In this special Wednesday broadcast of Dudes n Beer host Christopher Jordan is joined in studio by Steven Bishop, Julie Connally and special guest the amazing Eric Tessmer. Born and raised outside of the small town of Richland Center, Wisconsin, Tessmer began playing at a young age, inspired by his father and grandmother. In 2000, he moved to Austin at the age of 19 to play gigs with numerous musicians and bands, earning local credibility as he honed his craft of riffing with speed, power and control. He later formed his own power trio, the Eric Tessmer Band, in 2003. Through a battered ’59 Fender Stratocaster producing vintage-correct tones, Eric kickstarts the engine left idling by guitar players of the past. Join us as we explore what it takes to make it from the Austin music scene, to success on the national stage and beyond. How did Eric get his start in the music industry and how has he crafted such a unique sound that has been heard the World over? What inspires this talented artist to write his music and what can we expect next from this amazing talent from the Austin scene? These questions and more in this episode of the Dudes n Beer podcast with Eric Tessmer.
