With the debut of his third album, “Born to Rock,’ coming out fall
2005, Ricki Erik is once again preparing for his close-up. Look for
this album to contain a controversial song or two, as Ricki Erik is
known for writing and singing about matters of the heart. “If I was
GOD,” a song about world peace, tells of the actions Ricki would
take if he where of the HIGHEST POWER.
The track, “Lifetime of Pain,” is a song about loving someone,
losing someone and the attempts to getting one’s life back on track
after the bumpy ride. Ricki Erik wrote about his Lifetime of Pain or
rather the pain that’s associated with loving somebody when you open
your heart to someone you love but they just don’t love you back .
“Lifetime of Pain, “beckons, “Is it better to have had love and lost
love, then to never have had love at all?”
Now that he is done being hurt by love his masculinity and sexuality
“Friction Addiction,” well, is a song about sex and its captivating
lure. “Friction Addiction” speaks of lust and attraction with lyrics
like “I like the way you move, I like the way you dress, the way you
move your body, girl its what I like the best”. Let me tell you
ladies, you are just hoping that this hunk of a man is talking about
you. This A.D.D.I.C.T.I.O.N…..here it goes again!
Ricki likes to move his crowd not only with his wild edge and
stunning good looks or his smile to die for. He wants to bring you
to happy, sad, laughing, crying and have great sex all night long.
You know we all been there and done that. Loved it! Hated it! But
those catchy lyrics keeping you singing long after the song is over.
“Sunshine” the hottest new single being released from the album
“BORN TO ROCK” was written, produced and heartfully sang by Ricki
Erik for a friend of the singer who was having trouble in his
relationship and lost his woman. Ricki said his friend was trying to
win his girls’ heart back and that he was so taken back by this
humbling man and his effort to win back the love of his woman that
he wrote a special song dedicated to the couple titled “Sunshine”.
He then serenaded the couple with the song during a romantic night
attempting to rekindle the love they once shared. Ricki watched how
they danced, cried and held each other tight, Ricki was so touched
that he had no choice but to record and release the song for others
to enjoy. The message Ricki says is “ Don’t lose what you have and
don’t be willing to give up what you have so easily because it might
not come again”. The couple reportedly is working on rekindling
their relationship. Way to go! We love “Sunshine”. “You’re my
sunshine, Girl you’re my dream”.
Colleagues have always expected great things to happen for Ricki
Years ago, in a heart to heart conversation between Ricki Erik and
Stevie B (“Because I love You” LMR Records), Ricki asked the newly
famous recording artist, how do I know when I’ve created a hit?
Stevie B answered, “You’ll know when you hear it.” Recently, Jimmy
Starr, longtime friend and owner of Hideaway Recording Studios, said
he always knew Ricki had “it”. In fact, 20 years ago he said to Ricki
Erik, “I don’t know how or when but you will be a star.” Well, his
predictions became a reality, when recently in the recording studio
with Ricki he said, “You’ve got a few hits here”…referring to the
new album “Born to Rock” due out fall 2005”. “I knew you’d be back!”
