"I am a chameleon and a social scientist. I love rock and roll music. I play guitar badly and extremely enthusiastically. I have a knack for hanging out with musicians and discovering some inner truth. I graduated from Swarthmore College in 1988 with a degree in Sociology and nary a clue as to what to do with myself. I was saved from a life of drudgery (or at least an actual job) by an offer to do photography for hometown buddies the Dave Matthews Band before they signed their record deal. My career has been a joyous, topsy-turvy ride ever since. I work with musicians of virtually any genre of music so long as there is some level on which I can relate to the artist and their tunes. Check out my credit list and you will see rock, country, hip-hop and all kinds of acts that fall in between the cracks of these overly didactic classifications. This is where the social scientist in me comes to life, watching, listening and rendering with a critical but loving eye. I don't know what else to say, except that I try to count my lucky stars everyday and kiss my wife and my two little girls every night." - Sam Erickson
