The co-founding guitarist for Soulive and Lettuce, Grammy-winning bandmate in Tedeschi Trucks, and producer for Norah Jones and 50 Cent welcomes PG into his new California home studio for a tour of his tone treats.
[Facing a mandatory shelter-in ordinance to limit the spread of COVID-19, PG enacted a hybrid approach to filming and producing Rig Rundowns. This is the seventh video in that format, and we stand behind the final product.]
In this episode, we catch up with longtime Brooklyn musical fixture Eric Krasno who has co-founded funky jam outfits Lettuce and Soulive, played bass and guitar with Tedeschi Trucks Band and Phil Lesh and Friends, and has written/produced with diverse artists like Justin Timberlake, Talib Kweli, Norah Jones, and 50 Cent. He recently made the transcontinental trek to relocate in SoCal providing him more collaborative opportunities and a residence with a full studio space. The guitarist, bassist, producer, and now podcaster, welcomes PG’s Chris Kies into his new recording dojo for a fascinating chat covering his path from guitarist to producer to singer/songwriter, explaining the development of his signature Ibanez, detailing how singers influence his playing style, and admitting he produces others tougher than himself.
