Eric Tollefson

Eric Tollefson grew up in Juneau, Alaska, and began playing music at age 8. At 12, he performed at the Juneau Folk Festival. After writing his first song at 18, he dove into music. With the encouragement of friends, Tollefson continued to play while attending the University of Montana. After college, he found a home in Bend, OR where he worked on his first record release entitled The Sum of Parts. Since the release, Tollefson has worked hard to establish and build his draw in the Northwestern United States. He and his band have shared stages with Robert Randolph and The Family Band, G. Love and Special Sauce, Jackie Greene, Tyrone Wells, and Paula Cole. Work on his sophomore record is under way, and is slated for release in 2012. Thanks to Gabe and friends at In the Pocket Artists for the connect to Eric's fine catalogue!!!
