Bozeman, Montana

The rich, colorful backdrop of Montana has shaped the songs and thoughts of singer/songwriter Dennis Erickson. Iny any of his songs you might hear, smell or see Montana as he’s seen it, whether from the perspective of a lost firefighter in the Lolo National Forest watching the fire seek him out like a predator or a man alone with his thoughts, “knee deep in a mountain stream, living the fisherman’s dream” as in his haunting song “I Let Her Go.” You’ll feel the joy of the open road in his song, “Lost Highway” and the eerily captivating feeling of the outdoorsman who seeks his true nature IN nature in the song “Tall Timber.” He’ll draw you in near the fire with road songs like “Blue Highway” and explore the naievete of a young man seeing a large city for the first time in a song called “The Last Best Place.” The subject of the heart is always close by in songs like “The People In This House” , “Rusty Love” and “Your Side of Town”. You’ll get to know some characters, too, like Hawkeye Cain and Rose in the song “Hawkeye’s Wild Rose” a song set in Butte, Montana at a time when it was the Richest Hill On Earth. Or you might meet a 1963 DeSoto who likes to flirt with the men who admire her. All in all, it’s fun, real and worth the time spent discovering this true Montana artist.
