New Demo: "Sailing"

From A New Brain by William Finn


ACCLAIM


"Erickson is of a calibre that recommends him for the world stage: his dramatic and vocal skills are of the very highest standard."

 
 

"...As an actor and singer, he is incredibly empathetic. He finds the soul and still-beating heart of a number and a character and wears it bravely on his sleeve and in his throat and in his eyes: he is our centre, our gateway into the world of a person and a show."

"Erickson has a mellifluous voice and natural gravitas."

 
 

"Blake Erickson ...is a treasure: his speaking voice is full of gravitas, so he’s a natural fit for roles demanding it; and he’s also a commanding singer, with a supple, soaring tone. But what makes him such a gift is his natural comic instinct and timing; dignity is so intrinsic to the comedy straight man, and Erickson has it in spades."
