Erick Turnbull was born March 20,1977 in Napanee, Ontario, and had already begun playing guitar by the age of ten. At school, Erick used to entertain classmates with impressions of his teachers, and soon learned to combine his guitar playing with his comedy. He has been performing ever since. Turnbull is one of the many talented artists signed to CANdYRAT Records, a small but very effective record label. He is also the 2005 Canadian Guitar Festival Champion.
