Erik Mongrain

Canadian New Age guitarist Erik Mongrain was born on April 12, 1980, in Montreal, and got his start as a musician on the streets of his hometown, where he developed a playing style he called "lap tapping" that involved tapping chords on the strings of his instrument while holding it flat in his lap. He appeared on Lynda Lemay's 2005 album Un Paradis Quelque Part and wrote two songs for it. In 2006, he went back to playing the guitar in a more conventional manner. He released his first album, Fates, on Prophase Music on June 26, 2007. His second album, Equilibrium, followed on October 28, 2008. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

ashetter0 you are wrong he did not play anything in that movie http://en.wi k i p e d i a . o r g / w i k i / A u g u s t _ R u s h # M u s i c
Except for Dueling Guitars, all of August's guitar pieces were played by American guitarist-co m p o s e r Kaki King. King's hands are used in close-ups for August Rush.

OMG all guitar players have a respect for this dude! He is amazing! Definitely a skill only few have the patience to learn and even few can master it. I put myself out of those two categories wow this is pretty nice!
You all know that's Erik playing all the guitar pieces in the movie August Rush, right?

░ Awesome ░
Sounds like the second coming of the late, great Micheal Hedges, who's sudden death in car crash was a great loss for music lovers.

Very cool sound. If you like this you should also listen to Ewan Dobson. Search for Time2 and be amazed...

Wow. This guy is amazazing! If I could play like that I could die happy ;) lol
I have played he same 5 songs on my old guitar for ages. It is such a rush to sit and listen to someone who does so much with 6 or 12 strings. I love it....

Erik Mongrain is amazing! If you listen to the entire Fates CD you'll understand!

The song AirTap by Erik Mongrain is amazing!

Love your music!!!
I play some guitar myself therefore. I've grown respect for real music, such as classical instruments, i really don't care for pop. And when i here Eriks air tap i just want to here it over and over, thank you so much of doing what you do
Pretty Good. I just heard of this artist just today! Cool!
Wow, your songs r beautiful, keep it up

I, too, happened upon Erik in a Pandora shuffle....a n d yes, I, too, was and am mesmerized. I do like all the aforemention e d artists and listen to them regularly, however, Erik's music has struck a chord within me like no other. It is difficult to explain, but there is a depth and breath of soul within the compositions . The experience has a Mozart-esque (August Rush-esque) feeling, as if he were born with innate gift. The music transports to a deeper part of myself.

Love all of the fingerstyle players of today, Antoine Dufour, Andy Mckee, Erik Mongrain, the list continues to grow and I wish more people were exposed to their music and it's technical virtuosity.
Derr, August Rush... several posts below..
