Biography

In 2004, Erich moved, sight unseen, from his hometown of Wichita, KS, to Nashville, TN. After spending the first five years playing in bands around the local scene, he got the gig playing for Grammy nominated country artist David Nail, touring steadily from 2009 to 2013. Since the fall of 2013, Erich has been drumming for country artist Kip Moore as a member of his band, The Slowhearts. Together, they've toured extensively throughout the US, Canada, Europe, and Australia. He has also had the opportunity to write and record with Kip. Some of Erich's contributions can be heard on the albums Wild Ones (songwriting), Slowheart (drums), and Wild World (songwriting and drums).
