His fascination with groove and rhythym could have suggested a career as a drummer. However, the mysterious, deep sounds proved more attractive. Erwin had his first performance playing the bass guitar while still in primary school.
After a series of adventures, completed and aborted educations and careers, the unavoidable became eminent.
Erwin longed for serious musical education and in 2006 he graduated at the Utrecht Conservatory, holding a degree in Bachelor of Music.From the start of his education he has been active as a bass guitar teacher, workshop leader and band coach. Besides giving private lessons, he taught at the UCK (Utrecht), at De Kom (Nieuwegein) and at Muziekschool Vianen.
Erwin regularly performs in a variety of settings: with one of his regular bands, as a session musician or in projects. His experience ranges from Soul, R’nB, HipHop and Gospel to Funk, Disco and Dance, and from Pop, Blues and Rock to Latin, Fusion and Jazz.
He performed on stages in The Netherlands, Belgium, Israel and Brazil, and studied in The Netherlands with Theo de Jong, Wilbrand Meischke and Sven Schuster and in São Paulo, Brazil, with Thiago Espirito Santo.
