"I take great pride in recommending Erik Himel for sessions and music production work. He's the ideal combination of new ideas, musicality, great guitar chops, sounds, parts, and vibe. Recently I put him up for a record date with producer/drummer/songwriter/Rock N' Roll Hall of Famer Matt Sorum. Erik went to the date without previously hearing the music and ended up playing on more than twice the tracks he was called for. I know I can send Erik to the date and it will be great."
