HI RES "GOOD VIBRATIONS" ALBUM COVER JPG

Growing up in the rugged mountains of western Colorado, Erik Stucky learned to play the mandolin at the age of 10, taking lessons from the internationally acclaimed bluegrass legend, John Moore. Moore had one condition; that Stucky pay for lessons by doing chores on Moore’s ranch, proving with his hard work that he really wanted to learn (it didn’t come as easily as his parents simply paying for lessons). Over the years, Stucky frequented folk and bluegrass festivals in the area and quickly became obsessed with the music of New Grass Revival while his peers listened to radio top 40 artists. 

 

The mandolin player is known for his easy listening voice and lyrics (think Jack Johnson or Jason Mraz). Following the release of his debut album Stray Clouds in 2017, Stucky relocated to Nashville, Tennessee where his artistry and musicianship have continued to flourish. 

 

Stucky has performed across the United States and Europe. Performing on the mandolin and guitar, Stucky combines his passion for lyric writing, folk instrumentation, and big band arrangements as he seeks to break new creative ground in Nashville’s popular music scene. Stucky's unique style is beautifully exemplified in his sophomore album, Good Vibrations. 

When he’s not writing or playing music, Stucky enjoys exploring the outdoors, reading, practicing martial arts, hunting, and eating great food.

Erik Stucky’s Island-inspired album, Good Vibrations (August 6, 2021), is exactly what the title suggests and a perfect soundtrack for a post-COVID summer. M Music & Musicians Magazine called the title track “a catchy, radio-ready, calypso-infused cocktail of joy—a strong contender for one of this year’s summer anthems.” The singer-songwriter recently released singles “Don’t Stop Raining,” and “Easy on Me” (May 28). “Nothing To It” (June 25) and “Heaven Only Knows” (July 16) will follow, leading up to the full 10-track album’s release on August 6.
