The Sound

Tonight, on The Sound we have an exclusive debut by midwestern artist Erik Shicotte titled Miss’ry Pacific. Miss’ry Pacific is Erik’s debut EP and is being released on Shooter Jennings’ Black Country Rock Records this Friday, July 16th. Tonight, we get to hear all six tracks from the EP, along with stories of how the songs and the EP came together to create what Erik calls a manifestation of midwestern guilt. The EP moves from track to track like the transcontinental railroad rolling across the countryside, touching on themes of wanderlust, love, and of course… trains! Erik, a Milwaukee native, joins us on the phone tonight to help us dig into each track telling story after story along the way. From the EP’s connections to Colter Wall to the record ending up on Shooter Jennings’ Black Country Rock Records, Erik has been on a wild ride and tonight he shares it all with us. So climb aboard and hold on tight, I’m Bill Stoneberg with Erik Shicotte and his debut EP Miss’ry Pacific, tonight on The Sound.
Original air date: 07/14/21.
The Sound is written and produced by KQAL 89.5FM on the campus of Winona State University.
The Sound is made possible by a grant from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
