Erick Gerber

Erick Gerber is a guitarist, vocalist, composer and songwriter whose emphatic focus on detail and ability to execute highly technical passages is contrasted by his soulful feel, voice and versatile musical expression - a byproduct of his broad musical tastes and formal music education (BMus Hons).


Erick is best known as the founding member of South African Progressive Metalcore act Red Helen, as well as former guitarist & backing vocalist of international platinum-selling Pop/Rock artist Jesse Clegg. Some of his most notable performances have been on live television in front of hundreds of thousands of viewers (Miss South Africa 2019) and at a music festival in Germany attended by over 50,000 people (Wacken Open Air 2014).

His eclectic musical background, mixed with even broader influences from styles like Funk, Blues, Jazz and modern Cinematic music, equates to a unique artistic sound, worthly of acclamation by both eccentric “music nerds” and “conventional” radio listeners alike. As a vocalist, Erick enjoys singing breathy, soulful, R&B-like melodies in his low range while adding sustained Rock-like fervent vocal tones in his high range. As a guitarist, he stands out with his slow, soulful, Blues-like expressions combined with his fast, technical runs during dynamic peaks.


Originally from Johannesburg, South Africa, he and his wife Lindsay have recently (mid 2022) moved to Northland, New Zealand where Erick has, for the first time, started his career as a solo artist - combining his eclectic experience to form a unique artistic sound like no other.
