Erik Matthew Hendel
has had the great fortune of being surrounded by music and encouraged
to learn and perform music since he can remember. In addition to
singing in a boys choir in elementary school and playing in the
school band from the fifth grade on (starting with clarinet and,
in high school, adding trombone), Erik has played guitar and bass
and sang with a number of bands in his hometown of Youngstown, Ohio
since the early nineties. Most notably, his more than 5 year involvement
as guitarist with the band Raul took him to the stages of many clubs
throughout Northeast Ohio and Western Pennsylvania, and once even
to the legendary CBGB in New York.
In 2003 he moved to Phoenix, Arizona, and after a short time of
solo songwriting and recording, the path of his musical career merged
with Haiku Rd.
