Performing with Frankie J!

Boy it's been a while since my last post and I feel ashamed of myself. I've kept promising more consistent posting on my blog but have found it harder to do than I thought it would. I guess I'm going to have to really force myself to dig in and write. With that being said, here we go. Well this past Monday August 13th, I had the distinct pleasure to perform with Universal Music Artist Frankie J. I have to say I was quite surprised by what a great and humble person he turned out to be. He definitely has his feet on the ground and has the right idea about everything. He is a HUGE talent and what a great singer, WOW!

We ended up doing three TV show tapings for him. One was for the morning show here in LA for Univision called 'Primera Edicion' then shortly after we did 'Lanzate' and then finally later that evening we were in Burbank for the TV taping of a crazy ass show called 'Estudio 2'. I wish Frankie J. nothing but massive success. He's on tour now with J. Lo and Enrique Iglesias. You should go check him out. Below is a shot with me and Frankie J. before we did the show on the set of 'Primera Edicion'. Yeah I know it's a little blurry.

Eric Knight | PM Industry Showcase at King King 3.28.2012

HOLY CRAP! What an amazing time we had last Wednesday night at the Persistent Management | Symbiotic Nation Music Industry Showcase at King King in Hollywood. I can safely say this was one of my best performances and overall the bands best performance ever! There was just an AMAZING energy and electricity flowing through the air that evening and it definitely showed.

There were two other incredible acts on the bill that evening. Indie rockers Satellite Sky from Australia and Latin Pop-Rock star Ignacio Val. Satellite Sky is one of my favorite new bands to come on to the scene. They just released an EP late last year that I cannot stop playing. Infectious tunes and just great sound. They have something extremely special going on and I'm very excited to be working with them. I can't wait to see what's around the corner for them.

Ignacio Val's set was simply great! He has all the makings of a major superstar and this evening's performance was no exception. Every song in his set is a potential radio single and just the energy and charisma that he exudes is just unstoppable. I'm very proud of how far he has come.

I also wanted to thank the crew that we had that evening. Nick Gallagher, Tomas Wolfe, Moshe Yosef. You guys were FRICKEN AMAZING and I am so grateful for your acts of kindness and help it was truly beautiful to watch.

Also to our production crew documenting the evening: Gerson Segura, Mario Amadeau & Daniel Hodge what beautiful images you captured. I'm truly blown away and can't wait to show the material to everyone.

To our AMAZING host Erin Darling who was very gracious to lend us her talents, Erin thank you!

And to my asst and right hand girl Brooke Griffin. Without you it simply would not have got done. Your time and energy towards this show was simply breathtaking and I have a deep debt of gratitude for everything that you have done. :)

And to our special guest musicians that evening: Rochella Brown & Ken Hikaro thank you so much for lending us your talents on "Happy Together" it was amazing. And to my sweety Rochella it was awesome to finally share the stage with you even if it was for only one song. :)

And of course my band: To Greg, Forrest & Daniele. What can I say. I am blessed, honored and privileged that you would even consider performing with me. You certainly make me look great and I am eternally grateful and love you guys tremendously!

With that I will leave you with a bunch of pictures from the other night and there is more to come. Hope you enjoy. Blessings. Eric

Holy CRAP! The Year In Review Pt. 4 and final 2012 is already here!

I can't believe that we are already 13 days into 2012. Man where is the time going? It seems like time and space are moving even faster than the speed of light. Is it all the technology the constant barrage of marketing or is just information overload? I personally think it's all of the above. It's amazing yet tragic at the same time if that makes any sense. I guess will just have to press along and see what's around the corner.

Well enough of my pontificating I wanted to give you my final dose of the year that was 2011 for me. 2011 was the year of bad hairdos for me. In my infinite wisdom of wanting to have my hair long again, I decided to just let it go and yes indeed it went and boy was it BAD! Below are some brief glimpses into the insanity of which was my hair in 2011. I know yuck it up as much as possible, you don't have to live with those images the rest of your lives, I do! :(

DON'T TRY THIS HAIR DO AT HOME!!!


2011 was also a big year for traveling for me. I was incredibly blessed and honored to have traveled to some amazing locations. From South America I was in Bolivia which was a place that was very near and dear to my heart. It was a great experience and the people are very humble so it was a pleasure.

I was also in the Carribean this year on a couple of occasions and had the pleasure of traveling via ship which was a really cool experience. We visited Nassau, St. Thomas, Tortola, Half Moon Cay, Cozumel, Ocho Rios & Grand Turk.  I had the pleasure to work along side some big names in music and relax at the same time, it was simply AMAZING! Below is a brief re-cap of sights from those travels. Can't wait to do it again in 2012.












THE END!
HAPPY 2012 EVERYONE
