Prior to joining 1927, Erik played in some cover bands. His big break came when he was ‘discovered’ while performing on Hey! Hey! It’s Saturday’s now ‘infamous’ ‘Red Faces’. Late in 1986 guitarist Garry Frost (ex-Moving Pictures) saw the singer and was impressed enough to ask him to join the band he was forming. That band became 1927 and the rest, as they say, is history.
1927 re-grouped in 2009 for a series of national tours celebrating the band's 20th anniversary since their debut album, ...ISH, went multi-platinum. Other than Erik Weideman, each of the other three current members are new additions to the band.
In the last four years since the band came together, they have been splitting their time between doing television appearances, singing for troops in Afghanistan and performing with Swedish pop act, Roxette and Scottish rock band, Simple Minds, but fans will be happy to know that there is a new album in the works.
ISH remains one of the highest selling debut albums ever by an Australian band to this day.The story continues however with the release of their new album Generation-i., available from here. The new album has been three years in the making and is well worth the wait. Generation-i is a beautifully crafted album and once again showcases the songwriting talents of Erik Weideman and the band with a thoughtful and mature selection of new songs that fans old and new will love.
