“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”
