that Eric does. Eric’s brother Eugene Gales played bass in the Eric Gales Band and his brother Jimmy King had a thriving career as a blues artist before his untimely death.
Eric released his first record at Age 16 for Elektra records to an amazing

learned to play the guitar upside down and left handed in the same fashion

Eric released his first record at Age 16 for Elektra records to an amazing
response from the media and music fans around the globe. Guitar
World Magazine’s Reader’s Poll named Eric as “Best New Talent,”
in 1991. After recording a second record for Elektra, all three brothers
teamed up for The Gales Bros. “Left Hand Brand” which was recorded
for the House of Blues label in 1996. Through the years, it would not
be unusual to look out in the audience and see artists like Carlos
Santana, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, B. B. King, and Eric Clapton,
looking on with interest as Eric took his God-given talent and worked
crowd after crowd into a frenzy. The new Millennium presented new
opportunities for Eric and he was signed to a deal with Nightbird
Records which was affiliated with the Hendrix family and distributed
through MCA/Universal. Under this deal, Eric recorded the critically
acclaimed record “That’s What I Am” in 1991 and hit the road,
mesmerizing fans around the world with his uncanny connection to
his guitar. Two years ago Eric recorded the critically acclaimed CD
“Crystal Vision” for Blues Bureau and set the stage for his incredible
Blues Bureau follow-up, “The Psychedelic Underground.” As both
an African-American left-handed guitarist of extraordinary ability and
an expressive vocalist, it is natural for people to compare Eric to
Hendrix but Eric has developed a unique hybrid blues/rock sound that
also draws upon influences as diverse as Albert King and Eric Johnson.
A unique amalgam of styles, Eric Gales stands head and shoulders
among other guitarists in his genre.
Eric’s third Blues Bureau record “The Story Of My Life” took the next
logical step in Eric’s career and followed by “Relentless” which was
rooted firmly in the blues, further establishing Gales as one of the rare
musical talents of his generation. “Transformation” is the next logical
step in this prolific artist’s career as it is deeply centered in the blues
but played with the edge and aggression of a young guitar hero.
