Rainy Day Karma

by Eric Sommer & Solar Flares

Eric Sommer broke out of the Boston folk music scene with a mixture of roots-pure, fingerstyle acoustic guitar and new wave pop, a blurred combination of Nick Lowe, The Cars and Spider John Koerner influences.

Album Notes
"After years as founder and uber-guitar player for Boston power-pop cult band The Atomics and tours with The Dead Kennedys, Gang of 4, Mission of Burma and Nick Lowe bands Bram Tchaikovsky, Wreckless Eric and so, so many others IN the folk and acoustic scene like Chris Smither, Sarah Watkins, John Hammond and Jon Dee Graham, Eric has come full circle.

Full circle back the roots he knows so well. And does with such remarkable skill and clarity. An admirer of David Bromberg, Leon Redbone, Taj Mahal and Joe Pass and schooled by Steve Howe (YES) and Mic Goodrick (Gary Burton Quartet, Pat Metheny), this show will make you a believer, too..."
