About: CD Cover - The EricaJames Band
EricaJames started as a father/daughter duo out of small town in Texas south of San Antonio. Erica, born in Lake Charles, LA, has been playing violin since the age of 10 learning from such artists as Bobby Flores, a 2002 Grammy Award winning musician and composer. Her dad James born and raised in San Antonio, TX, has been playing the guitar since the age of 14. At age 13 Erica teamed with her dad James and they became known as EricaJames. The duo has had the opportunity to play with such greats as Michael Martin Murphy who has written and performed hits such as; Wildfire and What's Forever For, to opening for such groups as The Platters, who have earned 25 number 1 hits since the 50's. Erica's undying passion to master the violin and to play outside the traditional realm of the classical violin/fiddle, has gained her a large following in various genres of music. Erica and her dad James have been playing together for about 14 years, 5 of which they toured nationally. In the last 4 years Erica has adopted the name EricaJames as her own and now performs with a band who includes her father, James Foster on Acoustic, Rick Wescott on Bass, Justin Combs on Drums, and Cravin Harris on Lead Guitar.
