Roots Rock Singer-Songwriter Erik Lunde was raised in Mapleton, Wisconsin, a nowhere town of about 150 people and 2,000 cows. His parents were Norwegian Hippie Lutherans gone Southern Baptist, subsequently his earliest exposure to music was old protestant hymns, spirituals, bluegrass and gospel, as well as the Simon and Garfunkel, Elton John, and Bob Dylan records his parents hid in the closet. As a kid he loved both the Beatles and the Stones and refused to choose which was better. His greatest musical memory as a child was listening to Queen's "We Will Rock You" on a little green transistor radio as he hid in the bathroom in the dark to hide from the wrath of the Lord and his devout relatives. He ran West to California a week after his high school graduation and came under the influence of Jim Morrison, Carlos Castaneda, Walt Whitman, and Jack Kerouac. He has been wandering and writing songs ever since. Sometimes when he is singing he thinks he is an old black woman, but the sound never comes out that way. He currently lives and plays in Fort Collins Colorado with his new band the Born Again Sinners. They are coming soon to a venue near you...
