the likes of Peter Erskine, The Jaco Pastorius Big Band, Gino Vannelli, Tony Furtado, and many others. He is an adjunct professor at Portland State University and has also appeared as an instructor at Gerald Veasley’s Bass Bootcamp, the National Guitar Workshop as well as the Berklee College of Music’s Guitar Week.

In addition to his weekly Q&A column on No Treble, Damian has written for Bass Player Magazine, Bass Musician Magazine as well as authoring his own books, Right Hand Drive and The Improvisor’s Path.

Enjoy the conversation…
