Live at Lakeview: Southern rock – Jack Berry, Erick Baker
June 28, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Southern rock on the beach: Live at Lakeview presents Jack Berry and Erick Baker. Jack Berry has “a voice that could scare the venom out of a rattlesnake,” as Consequence of Sound describes it. Originally from Reno, Berry left Los Angeles after performing along the West Coast as duo, deciding Nashville would be a key in helping cultivate the style and sound he envisioned. It wasn’t long before the “ample supply of good hooks and riffs,” Nashville Scene explained, eventually gained the praise of critics, earning him spots at well-known festivals including CMA Fest, North by Northeast in Toronto, New York City’s CMJ Music Marathon, SXSW’s Red Gorilla Festival and Hard Rock Cafe’s North American battle of the bands (which he won). Singer-songwriter Erick Baker is a Tennessee native who makes his home in Knoxville. Unlike many musicians, he didn’t grow up onstage. He taught himself how to play guitar after college. Since then “music has been one of the greatest blessings in my life,” he said. “It’s taken me to parts of the world I would’ve never seen and connected me with people I would’ve never met. It’s given my life purpose.” Baker has shared the stage with the likes of John Legend, James Blunt, Gavin DeGraw, Edwin McCain, the Goo Goo Dolls, Grace Potter, Brandi Carlile and Heart.
