Eric Gales, Bluesman Extraordinaire, Live at Terminal West

Eric Gales is a unique talent and he brought his band to a packed house at Terminal West, Atlanta last week. Gales truly is a bluesman as he unabashedly tells his story during his live sets – in and out of prison, drug addiction and hard times. He’s singing and preaching and playing from the heart, all the while talking of being blessed by God with his talent. The audience clearly agrees as the crowd is enraptured by his stories and songs.
Gales plays a right-handed guitar upside-down and that contributes to his unique sound. I was fortunate to be able to capture the full 2.5 hour set below and you should catch Eric and his band if you can somewhere on this current Tour Schedule.
