This is a group of experienced, no nonsense professionals that takes pride in song crafting, musicianship and venturing outside of the proverbial box. Lead singer and songwriter, Erich Munzner’s rich, baritone voice and uncanny ability to turn inner complexity into a simple stream of thought is the catalyst for a group that retains a highly touted resume of musical accomplishments and relationships.
Drummer and Butte, MT native, Rick Elliott, spent his early days backing Loggins & Messina and trotting the globe recording with guitar god Walter Trout whilst also playing stints with Otis Rush. Classically trained bassist and Pittsburgh, PA native, Hank Van Sickle, has been touring with blues legend, John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers for the last eight years and his musical lineage is exemplified by his father, Rodney, who played double bass for the Pittsburgh Symphony, The Cleveland Orchestra and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. Left handed virtuoso guitarist, Kevin Cash, embodies all that any guitar aficionado would desire. He often trades vintage guitars and chops with his good friend and fellow lefty, Cesar Rosas of Los Lobos and has performed with numerous Southern California projects before lending his talents to Good Fortune. Rounding out the foursome is front man Erich Munzner. He opts to primarily play acoustic guitar these days, but he first gained notoriety as an electric guitar slinger himself fronting the Seattle, WA based blues/rock band, The Bone Daddies. Munzner was signed to an independent label in 2003 and fulfilled his obligation for the one album deal with the release of Soul Voyage (Carousel Records 2004) produced and engineered by Jon Lowry at Artisan Sound Recorders in Hollywood, CA. The album featured cameos by legendary saxophonist Albert Wing of Frank Zappa fame and percussionist Butch Smalls of George Clinton’s Parliament Funk.
