“Errico manages to get more sophisticated, more bare-bones, more subtle, and more ballsy all at the same time. An amazing thing.” – The New Yorker

Wander Away, Errico’s sixth release, is lush pop-rock that expands his signature songwriting style with new instrumentation — including dobro, string sections, harmonium, and pedal steel — a varied group of cowriters, and a vocal vulnerability only hinted at previously.

In welcoming cowriters for the first time, Errico says, “I think of it as social networking within the artistic process. I’ve toured with (Soulive’s) Eric Krasno and Ari Hest, met Raul Midon and (Goldfrapp/Peter Gabriel keyboardist) Angie Pollock through friends, and worked with (Grammy-winning producer) Ben Mink before. Together, we went places I wouldn’t have thought of on my own.” Errico also showcases his skill as a guitarist in an intricate arrangement of the Tom Waits classic, “Johnsburg, Illinois.” “The song has such an aching quality to it, and I just needed to arrange it, so I’d always have it with me,” Errico says.

For Wander Away, Errico reunited with producer Ken Rich at Grand Street Recording. “Ken and I go way back,” he says. “I have always respected his naturalistic approach, and felt it would be a great match for the songs I was writing.
