Erik Janson is an award-winning songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist whose work has been featured on major label and independent releases. He also has numerous television, video game, advertising composing and original song credits.
From 2014-2018, Erik was a member and one of the principal songwriters and producers in the band Wildling. Wildling toured throughout the U.S. and Canada, achieved national radio play, numerous placements in television, film, advertisements and video games, and signed with Warner Records.
Erik’s current band, Left Field Messiah, is a band with Steve Bays (singer of Hot Hot Heat) and Jeremy Ruzumna (of Fitz and the Tantrums). Their music, a blend of indie rock, teeters between soul and dark funk in one moment, and quickly disintegrates into howling rock the next. Left Field Messiah has charted in the top 30 on the Canadian Alternative Rock charts and received national airplay in both the U.S. and Canada along with spins on SiriusXM.
Erik is also a member of the new roots and Americana band Leon Creek, which features the ascending soul singer Chris Pierce. Erik co- wrote and produced the Leon Creek record which will be released in September of 2021.
Other recent highlights included co-writing and producing music with the Hawaiian hip hop artist Ark Woods (“Like the Way” & “Watch Me Go”) which has been featured in a recent Microsoft advertisement and the forthcoming animated television series The Freak Brothers. Erik also produced an EP with the London based artist Izo Fitzroy which is currently receiving radio play in the U.S. (KCRW) and also works with acclaimed Australian artist EJ Worland
