"Some musicians are more than just musicians - they are musical magicians."
The finest Austin musician you've probably never heard of. No one I've ever encountered displays so regularly such gracefull mastery of his instrument, be it violin, guitar, mandolin, or even his distictive singing voice, as Erik Hokkanen. His compositions alone should list him among the greats of Texas music. Years from now I will brag how I used to play with such a legendary talent. -Mark Rubin
