“Erik Eldenius has been playing the drums for me for over 4 years and it has been a fantastic experience. Erik has all the chops I need & can play anything I ask. He has recorded for me & my producer Keith Forsey over this period and the results have been up to & beyond the usual Idol standards. Erik has a great & easy going personality, is well educated and has been in the business as a session drummer for many years which speaks for itself. He’s a groover & I sing to his feel on stage. Its been a fantastic time playing with him and I hope to have many more.
If you have Eldenius on the kit, you have a groover of genius”

“Rarely do you encounter a musician on the level of Erik Eldenius. Truly an absolute pleasure to work with. Erik is a drummer and producer that really listens to the artist and works totally to the benefit of the song. The fact that he’s one of the nicest guys I know is also a huge plus. I tour and record with Erik all the time, he’s just the “best of the best”
– Steve Stevens
“Erik Eldenius is one of the best drummers on the planet! He has incredible time and an amazing touch. His sensibilities are always dead on. Whenever I’m at a loss for what needs to happen in a song, Erik always has a great idea to offer. He is not just a great drummer; he is a consummate record maker. He hears the “big picture” and understands what the music needs. That’s what sets him apart as one of the great musicians of the world!”
– Brian Reeves – Producer, engineer, mixer – Billy Idol, U2, Selena Gomez, Miley Cirus.
“Erik Eldenius or Easy as I like to call him has helped me more than anyone else to help me sound good. It’s easy to work with him.
First of all, his drumming is consistent with a feel that leaves no doubt as to where the center of the groove is, and with a fat big drum sound that is unique. As an engineer he knows what his tools and toys can do so there’s very little waiting around between recording takes. As a producer he has been able on many occasions to find solutions outside of the box I often find myself in.
So if you think that you need to spend alot of time and money in the studio doing multiple takes to be sure than you should go work elsewhere. But if you’re better prepared with the song in your head, and you’re floating on the stream of creativity, Go pay Erik a visit”.
